An international government agency deployed a 3PB Scality RING storage cloud that will be deployed for various internal applications, including enterprise backup and file sync ’n share. Additional applications are being evaluated for integration. This customer leverages the key RING features for Global Enterprise cloud, including support for mixed workloads, multiple protocols (CIFS, NFS and REST are used) and the hardware-agnostic architecture: the Scality RING has been deployed on a mix of different hardware platforms from multiple vendors.
This customer’s Scality RING has been deployed over 4 sites and is being managed through the RING Supervisor by a remote team. Additional benefits that made a difference are the easy support (a benefit related to the clear hardware/software separation) and overall low TCO, partly because of the low management effort.
