SGI Announces OEM Partnership with Scality for Scale-Out Storage Solution

New Object- and File-based Storage Solution Leads the Industry in Density and Performance

SGI announced a strategic OEM agreement with Scality, a leader in software-defined storage, to provide a unified scale-out storage solution that offers both extreme scale and high performance allowing customers to manage massive unstructured data sprawl.
Bundled together with the extreme density of SGI® Modular InfiniteStorage™ (aka SGI MIS™) platform, Scality's Organic RING Storage software enables enterprises to take advantage of a converged multi-petabyte storage architecture that scales to billions of files with maximum data security in the minimum of datacenter real estate. A single 19" rack can house nearly three petabytes of scale-out storage with total data security and no single point of failure, to enable a self-healing infrastructure that can grow as needed with no data migration or downtime required. more
