Rackspace Achieves Real Economic and Service Advantages Using Scality Software-Defined Storage

Scality announced that its customer, Rackspace, having chosen Scality RING from among 23 software-defined storage solutions that it evaluated, has seen advantages that exceeded their expectations.

In the competitive business of hosting, infrastructure costs-CAPEX and OPEX both-are key to optimizing profitability. So, when Rackspace embarked on an infrastructure refresh project, lowering TCO was a critical goal-second only to that of maintaining the absolute best in service levels. And, because growth comes with success, Rackspace also required a solution that scales without limits, simply and without interruptions. They found it with Scality RING.

"We consider software-defined storage to be critical to our strategy for its growth potential, data center efficiency and efficient -and flexible-use of assets," said Dan Shain, Director R&D, Rackspace Cloud Office.

Not only has Rackspace seen a 45 percent reduction in TCO due to substantial CAPEX and OPEX savings, but they're seeing significant secondary benefits with their move to Scality RING software-defined storage, including the ability to vacate an entire datacenter, thanks to the compact storage footprint.

Software-defined Scality RING object storage turns any standard x86 server into highly expandable storage. It scales without limits and guarantees 100 percent availability-all while reducing cost by as much as 90 percent compared to legacy systems. Scality RING is deployed by more than 170 petabyte-scale customers around the world. It features native file protocols and high-fidelity AWS S3 API, data encryption, volume and bucket data protection, data-restorative versioning, extended location control for data sovereignty, and geo-replication for disaster recovery for customers requiring ironclad data protection.
