Paris, France (PRWEB) July 19, 2010
Scality, the developer of massively-scalable storage software for email and cloud storage applications today announced that Host Europe, the third largest provider of Internet and hosting services in the German-speaking market has selected Scality RING storage software to provide a Cloud Storage solution for their Cloud Hosting customers.
Host Europe has a strong strategic focus on virtualization and cloud technologies and is Europe’s largest virtualization provider with 35,000 active virtual machines. Host Europe was looking for a storage solution to provide both public and private cloud storage and to cater for the rapidly increasing customer demand for archiving and cost-effective "long-tail" storage for large files that are only called rarely.
According to Patrick Pulvermüller, Managing Director of Host Europe, “we chose Scality after examining more than 10 different technology options, including Caringo, Cassandra and Parascale. Our customers want a Cloud Storage Service where they can start small with just a few Gigabytes to prove the concept and then easily scale to Petabytes of data storage without any technological change or migration process; Scality gives us this capability. In addition, Scality’s Amazon S3 compatible interface is a big plus for our customers, as it allows them to tap into the rapidly expanding market for applications that leverage cloud storage. Finally, Scality’s software and open interface for provisioning and billing make the solution easy to deploy.”
Jérôme Lecat, CEO of Scality added, “we are very proud and happy to have been selected by Host Europe: proud, because Host Europe is one of the leading Infrastructure as a Service providers in Europe, and because they had us go through a rigorous series of tests and comparisons against our competition; happy because of the trusted relationship we have built with Host Europe team over the years and we look forward to a long lasting business relationship.”
