Scality provides customers like Orange and SFR, Dailymotion, TF1 and RTL, who serve 300 million users worldwide, a software that provides highly reliable and efficient storage solutions at lower cost.
“Scality provides software for storing astronomical amounts of data reliably and efficiently, at lower cost.”
“The cloud revolution is as important as the Internet revolution itself,” says Jérôme Lecat, CEO at Scality. “Twenty years ago, you probably were not as ‘connected’ as you are today, can you even imagine your business without Internet? Twenty years from now, most companies will subscribe to multiple cloud services, which will constitute most of their IT resources. However, CAC 40* companies, including media, research, and the Web will continue to operate their IT themselves.”
“These companies will have their own infrastructure, but these will be very different from what they are today,” says Jérôme Lecat. “They will look like Google, Amazon or Facebook’s: rows and rows of racks of standard, commodity servers. For these companies, Scality provides software for storing astronomical amounts of data reliably and efficiently, at lower cost.”
Scality’s approach is revolutionary in the world of computer storage. Instead of systems based on dedicated hardware (SAN and NAS) – too expensive and complicated to use for large volumes of information – Scality customers are free to use the hardware of their choice, and thus benefit from innovative, faster hardware, while reducing their costs. “The application of our first customer, Telenet in Belgium, serves two million subscribers and has never stopped since 2010,” said Jerome Lecat. With a year over year growth of over 200%, Scality keeps recruiting to further accelerate its growth.
