Scality’s RING Organic Storage™ is the ultimate solution for the storage of unstructured data for large scale Cloud Services such as webmail, photo, video and file sharing, SaaS, cloud backup, and Cloud Storage providers (STaaS). RING Organic Storage is the first object-based storage technology to deliver the performance required for primary application storage. Easily scaling to exabytes, using x86 commodity server hardware. The organic design creates a system with distributed intelligence and so no single point of failure. As a result, it is resilient and self healing, implementing technology refresh with zero downtime and no data migration.
Nimbula supports Scality’s RING Organic Storage by launching "connector" VMs in Nimbula's cloud environment. These connector VMs provide access for other VMs to Scality's object storage located either in a local or remote cluster. With Scality, Nimbula now provides a complete end-to-end compute and storage cloud solution.
