San Francisco, CA – May 19th, 2011 – Cloud storage system pioneer Scality today announced it was named one of the Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors by Everything Channel’s CRN. The comprehensive list highlights the most innovative cloud vendors and solutions for the channel – including storage cloud offerings, security cloud offerings, cloud apps, cloud infrastructure and cloud platforms to assist solution providers in navigating the cloud phenomena successfully.
“This year’s Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list is based on a cloud vendor’s approach to creating an innovative product, or an innovative approach to supporting solution providers in the IT channel,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President and Editorial Director CRN. “Specifically, these Cloud vendors help resellers transform themselves into true service providers and help organizations and enterprises take advantage of the ease, flexibility, scalability, elasticity and cost savings that leveraging cloud computing has to offer.”
Scality’s object-based cloud storage system, Scality RING, eliminates the need for manual intervention and management, reduces migration and infrastructure costs, replenishes itself automatically, and scales effortlessly and limitlessly. Its self-healing architecture is composed of a series of nodes that rebalance themselves automatically without any intervention. The platform grows along with users’ evolving storage requirements, allowing new servers to be added while the application remains fully functional. When a server dies, absolutely no manual intervention is required.
Jérôme Lecat, CEO of Scality, said, “Scality was created to address the pain points service providers faced as they attempted to manage their growth profitably and efficiently. Our partnerships with the channel are key to our growth as we address these issues with them. Scality’s inclusion on CRN’s list of the Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors is a very welcome acknowledgement of our – and many of our partners’ – dedication to providing scalable, inexpensive and high-performance cloud storage.”
