Scality Allows You to Store and Access Billions of Objects or Even Petabyte-sized Objects Across Standard x86 Hardware to Meet the Most Demanding Digital Business, Cloud and Application Requirements SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — @Scality, a pioneer of #softwaredefined, #multicloud #datastorage, today announced that it has been recognized by @Gartner, Inc. as a leader in the 2017 #MagicQuadrant for #DistributedFileSystems and #ObjectStorage [1]. Scality was one of 15 companies evaluated for the report. Each vendor was analyzed across a comprehensive set of capabilities including the ability to execute and completeness of vision. Scality is the only independent vendor to be named in the Leaders quadrant. Gartner notes, “Vendors in the Leaders quadrant have the highest scores for their ability to execute and completeness of vision. A vendor in the Leaders quadrant has the market share, credibility, and marketing and sales capabilities needed to drive the acceptance of new technologies. Market Leaders will typically be able to execute strongly across multiple geographies with products that cover both distributed file systems and object storage offerings. They also have consistent financial performance, broad platform support and flexible deployments models.” Software-defined Scality RING object storage turns any standard x86 servers into web-scale storage. It scales without limits and guarantees 100 percent reliability—all while reducing cost by as much as 90 percent compared to legacy systems. According to Gartner, “the vendors in this market for distributed file systems and object storage are offering mixed deployment options to give customers choices in how they deploy infrastructure. Common deployment options include turnkey appliances or software-only option that can be deployed either on bare-metal industry-standard hardware as virtual machines or on Docker containers. Increasingly, vendors in this market are offering their products as software-defined storage pre-certified to run on x86 industry-standard hardware.” “We believe that Scality’s distinction in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for File Systems and Object Storage for two consecutive years is a strong validation of the power of the Scality RING object storage platform and the value it brings to our customers across wide-ranging vertical market environments,” said Jérôme Lecat, CEO at Scality. “We are especially proud of our progression further along the ‘Completeness of Vision’ axis, which, in our opinion, is testament to the strength of our groundbreaking product and cloud storage technology portfolios.”
