Advancing sustainable tech with open source
Scality believes that collaboration is the best way to advance software technology. Sustainable, open-source innovation drives our progress — we use and contribute code to build core functionality right into our products. Scality aims to be a fair, balanced and committed contributor. Our design principles value openness, and we strive to connect the open-source and enterprise worlds.
Since our founding in 2010, we’ve remained committed to open communities and development — sharing knowledge and contributing to OpenStack, Kubernetes, COSI and more. We are active members of the CNCF and SODA Foundation.
When object storage was in its infancy, we were one of the first adopters of S3 with an open-source project called Droplet, a client C library implementing object storage APIs. We also supported OpenStack with contributions to Cinder and Swift. This marked our entry into the open community, and we haven’t stopped since.
Most recently, Zenko, our open-source data management software, was accepted as a SODA Foundation EcoProject. Linux developers can now use Zenko with the confidence of support from industry-standards organizations such as SODA and the Linux Foundation.
Nicolas Trangez, principal architect at Scality, presents the use of Kubernetes in Scality storage products, the company's experience with Kubernetes and other cloud-native technologies, plus examples of open-source projects Scality launched to deploy Kubernetes on-premises to run an enterprise-grade storage system.
