Scality reçoit la certification Dell Technology Partner

Scality rejoint le programme Dell Technology Partner grâce à sa solution de Stockage Objet Haute performance.

Zone EMEA Paris - 9 Jan 2013 - Scality, leader du stockage objet pour les applications web, a aujourd'hui reçu la certification partenaire pour le programme Dell Technology Partner. Grâce à la certification de Scality RING sur Dell PowerEdge R620, Scality offre désormais une solution intégrée, déjà déployée en production chez plusieurs clients, qui stocke de manière évolutive et performante les données non-structurées.

Le système de stockage organique RING de Scality offre une solution de stockage objet entièrement logicielle à la fois pour les applications primaires et le stockage à long-terme. Elle fonctionne sur des serveurs x86 standards, permettant de choisir le matériel optimal pour tout type de déploiement, ce qui laisse au client le choix du distributeur de matériel informatique, en fonction des relations de confiance déjà établies, des besoins de l'application et de ses utilisateurs.

Jérôme Lecat, PDG de Scality, nous explique que « Scality a une relation très positive avec Dell depuis longtemps, avant même la certification pour le programme Dell Technology Partner. Les nombreuses installations de systèmes Dell que nous avons réalisées attestent de notre relation et de notre compatibilité technique et économique. ».

Scality a annoncé plusieurs déploiements basés sur des systèmes Dell, tels que :
- Une solution pour le stockage de fichiers média volumineux pour le Centre d'Observation Terrestre de l'Agence Spatiale Allemande - où RING permet de stocker des images satellites haute-résolution.
- Le stockage primaire d'emails pour les 8 millions d'utilisateurs de Libero, le plus gros service Email en Italie.
- Un service de Stockage Cloud supportant 2 millions de clients chez Host Europe en Allemagne.

La flexibilité et le large éventail de connecteurs d'applications de Scality RING en font un choix parfait pour de nombreux cas de système de stockage très haute capacité - y compris StaaS, Emails, Médias et Web 2.0.

Chacun de ces trois cas utilise un connecteur différent, suivant les besoins du client : Host Europe utilise un connecteur compatible Amazon S3 qui permet une facturation flexible, et Libero utilise le nouveau Système de Fichiers Scale-Out avec la technologie de protection des données ARC (à base d'Erasure Coding).

Certifiée sur Dell PowerEdge R620, RING est une solution de stockage abordable, facilement opérable, évolutive et avec une très longue durabilité des données.
