Scality: Petabyte-scale Software-Defined Storage On Commodity Hardware
San Francisco-based Scality used the OpenStack Summit to show off its Linux-based software-defined petabyte scale unified data storage platform running on commodity hardware. The platform provides object storage technology with such capabilities as replication and erasure coding, tiering and exposure via multiple interfaces and APIs.
Scality's platform, which previously supported multiple object APIs as Scality REST API, Amazon S3 API, CDMI and OpenStack Swift, now also includes such file-sharing protocols as NFS, CIFS, AFP and its own Scale Out File System. The platform also has a block interface to OpenStack via the Cinder.
