Dell Extends Partnership with Scality; Launches the SD700-S
SAN FRANCISCO, CA: Dell has extended its partnership with software-defined storage company Scality by unveiling the Dell SD7000-S, a high-density purpose-built storage server. Crafted for large-scale file and object storage requirements, the Dell SD700-S features the Scality RING file that facilitates the storage of petabyte-scale data.
The new appliance significantly improves a datacenter’s efficiencies in power, cooling, and rackspace while enabling advanced deployment capabilities. The storage server is also independent of complex hardware for managing and maintaining RING deployments which allows enterprises to increase the cost efficiency. Furthermore, the SD700-S, equipped with Scality RING supports file, object, and OpenStack access in a single consolidated system.
“The new SD7000-S file and object storage server from Dell is optimized for maximum performance and petabyte-scale workloads,” adds Erwan Menard, President and COO, Scality. “By working closely with Dell, our joint storage customers benefit with reduced IT complexity, lower overall costs, and more efficient infrastructure.”
Dell has been leveraging Scality RING on a number of its solutions like the Dell PowerEdge server, Dell Storage, and Dell Networking portfolio. With the introduction of SD700-S, Dell and Scality have now offered object storage systems for a diverse range of customers in financial services, government agencies, and media and entertainment. As both the companies extend their partnership in object storage, customers can now get systems that offer high performance, superior data protection, multiprotocol data access, and product lifecycle management.
“Scality provides Dell the ability to offer our customers object storage with continuous data availability, non-disruptive upgrades and linear scaling up to dozens of petabytes,” says Travis Vigil, Executive Director, Dell Storage. “The new Dell Storage SD7000-S is purpose built for Scality RING and helps eliminate guesswork, allowing customers to get up-and-running quickly with our proven technology.”
