Super Micro Computer, Inc. announced a solution leveraging the Scality SA‘ RING offering, enabling enterprises to scale and protect their most valuable assets – data, in on-premises or hybrid cloud deployments.
RING is a software defined native file and object storage solution for large scale on-premises storage and management of unstructured data. It enables performance-optimized and capacity-optimized storage with automated data durability levels using multiple data protection methods including geo-distribution capabilities. The two companies’ solution delivers a petabyte-scale storage framework offering cost-effective scaling, performance, and resiliency paired with Supermicro’s hardware configurations that provides users an appliance-like deployment and service levels to meet enterprise requirements.
“As part of our ongoing commitment to work with leading software organizations, Supermicro is teaming with Scality to bring a simple, scalable, and powerful storage solution to the most demanding environments today,” said Vik Malyala, SVP, Supermicro. “Customers will quickly see how easy it is to deplo the Scality RING software on Supermico servers and storage systems. Our reference architectures allow us to design and implement solutions based on customer requirements from our flexible Building Block Solutions approach.“
This flexibility makes it possible to construct capacity-optimized RINGs or performance-optimized RINGs. In all cases, the software abstracts the underlying physical servers and HDDs. It can exploit the lower-latency access characteristics of NVMe to maintain its internal metadata. It is designed to scale out over time, across server gens, as well as the increasing storage densities expected as a normal part of the RING platform lifecycle.
“We are thrilled to create a joint solution with Supermicro that benefits our customers,” said Wally MacDermid, VP, strategic alliances, Scality. “Innovative organizations looking to transform their infrastructures for today’s digital economy want solutions that are easy to deploy and maintain while protecting their most important asset, their data. Supermicro’s highly-configurable systems with the latest storage interface technologies combined with Scality’s industry leading RING, gives customers business agility, resiliency and efficiency to solve storage and orchestration challenges at petabyte-scale.“
