Scality has announced that LAKE Solutions, a leading cloud service provider in Switzerland, has deployed Scality RING to power a new Backup-as-a-Service offering, providing its customers with a reliable and secure infrastructure with cloud-like economics. LAKE can now assure customers that their data is both available and compliant with local data protection regulations.
LAKE deployed Scality RING storage clouds built on Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Apollo 4000 Systems delivered with the HPE GreenLake-as-a-Service consumption model. Thanks to this flexible storage platform and consumption-based pricing model, the company upgraded its backup offering with the long-term objective of expanding service offerings to customers. This flexibility allows LAKE to respond to demand surges much faster than it could in the past and helps handle the uncertainty in customer usage peaks more efficiently and cost-effectively. The new solution enables LAKE’s customers to back up to the cloud with just about any backup software on the market.
“With Scality RING and HPE Apollo 4000 Systems, we are able to scale disk by disk instead of needing to add entire nodes as with traditional infrastructures,” explains Roger Schellenbaum, Head of Cloud Infrastructure at LAKE. “As our customers grow their backup requirements, we can accommodate them at a very granular level, which is more cost-effective for them and for us.”Click below to share this article
