SGI Announces OEM Partnership With Scality For Scale-Out Storage Solution

FREMONT, Calif., Jan. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SGI (Nasdaq:SGI), the trusted leader in technical computing, today announced a strategic OEM agreement with Scality, a leader in software-defined storage, to provide a unified scale-out storage solution that offers both extreme scale and high performance allowing customers to manage massive unstructured data sprawl.

Bundled together with the extreme density of the SGI® Modular InfiniteStorage™ (SGI MIS™) platform, Scality's  RING Organic Storage software enables enterprises to take advantage of a converged multi-petabyte storage architecture that scales to billions of files with maximum data security in the minimum of datacenter real estate. A single 19" rack can house nearly three petabytes of scale-out storage with total data security and no single point of failure, to enable a self-healing infrastructure that can grow as needed with no data migration or downtime required.

"Scale-out object-based solutions are designed to address this particular set of problems by minimizing manual intervention for storage expansions, migrations, and recoveries from storage system failure," said Ashish Nadkarni, research director, Storage Systems at IDC. "Such a dispersed, fault-tolerant architecture enables IT organizations to more efficiently absorb data growth in a manner that is predicable for the long term."

Deployed for a wide range of application needs, Scality RING is perfectly suited for tier one environments with very demanding applications in term of IOPS and latency, but also for storage capacity oriented applications with millions of users, such as online storage services or long-term archives. From an application standpoint, the appliance presents a unified data interface capable of delivering local and remote, object and file access. The platform is self-healing, affording very high levels of data durability, provided by replication and erasure coding techniques. Optional configurations offer geo-redundancy and auto-tiering. Designed as a massively parallel system, Scality can scale to accommodate a wide variety of different capacity and performance profiles.
