Delivering an object storage solution is a constant challenge when adapting to changing environments. Scality has made updates to RING Scalable Storage to meet new user demands. Scality now offers an all-flash object storage system to address a growing trend where performance of object storage is of greater importance than previous usage as a general content repository. The use of objects for new applications that target object storage for primary data storage has been a main driver for increasing response time.
Increasing usage of object storage in healthcare, media & entertainment, financial services, research, and service provider markets is driving increasing performance and capacity demands as well. Expanding use leads to demands for new and enhanced capabilities. Scality has made advances with RING Scalable Storage for greater automation and simplification in addition to the performance gains.
Scality supports a number of all-flash offerings from its partnership with HPE. HPE provides Apollo and ProLiant servers and Scality RING Scalable Storage software.
