Parallels To Leverage Scality RING Technology

Cloud storage pioneer Scality has announced an OEM partnership that will see Scality RING provide the underlying Cloud Storage technology in Parallels' newly announced Parallels Automation for Cloud Infrastructure.
Parallels' cloud infrastructure solution enables service providers to rapidly and profitably deliver the infrastructure needed for cloud computing and cloud storage services to SMBs and developers - in particular, enabling service providers to compete with established cloud players.
Scality CEO Jerome Lecat said: "Once a new technology has been deployed and proven, the key to success is speeding up adoption, and this is where Scality RING is today. After deployment with seven service providers in Europe during 2010, Scality needs partners who can accelerate adoption of our ground-breaking technology for the Hosting Service Provider market.
He added: "Parallels is the perfect fit, thanks to the company's experience in distributed storage and its understanding of the needs of these customers. Parallels Automation for Cloud Infrastructure provides the ultimate level of manageability for service providers who want to offer a complete suite of Cloud Services, ranging from computing and virtualisation to storage. As a trusted partner with extended experience of service providers, Parallels will leverage our technology to deliver the perfect product for its customers."
Amir Sharif, Vice President of Virtualisation and IaaS at Parallels, said: "We were introduced to Scality by a customer, who had already deployed it. After conducting a deep analysis, we were impressed by the maturity of the technology and its market viability. Scality enables us to deliver a fully integrated Cloud Storage solution to our customers."Parallels Automation for Cloud Infrastructure is the industry's only infrastructure cloud solution that supports all key hosting processes like provisioning, billing and self-service management. Unlike competitor products, Parallels Automation for Cloud Infrastructure can be managed through an integrated management panel enabling IT professionals to self-create, self-scale and self-manage virtual datacenters.
The Scality RING platform creates a series of nodes that are built using off-the-shelf servers. Each node on the RING controls its own segment of the overall storage pool. By monitoring other segments and constantly replicating - as well as load balancing - the data, the storage becomes self-healing in the event of a drive or segment of the pool failing for whatever reason. Scality technology is used by service providers to deploy Storage-as-a-Service offerings, by email providers to store emails for millions of users, and by web service providers managing billions of flies with very high performance expectations, either for Web 2.0 or business applications.
