I was invited to attend a Dagstuhl seminar on distributed systems. This seminar was a great opportunity to step back and take stock of the progress we’ve made since our first product release, to see how much progress has been made in this space and consider the work that remains to be done.
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.
