Solutions for cloud service providers

Expand your offerings and delight customers with smart, simple data management at scale

Service Providers

Cloud service providers face both challenges and opportunities from the ongoing digital transformation of their enterprise customers. Enterprise transformation creates a need for new IT services, centered on extracting value from the critical asset of the 21st-century enterprise: data.

Data-rich services require cloud service providers to support cloud-native application infrastructures to manage and analyze the big data needed by enterprises. Cloud service providers can leverage this opportunity to differentiate themselves from hyperscaler public cloud vendors and thrive in this new data-driven era.

Scaling for massive data growth

An increasing variety of data-rich apps are increasing pressure on cloud service providers to scale data bandwidth through the emergence of 5G — and to deliver data anywhere, anytime. Cloud service providers need to be ready for massive growth of storage capacities, with always-on infrastructures that provide economies of scale and ROI for customers.

Adding value in a multi-cloud world

Public clouds from AWS, Azure and Google provide a compelling array of services for enterprise customers. This competitive force has caused cloud service providers to evaluate how to best add value to these services.

The world of hybrid and multi-cloud application and data management offers opportunities for cloud service providers to introduce new services for multi-cloud data governance, providing compelling value to enterprise customers.

Cloud service pain points

  • Enablement of new services

    Cloud service providers must support enterprise customers as they transform into digital businesses with cloud-native apps and always-on requirements for use cases in AI/ML, big data analytics and edge computing.
  • Massive growth

    New content-driven apps generate massive amounts of data that must be securely stored and managed by cloud service providers.
  • Security

    The explosion of new services requires cloud service providers to securely aggregate customer apps and data in a multi-tenant manner.
  • Continuity of service

    Broken services and processes cost cloud service providers immense sums for regulatory noncompliance, reputational damage, unplanned capex, massive opex and lost opportunities.
  • High infrastructure cost

    It's challenging to achieve economies of scale in public clouds, while maintaining enterprise service levels, security and continuous availability.
  • Hyper-scaler clouds

    AWS, Azure, Google and others provide rich services that are hard to match. How can cloud service providers add value?

Scality solutions for cloud service providers offer:

Easy integration

For new data-driven services, Scality provides solutions for big data storage and management through modern object-based RESTful APIs, with comprehensive support of the popular Amazon S3 API as well as AWS compatible multi-tenancy.

Boundless scalability

Scality supports growth of big data to dozens of petabytes and beyond. Scale out seamlessly as your performance and capacity needs grow  — without downtime or disruption of access.

 

Acting as a single, distributed system, the RING scales limitlessly and linearly across thousands of servers, multiple sites, and an unlimited number of objects.

Unbreakable, enterprise-grade security

Scality supports regulatory requirements for privacy and security with secure multi-tenancy with AWS compatible identity and access management (IAM) signature v4 authentication, access control and industry-standard AES256 encryption.

 

To support customers’ needs for ransomware protection,Scality RING and ARTESCA offer data immutability support enabled by the Amazon S3 Object Lock API.  This defense renders data impervious to attacks by preventing it from being deleted or overwritten for a period of time (or indefinitely).

 

Assured data continuity

Scality enables 100% availability — during hardware failures, software upgrades, and capacity expansion (even across hardware generations).

Economies of scale

For maximum compatibility and cost-savings, Scality software is designed for deployment on industry-standard x64 server platform hardware, disk drives and standard IP networks. By riding on the declining cost of commodity hardware, the cost of ownership is minimized.

 

Unlike conventional storage, our design enables worry-free capacity expansion to any level of capacity and performance. A single growing pool of storage helps cloud service providers simplify management and reduce storage silos.
