NIFTY Corporation reduces costs and operation workload of large scale Cloud storage with ETERNUS CD10000

"Fujitsu ETERNUS CD10000 S2 system architecture maximizes the advantage of erasure coding for CRUSH algorithm and redundancy."

Ken Kobayashi Cloud Platform Department, Cloud Business Division, NIFTY Corporation

Customer

Nifty Corporation has been pioneering in the internet community. It started the ‘Nifty cloud object storage’ service in June 2016 providing unlimited capacity and five Japanese yen per GB to respond to IoT demands. ‘Nifty cloud object storage’ provides a low cost service by having the Nifty account. The on-demand service is immediately available after log-in. It provides a flexible service when developers urgently require resource for verification. It is suitable for big data storage and also for small start testing.

Challenge

  • To improve stability, availability and quality of large scale cloud storage with OSS
  • To have low cost storage service for IoT era
  • To reduce operation workload of large scale cloud storage

Solution

Selected FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS CD10000 S2 with OSS distributed storage system Ceph for its service infrastructure. Ceph’s Controlled Replication Under Scalable Hashing (CRUSH) algorithm and erasure coding1 improves stable operation and availability.

Benefit

  • Ceph’s CRUSH algorithm and erasure coding improves stability and availability
  • Expand ETERNUS CD10000 S2 usage, not limiting to API’s object access or Nifty cloud service infrastructure, will give five yen per GB service
  • ETERNUS CD10000 S2 reduces workload of patch and major version optimization, creating extra time for user’s developing work
