“I would have never thought that ten years could go so fast! We created Scality, convinced that Global 2000 enterprises, cloud providers and governments would need access to cloud technologies to deliver best in class service to their customers and citizens. That was ten years ago, and it is now a reality. We continue to help them scale data with cost-effective, highly-reliable solutions, and our software serves hundreds of millions of people around the world. Our customers are doing amazing--and diverse--things with high-value data: providing personalised services in airports and sports arenas; leveraging healthcare data, whether patient data for treatment today, or genomics and pharmaceutical data research for the future; optimising news and entertainment media processing and distribution, and much more,” said Jérôme Lecat, Scality’s founder and CEO. “We understand the value of that data, and bring cutting-edge solutions for the complex data orchestration that has to take place as organisations break silos at the same time that they are deploying and leveraging a mix of their own on-premises private clouds and use services in public clouds, as well as in key regional and specialised clouds. We believe in continuous improvement, and the new features in RING8 respond to evolving customer needs--the kind that affect their success.”
RING8 was developed to solve the complexities that come with today’s growing hybrid cloud data trends driven by edge computing. The increase in enterprise and public clouds for core workloads, and the proliferation of data generation and use at the edge drive ever more complex data management challenges. These challenges demand proven solutions to store, govern and orchestrate massive volumes of data across geographies and clouds.
Scality’s next-generation software-defined storage, RING8, brings key enhancements that are critical to managing valuable data in today's distributed data world:
