DMM.com built a multi-petabyte streaming infrastructure with Scality RING
Manager, Infrastructure Division, DMM.com Labo Corporation
Scality RING is flexible and DMM can add server capacity as the content library grows.
DMM.com no longer needed alternative storage systems for high-demand, high-volume content.
DMM has been able to upgrade and expand its storage infrastructure while lowering costs.
With an ever growing content library of more than 300,000 titles, most of them decidedly not mainstream, DMM.com delivers results on the search for different media. It does so fast and in most any file format you want.
Shifting core components of its content library to the Scality RING provided Mr. Watanabe’s team immediate relief. The Scality RING was effortlessly capable of handling all requirements that DMM.com’s customers could throw at it. In fact, it did it so well that DMM.com reduced the cost of its content delivery network. And no longer needed alternative storage systems for high-demand, high-volume content. Everything was easier. And took less time.

The number of movie titles in the DMM.com content library
Video rental stores were never where they were needed. Popular videos were always in short supply. If you did manage to find the right film, the DVD was scratched or the video cassette not rewound. And then, once you had seen it, you had to return it to the store again. Tedious.
Such high-demand, high-volume sales required the Infrastructure Division at DMM.com under Mr. Watanabe to move that title to an alternative storage system to ensure a decent customer experience. The ongoing strong growth of the content library was also driving existing systems to costly limits. Upgrades were expensive and required migrations of existing data – a time-consuming exercise, to say the least.
