Scality announced that ownCloud has tested and certified Scality's Zenko CloudServer for use with ownCloud. An Amazon S3-compatible object storage server that lets you build and integrate apps faster and store data anywhere, Zenko CloudServer compatibility with ownCloud Server means that Scality RING Software-Defined Storage, and other applications that use the Zenko CloudServer API, can serve as certified storage back-ends for ownCloud.
ownCloud certified Scality Zenko CloudServer for object- and file-based storage in conjunction with ownCloud Server (version 10.0.9 or newer). "We're pleased to have completed this certification process so that we can now provide our joint Scality/ownCloud customers with support that we can stand behind to meet our customers' SLA's," said Felix Böhm, CTO of ownCloud. "This certification is inherited by all Scality products that leverage its open source CloudServer API, including Scality RING Software-Defined Storage."
The core of Zenko, Scality S3 Server is now Zenko CloudServer, a key component of Scality's open-source multi-cloud data controller. With Zenko CloudServer, developers gain a single unifying API and access layer for data wherever it's stored: on-premises or in the public cloud with AWS S3, Microsoft Azure Blob Storage and many others (Google Cloud Storage coming soon). Zenko CloudServer enables on-premises Amazon S3-based application development and data deployment choice, providing a single Amazon S3 API set and 360° access to any cloud.
