Scality has announced a new RING deployment at Deluxe OnDemand. Since introducing the RING in 2010, Scality has made significant upgrades to the platform to help service providers, cloud service providers, media & entertainment, global enterprises, and governments easily transition to software-defined data centers. Advances like a native scale out file system, use case oriented performance enhancements, and OpenStack integration have led to new partnerships, customer acquisitions, and expanded deployments that cumulate in the support of over 500 million end users worldwide.
The Scality RING’s performance exceeds scale-out NAS, and increases as the system grows, making new enterprise applications and services possible. The Scality RING provides line-rate throughput performance that scales linearly from 1GB/s in a single interface to unlimited interfaces. Deluxe OnDemand provides leading video workflow management and turnkey content-supply solutions to MVPDs, Retailers, and Programmers for video on demand VOD, TV Everywhere, OTT, and Electronic Sell-Through applications.
Deluxe chose the Scality RING because of its performance, reliability, and cost-savings. “We currently house over 80,000 titles, spanning new releases, feature films, and television, each in multiple bit rates. Current architectures do not provide the necessary support for streaming technologies and dynamic packaging to address our customers’ requirement to deliver tens of thousands of titles, to hundreds of different devices, at an affordable cost,” said Allan Lamkin, CTO and SVP of Deluxe OnDemand. “Scality provides the performance we need in our mission-critical environment, with the ability to scale to tens of petabytes without storage appliance lock-in. By running our origin server with the Scality RING, we expect to save several million dollars, the savings of which we can pass along to our customers.”
The RING’s scale out file system interfaces enable simple integration to existing servers and the throughput performance necessary to ingest more than 10 terabytes of content a day, with the ability to continue to scale linearly. Highly efficient data resilience is gained directly from the RING’s erasure coding, which protects massive video files with as little as twenty-nine percent overhead. With the RING, Deluxe can now ingest new titles with file system interfaces and stream the same content through parallel HTTP REST interfaces, eliminating the need for storage at CDN providers.
