Cloud telephone system operator chooses LizardFS
By: LizardFS Inc.
NFON chose LizardFS as it provided Geo-Replication across all data centers, allowing for even a whole data center to go down and all data would still be accessible without affecting business.
"After testing a few candidates we were convinced by the speed and especially the uraft component for high availability"
Markus Stumpf shared further reasons why they chose LizardFS "We were impressed by the stability and fault tolerance LizardFS provided in our tests. The cluster setup was quite easily integrated in our configuration management, too. Another cluster, for a different purpose, was set up within minutes."
Szymon Haly, CEO of LizardFS mentioned the core goal of the company:"We at LizardFS Inc aim to deliver the best SDS. We know even when we reach our current objective, we will not stop. The world of data never stands still."
In a cloud environment where heavy workloads are distributed over many nodes and data centers LizardFS provides the ability for all the data to be available in real time, reliably, fault tolerant and shows as a local file system. Complexity is one of the factors that needs to be kept at minimum.
"Another feature we were looking for was quick and easy integration in our existing tool sets, so we preferred a filesystem over other technologies like document stores." confirmed Markus Stumpf.
With yet another Telecom company onboard LizardFS is on the way to become a standard for the industry. It also shows that the open source data storage trend is continuing to grow.
