It’s everyone’s dream to be rid of it for good. Well, it’s time to break out the champagne—because zero downtime just became a reality. No misprint here: It gives.

Since its creation in 2009, the French-American company has become the leader in software-defined storage and helps business manage massive amounts of data. “Our customers have thousands of hard drives and servers, and our job is to ensure that the data is reliably and securely stored there,” Lecat says. – Good Morning Business of Tuesday, October 13, 2015, interviewed by Stéphane Soumier on BFM Business.

Scality, le pionnier du stockage de données à grande échelle: Jérôme Lecat – 13/10 Jérôme Lecat, PDG de Scality, a expliqué les missions et les activités de son entreprise. Depuis sa création en 2009, cette société franco-américaine est devenue le leader dans le secteur du stockage à très grande échelle des données informatiques.

Interview by Chris Mellor With IBM buying Cleversafe, one of the two leading object storage startups, and the other being Scality, we asked Scality CEO Jerome Lecat half a dozen questions about the potential impact of this acquisition. El Reg: Does this imply that the shared storage model (Spectrum Scale aka GPFS) for hyper-scale storage is not sufficient? Jerome Lecat: There are many limitations as the shared storage model (Spectrum Scale aka GPFS) for hyper-scale storage is not based on an object architecture; namely, inodes, raw capacity of file system storage, etc. That type of model simply cannot scale as.
Partners say a Dell acquisition of EMC would rattle Cisco’s cage, forcing the networking giant to go hunting for an immediate storage acquisition. “They’re going to have to have a storage solution after they admitted Invicta was dead,” said a top executive solution provider and Cisco partner ranked on the CRN 2015 Solution Provider 500 list, who declined to be named. “If Dell buys EMC, Cisco seriously has got to do something.” Click here for the full article
IBM is planning to acquire CleverSafe, HGST bought Amplidata a while ago, and RedHat did the same with Ceph 18 months ago. If you put this information alongside the fact that disk shipments are doing very well, even when compared with Flash, it’s no wonder object storage is so hot right now. Scality is really focused on its growth now (targeting an IPO for 2017). It’s one of the best, and very scalable, object storage solutions out there and it is doing pretty well with RING, its product, sold as scale-out NAS (counting for 40 per cent of its sales)..
The storage market is still feeling the effects of a shake-up as new technologies come to the fore and legacy players scramble to avoid obsolescence. With SANs, NAS and DAS on the decline, flash offerings, converged infrastructures, cloud and software-defined storage (SDS) are making their marks, spawning an array of ambitious start-ups and forcing the hands of vendors that have relied on the technologies of yesteryear to turn a profit. For end users, many of which are juggling multiple storage types and attempting to strike a balance between old and new, the solution provider community’s expertise will prove invaluable in.
The prerequisite to tapping the vast amounts of data coming off the connected universe is an economic way to store that information while the analysis performed, which is what earned a startup called Scality Inc. $45 million in funding last week. The investment caps off two years of tremendous growth that saw sales of its storage platform more than quadruple. The software decouples capacity and management operations from the underlying hardware, allowing organizations to use cheap off-the-shelf equipment for their environments to lower costs. Scality claims that this allows its platform to efficiently accommodate up to petabytes of data with.
Jerome Lecat wasn’t necessarily looking to start a new company in 2008... But in talking to customers, the French entrepreneur kept hearing a similar story: a new need for vast data storage capabilities that only giants such as Google could provide, at high cost.
