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

This means data administrators no longer need to worry about data silos filling up or manually managing load balancing from one tier or platform to another. This solution enables a unified, efficient and cost-effective approach to long-term data management.

The SGI MIS storage server platform is a perfect match for Scality software, offering two high-performance dual socket servers powered by Intel® Xeon® processors, and up to 72 3.5" hard disk drives in a single 4U chassis. This represents up to 280 TB of storage, reserving two disks for system tasks, in just a 4U chassis. Expanding the system is easy- simply add more SGI MIS units and the Scality software will automatically detect and load balance across the entire infrastructure.

"The combination of Scality RING and SGI MIS storage server represents an important step for the storage industry coupling together the densest storage server and our very comprehensive storage software offering," said Jerome Lecat, CEO, Scality. "SGI's selection of Scality software validates our technology leadership and commitment to address enterprise challenges, as illustrated by deployments at a leading online storage provider."

SGI has long been a leader in high-performance and active archive storage solutions, with customers purchasing nearly 600 petabytes of disk-based storage in 2012 alone. SGI's industry-leading storage software ecosystem and best-of-breed hardware have resulted in the company being at the forefront of solving some of the world's largest data management challenges in media archives, life sciences, manufacturing and other data-intensive industries.

"One of the key challenges of scale-out storage solutions is to deliver the self-healing advantages of object-based storage while also maintaining the performance requirements needed at the application layer," said Jose Reinoso, vice president of storage engineering, SGI. "Scality's RING architecture allows us to offer our customers cost-efficient petabyte-scale storage with independent scaling of throughput. It is the best of both worlds."
