Scality reçoit la certification Dell Technology Partner

Scality rejoint le programme Dell Technology Partner grâce à sa solution de Stockage Objet Haute performance.

Zone EMEA Paris - 9 Jan 2013 - Scality, leader du stockage objet pour les applications web, a aujourd'hui reçu la certification partenaire pour le programme Dell Technology Partner. Grâce à la certification de Scality RING sur Dell PowerEdge R620, Scality offre désormais une solution intégrée, déjà déployée en production chez plusieurs clients, qui stocke de manière évolutive et performante les données non-structurées.

Le système de stockage organique RING de Scality offre une solution de stockage objet entièrement logicielle à la fois pour les applications primaires et le stockage à long-terme. Elle fonctionne sur des serveurs x86 standards, permettant de choisir le matériel optimal pour tout type de déploiement, ce qui laisse au client le choix du distributeur de matériel informatique, en fonction des relations de confiance déjà établies, des besoins de l'application et de ses utilisateurs.

Jérôme Lecat, PDG de Scality, nous explique que « Scality a une relation très positive avec Dell depuis longtemps, avant même la certification pour le programme Dell Technology Partner. Les nombreuses installations de systèmes Dell que nous avons réalisées attestent de notre relation et de notre compatibilité technique et économique. ».

Scality a annoncé plusieurs déploiements basés sur des systèmes Dell, tels que :
- Une solution pour le stockage de fichiers média volumineux pour le Centre d'Observation Terrestre de l'Agence Spatiale Allemande - où RING permet de stocker des images satellites haute-résolution.
- Le stockage primaire d'emails pour les 8 millions d'utilisateurs de Libero, le plus gros service Email en Italie.
- Un service de Stockage Cloud supportant 2 millions de clients chez Host Europe en Allemagne.

La flexibilité et le large éventail de connecteurs d'applications de Scality RING en font un choix parfait pour de nombreux cas de système de stockage très haute capacité - y compris StaaS, Emails, Médias et Web 2.0.

Chacun de ces trois cas utilise un connecteur différent, suivant les besoins du client : Host Europe utilise un connecteur compatible Amazon S3 qui permet une facturation flexible, et Libero utilise le nouveau Système de Fichiers Scale-Out avec la technologie de protection des données ARC (à base d'Erasure Coding).

Certifiée sur Dell PowerEdge R620, RING est une solution de stockage abordable, facilement opérable, évolutive et avec une très longue durabilité des données.

The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
"For over 25 years we have been working with a lot of enterprise customers and we have seen how companies create applications.

The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers.

There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
