Rackspace Achieves Real Economic And Service Advantages Using Scality Software-Defined Storage


SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Scality, a pioneer of software-defined, multi-cloud data storage, today announced that its customer, Rackspace, having chosen Scality RING from among 23 software-defined storage solutions that it evaluated, has seen advantages that exceeded their expectations.

In the competitive business of hosting, infrastructure costs—CAPEX and OPEX both—are key to optimizing profitability. So, when Rackspace embarked on an infrastructure refresh project, lowering TCO was a critical goal—second only to that of maintaining the absolute best in service levels. And, because growth comes with success, Rackspace also required a solution that scales without limits, simply and without interruptions. They found it with Scality RING. 

"We consider software-defined storage to be critical to our strategy for its growth potential, data center efficiency and efficient —and flexible—use of assets," said Dan Shain, Director R&D, Rackspace Cloud Office.

Not only has Rackspace seen a 45 percent reduction in TCO due to substantial CAEX and OPEX savings, but they're seeing significant secondary benefits with their move to Scality RING software-defined storage, including the ability to vacate an entire datacenter, thanks to the compact storage footprint.



Software-defined Scality RING object storage turns any standard x86 server into highly expandable storage. It scales without limits and guarantees 100 percent availability—all while reducing cost by as much as 90 percent compared to legacy systems. Scality RING is deployed by more than 170 petabyte-scale customers around the world. It features native file protocols and high-fidelity AWS S3 API, data encryption, volume and bucket data protection, data-restorative versioning, extended location control for data sovereignty, and geo-replication for disaster recovery for customers requiring ironclad data protection.
