Versatility to support multiple applications and workloads.


Data integrity and availability even if a server or an entire site goes down.

Bloomberg set a goal for storage: “anything from anywhere”. Scality helped them achieve it.

The Scality solution manages multiple workflows across multiple clouds:

  • Media file ingest
  • Content distribution
  • Scalability and durability standards that enable efficient, indefinite retention of their growing content
  • Edit workflows
  • Playback directly from Scality RING
  • Supporting a global asset repository across multiple regions

Bloomberg’s view of storage started with some basic premises:

  • Cloud egress is costly, and must be managed
  • Storing content on multiple cloud providers has a lot of benefits if managed properly
  • Public cloud storage doesn’t guarantee 100% uptime
  • Global content lifecycle policies enable flexible, standardized and scalable data management
