Acting as a single, distributed system, the RING can scale linearly across thousands of servers, multiple sites, and an unlimited number of objects.

Low cost storage system that has good support

What is our primary use case?

We used Scality during the capacity extension.

Pros and Cons

  • "I think it's the economic factor. This solution has the lowest cost for storage systems."
  • "When we used this solution in 2015, it was not scalable at all. I don't know if they have improved on that, but at the time, scalability was just horrible."

What other advice do I have?

I think I would recommend Scality but there is another solution that I'm going to dig into more, which is OpenIO. Right now for new projects, I don't know yet if I'm going to recommend Scality or OpenIO. Most probably OpenIO, but it's not necessarily based on technical features. It's because we have a commercial agreement with OpenIO. I would rate this solution as eight out of ten.
