Simplify your object storage deployment with the Scality RING fast start bundle


Discover how deploying object storage in your business environment just got simpler, thanks to HPE and Scality.

Cricket world cup starts in less than three weeks. Here in India, cricket is the most popular sport. Everyone follows the Simplify object storage-HPE-Scality-blog.jpgsport during the world cup. Even if you’re not that interested, it’s impossible to avoid the activity that surrounds them—and this includes the Monday captain. This is when you go to any office water cooler or other gathering spot on a Monday during world cup season and everybody there seems to think that they can do a better job than any of the real players.

Data growth fueled by expansion of Big Data and IoT reminds me of these endless discussions. Everyone thinks they have the perfect plan to solve any this problem. When it comes to addressing data growth, however, the problem is that everyone is correct AND wrong at the same time!

Here are few simple questions: Is it tough to run your business-critical applications due to excessive growth? Are budget constraints prohibiting you to keep up with the growth? Are you working to ensure a cloud-ready IT strategy? Is agility a strategic goal?

Here’s an idea: flexible, scalable, efficient object storage

Often I hear from customers about technology vendors focusing primarily on product or solution features and technology—and pay very little attention to solving customer challenges. I always believe discussions with you, the customer, should focus on understanding the challenges you face and how our offerings can help solve these problems. That said, we at HPE and Scality strongly believe that we need to keep innovating to deliver compelling object storage solutions that address the ever-evolving challenges you face when managing your growing data volumes.

How HPE and Scality equal HPE Scalable Object Storage with Scality RING

HPE Scalable Object Storage with Scality RING is a software-defined storage (SDS) solution for petabyte-scale data storage. It creates scale-out storage systems that converge the storage of object-based and file-based data from multiple applications. HPE Scalable Object Storage with Scality RING is architected to scale up to trillions of objects in a single namespace. The platform’s access and storage layers can be scaled independently to thousands of nodes, all of which can be accessed directly and concurrently with no added latency.

HPE Scalable Object Storage with Scality RING provides multiple doorways for your applications. It supports file protocols and object APIs and can be deployed with OpenStack environments in one consolidated system. Also, choice of deployment topologies including single system in a single site, single system distributed across multiple sites, and multiple systems on multiple sites replicating one another.HPE-Scality-Object Storage 1.jpgThe combination of the Scality RING software, ultra-dense HPE Apollo 4200 Gen10 and HPE Apollo 4510 Gen10, along with advisory and support services, provide an object solution with the flexibility, resiliency, and performance required to drive down the cost of storage at petabyte-scale.

Over the past few years, HPE, along with Scality, has helped you reduce cost, lower risk and eliminate complexity while managing your data. Last month we launched the AI data node in partnership with Scality and WekaIO, and on May 6, we announced the Scality RING fast start bundle to make it easier to deploy the object storage solution in your environment.
