Scality RING received the highest scores for the Hybrid Cloud Storage Use Case , and the second highest scores for each of the other four use cases: Analytics, Archiving, Backup, and Cloud Storage. And, to us, it’s significant to note that Scality shows to be the top scoring independent vendor across all five of the use cases.
For the report, Garner analysts Raj Bala and Julia Palmer evaluated 13 object storage products against eight critical capabilities:
- Storage Efficiency
- Security and Multitenancy
and five use cases:
- Cloud Storage
- Hybrid Cloud Storage
Scality RING scored extremely well across all critical capabilities and use cases, in every case scoring above 4 out of 5.
According to the report, Critical Capabilities for Object Storage (ID: G00352191) published on January 30, 2019, “Cost reduction is driving enterprise interest in on-premises object storage; however, compelling hybrid cloud storage capabilities also attract attention.”
