Scality announced that Scality RING scored second in all product scores across every use case in the latest Gartner Critical Capabilities for Object Storage report that was released on 25th January 2018, maintaining and even improving its position in the growing object storage market over the past year.
For the report, Gartner analysts evaluated thirteen object storage products against eight critical capabilities: capacity, storage efficiency, interoperability, manageability, performance, resilience, security and multitenancy, and value, across five object storage use cases.
"We're truly pleased to see Scality consistently scored in second place for all product scores across every use case," said Jerome Lecat, Scality's CEO. "We feel that our focus and our strong, loyal and growing customer base across the very use cases that Gartner elected to evaluate speaks to our leadership, as do the results expressed in Gartner Critical Capabilities for Object Storage."
Scality RING’s software-defined object storage can turn any standard x86 server into highly expandable storage. It scales without limits and guarantees 100 percent availability—all while reducing cost by as much as 90 percent compared to legacy systems. Scality RING is deployed by more than 185 petabyte-scale customers around the world. It features native file protocols and high-fidelity AWS S3 API, data encryption, volume and bucket data protection, data-restorative versioning, extended location control for data sovereignty, and geo-replication for disaster recovery for customers requiring ironclad data protection. In addition, Scality RING scales easily and without disruption, beyond hundreds of petabytes, so will continue to grow with customers' data.
Scality was also placed in the Leaders quadrant of Gartner's "Magic Quadrant for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage" for the second year in a row.
