Scality RING Ensures
Data Availability for World’s
Largest Electric Utility
"Its stability is the most impressive thing about Scality RING. In the end, it’s the category’s best software.”
This is EDF’s #1 concern. Access to data is vital to success.
EDF is recognizing a 50% cost reduction using Scality RING versus competitors.
Growth = success. Storage must scale without service interruption as availability is paramount.
While IT is a small organization within the massive EDF group, it bears a great deal of responsibility. Ruggero Gatti’s team was recently presented an award for innovation—and the innovation that generated the honor was their deployment of the Scality RING.
“They consider lots of ideas at the production level for these awards,” said Ruggero Gatti, Data Management Engineer at EDF. “The idea is to recognize that even in a big, conventional organization, we can innovate.”
The first use cases for EDF’s use of Scality RING are Backup (stretched across two datacenters) and Big Data (offloading more costly primary storage as a data lake).
