Biting the hand that feeds IT

Colocation-based interconnection

Digital business is enabled and enhanced through high-speed, secure, low-latency communication among enterprise assets, cloud resources, and an ecosystem of service providers and peers. Architects and IT leaders must consider carrier-neutral data centre interconnection as a digital business enabler.




The edge manifesto

The edge manifesto calls for the placement of content, compute and data centre resources on the edge of the network, closer to concentrations of users.

This augmentation of the traditional centralised data centre model ensures a better user experience demanded by digital business.




Blueprints for the interconnected enterprise

Connectivity is critical for businesses today, yet most organisations have a network architecture that was set up years ago and may no longer meet the requirements of modern hybrid cloud, multi-cloud and mobile environments.

Interconnection with multiple clouds and networks in central locations, such as data centres, can be a highly useful option when updating network architecture.




Leverage your digital edge

This white paper seeks to educate business leadership on the rapid emergence and impacts of digital disruption and the importance of re-architecting IT infrastructure in response.

The paper describes exciting new collaboration and business models and explains how an Interconnection Oriented Architecture (IOA) strategy empowers businesses to react in real time, adapt quickly to change and leverage digital ecosystems to create new value and growth.




Make your food and beverage outlet stand out

There’s no doubt that Singaporeans love food, and the food options here are endless. However, being spoilt for choice means that it will be difficult for your business to get their attention.

If you have a website or facebook page, you can achieve top-of-mind awareness for your business by advertising online.

Adtiq is an affordable and easy-to-use online advertising tool created by Singtel. It helps you to plan, create, manage, and optimise online advertising campaigns on Google and Facebook to reach out to all your potential customers online.




Addressing the Storage Challenges of Digital Video Workflow

File-based video workflows can be framed into three basic stages: content creation, delivery / packaging and content distribution. Within each of these stages, there are opportunities to address distinct storage pain points.

The digital film is rapidly evolving to 4K and beyond, but their adoption and consumption creates immense challenges for the storage domains.

Scality RING can help address the unmet storage needs of 4K/6K video workflows.




Video Distribution & Nearline Archive eBook

Consumer expectations for ever-changing, ever-growing content is real. Availability and fast access are critical to monetization immediate and via customer loyalty earned from a satisfying experience.

To meet the demand for instant gratification, media assets need to be available, fast. To meet the business needs of the media asset owner, storage for the assets needs to be reliable, high-performance, and always-on.




Software for Storing the Information Age

Today’s data centers have moved beyond the rigid deployment of proprietary hardware based compute, network and storage solutions to a new Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) model that achieves agility through software-based infrastructure services.

The SDDC is embodied by today’s well-proven software virtualization solutions for compute - as provided by hyper visors to full cloud automation software platforms.




7 Design Principles that Comprise Scality RING Software-defined Object Storage

Cloud and object-based storage revolutionizes the way IT organizations modernize their data centers. The main reasons for the switch to object storage come down to the basic requirements when choosing any storage solution: cost, performance, scalability, data protection, and service availability.

The storage solution should never inhibit innovation, or negatively impact productivity. It should enable organizations to seamlessly scale capacity in line with business growth. Scality took all of these requirements to heart when designing Scality RING software-defined object storage.




Scality RING S3 Connector

Industry observers have long been following the emergence of object storage for large-scale unstructured data, reflected in major public storage cloud offerings from the likes of Amazon, Microsoft, and Google.

Far and away, the clear market leader today among these clouds is the Amazon Web Services (AWS) S3 service, which since its launch in 2006 has grown dramatically with EC2 and other value-added services.




Digital Video Surveillance Archive

This white paper delves into the new era of digital video surveillance archives. Digital video is quickly replacing analog systems, driven by requirements for high quality images for enhancing detail under a variety of visual conditions such as motion, low-lighting, and distance.

Digital video creates very large files that agencies may need to store indefinitely, exceeding the capacity and performance of legacy archive systems. This paper discusses a solution for lowering the costs of very high capacity archive storage using software defined object storage, industry standard x86 hardware, and an open-platform VMS (Video Management System). These are the foundations upon which large scale digital video surveillance can be achieved with most efficient cost, scale, and performance.




The Total Economic Impact of Scality RING with Dell Storage Servers

In 2016, Scality and Dell commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact (TEI) study to examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realise by deploying RING with Dell storage servers that can scale into the range of petabytes (PB).

The purpose of this study is to provide a framework for readers to evaluate the financial impact at their organizations that are facing challenges with scalability, performance, and durability and can potentially benefit from an object storage solution deployed on a Scality RING with Dell storage servers.




Serving Over 30 Million Mailboxes with Greater Flexibility and Resilience

Scality allows businesses to have data storage on standard x86 servers, instead of closed SAN appliances. In addition, Scality is hardware-agnostic, meaning that any hardware can be utilized and/or swapped in and out of the data center without interrupting operations. This flexibility was of great benefit when Comcast switched hardware after initial deployment.

Looking to the future, when Comcast continues to expand, the hardware agnostic design of the Scality RING will allow it to add heterogeneous hardware. With the RING, Comcast can use a wide selection of performance and capacity-dense servers, from a variety of manufacturers, even multiple generations simultaneously




Eliminating storage bottlenecks for unstructured data with FlashBlade

In the age of applications where design, simulation, visualization and interpretation can all be performed digitally on high-powered servers and networks, eliminating the storage bottleneck has become an imperative for high performance computing users.

What’s needed is a new, innovative storage architecture to support advanced applications while providing best-of-breed performance in all dimensions of concurrency – including IOPS, throughput, latency, and capacity – while offering breakthrough levels of density. The FlashBlade solution is an elastic scale-out system that delivers all-flash performance to petabyte-scale data sets, ideal for big data analytics. Watch this webinar to learn more.
