Scality’s distinction in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for File Systems and Object Storage for two consecutive years is a strong validation of the power of the Scality RING object storage platform and the value it brings to our customers across wide-ranging vertical market environments. Our advancement further into the “Completeness of Vision” and “Innovator” categories is testament to the strength of our groundbreaking product and cloud and object storage technology portfolios.

Gartner notes, “Vendors in the Leaders quadrant have the highest scores for their ability to execute and completeness of vision. A vendor in the Leaders quadrant has the market share, credibility, and marketing and sales capabilities needed to drive the acceptance of new technologies. Market Leaders will typically be able to execute strongly across multiple geographies with products that cover both distributed file systems and object storage offerings. They also have consistent financial performance, broad platform support and flexible deployments models.”
