Scality: Using…[SDS] to Manage Petabyte-Scale Data
Organizations that have petabyte data storage requirements — and that includes more each day – are unlikely to turn to traditional enterprise storage solutions to manage these environments. Rather, they are more and more likely to turn to software-defined storage that includes the use of object-based storage. And that is where products such as the Scality RING come in. Managing petabyte-scale amounts of data requires a different mindset and way of doing the data and storage management functions, such as data protection, and that is the role of software-defined storage.
Vendors large and small are targeting the capacity-driven segment of the revamped enterprise storage space. The fact that Hewlett Packard Enterprise is throwing its weight (i.e., resources, including money) behind Scality qualifies not only as an endorsement of the company’s solutions, but the capacity-driven market itself.
