SDS Day started off New York style, with a networking session. Attendees grabbed snacks and took advantage of the opportunity to talk about their storage needs and solutions--current and future--with their peers, with people from Scality, and with representatives from our sponsoring partners Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, our Platinum Sponsor, and Cisco, Data Dynamics, Primary Data and Veeam, Gold Sponsors for the event.
The Scality RING has an integrated scale-out file system (SOFS) that runs natively on top of our underlying software-defined object-based platform. Our SOFS behaves just as you’d expect: exactly like a file system. But everything underneath it is an object store — extending the many benefits of object architecture to your file-based applications.
Dusseldorf SDS Day The SDS Day tour continues. Dusseldorf was the site for Scality’s first Software-Defined Storage Day in Germany on Thursday the 21st of September. A crowd of nearly 50 people joined the event held at the BeOne conference center near the Rhine. As attendees gathered before the start of the program, they had an opportunity to mingle and speak with representatives from Scality and our partners HPE, Cisco, Ctera, Veeam and Owncloud. To kick things off, Peter Kocur, Scality’s country manager for DACH, welcomed attendees and introduced Erwan Menard, president and COO of Scality to start the program. .
If attendance at Scality’s first Software-Defined Storage Day in London on September 20th is any indication, it’s pretty clear that people are looking for solutions to the ever-growing data storage issue. The meeting room at the Shangri-La Hotel at the iconic Shard was so full that they had to bring in extra chairs during the break. Over coffee, before the speaking kicked-off, more than 100 attendees enjoyed the great view from the 35th floor at the Shard, and an opportunity to visit and speak with Scality partners HPE, Ctera, ASG Atempo, Veeam and Storage Made Easy.
Now in year two, Scality is taking its successful SDS Day (Software-defined storage Day) to new cities: London and Dusseldorf.
Fact vs. Fiction FICTION #1: Software-Defined Storage Is Just Vendor Hype In the early days of software-defined storage (SDS), some over-ambitious vendors repackaged existing products and slapped an SDS tag on them, in a ham-fisted attempt to gain a quick foothold in an emerging market. Initially, this tarnished the concept and slowed adoption. But that was then. This is now. Over the past five years, SDS has earned due recognition and market acceptance as the best route to immense storage capacity at low cost. In a recent survey by Enterprise Strategy Group, 68% of IT leaders say they’ve committed to.
When people think of securing data, their thought process usually begins and ends with encryption. Encryption is a great start but it is certainly not the end of an organization’s journey to properly secure their data. Along the long road to achieving security greatness should come a stop for talks about compliance. In this blog, I will take you on a quick journey about what is commonly needed for compliance with a cloud storage solution. There are many different regulatory rules out there that organizations are using. For example, HIPAA is a set of security rules and safeguards that must.
A revolution is in the offing for one of the most time-honored and familiar IT rituals: data backup. As Digital Business continues to multiply the volume of incoming data, the average enterprise backup has reached a petabyte or more in scale.
Guest Post écrit par SCC Le stockage est l’un des derniers bastions de l’IT où l’impact du digital a tardé à se faire sentir. Pourtant, après vingt ans d’une lente évolution, l’ensemble de l’écosystème du stockage semble vivre un réveil brutal. Nouvelles technologies logicielles et non plus seulement matérielles avec le SDS (software-defined stockage), nouveaux business models, systèmes plus flexibles et moins chers… La révolution est en marche alors que longtemps on a pu se contenter de changements incrémentaux successifs. Le tout, bien sûr, au service des utilisateurs et des entreprises. Quel futur pour l’infrastructure ? Et quelle place, demain, pour.
