Microsoft Azure is an ever-expanding set of cloud services to help your organization meet your business challenges.
Scality and Azure
Powering hybrid cloud.
Scality complements Azure cloud services and enables a new generation of hybrid cloud data management solutions:
- BlobServer for scale-out storage to extend Azure edge solutions
- RING XDM and Zenko for hybrid cloud data use cases
- Zenko Connect for Amazon S3 to Azure Blob API translation
for scale-out storage to extend Azure edge solutions
Azure Stack Hub and Azure Stack Edge are on-premises extensions of Azure that allow enterprises to consistently build and run hybrid applications across cloud boundaries.
When these applications require petabyte-scale storage, especially in a disconnected or air gapped deployment, Scality BlobServer allows customers to augment Azure’s edge solutions with on-premises, scale-out storage and data orchestration capabilities.
Scality XDM and Zenko
for hybrid cloud data management
As Scality’s customers incorporate more and more public cloud services into their IT operations, they are implementing hybrid cloud data management use cases including:
- Archiving: transitioning on-premises data to cheap cloud storage for long-term archive and data retention.
- Disaster Recovery: maintaining a copy of on-premises data in the cloud for business continuity.
- Service Bursting: replicating a subset of on-premises data to the cloud to leverage any number of value added cloud services from compute or IaaS to artificial intelligence or machine learning services.
FOR AMAZON S3 TO AZURE BLOB API TRANSLATION
As a subset of Scality Zenko, Zenko Connect provides a stepping stone into a multi-cloud world by enabling you to immediately consume Azure Blob Storage with your proven Amazon S3 applications without any application modifications.
Zenko Connect runs as a stateless container within your Azure subscription, providing scale-out performance and advanced security innovations as data never leaves your control. Zenko Connect stores data in Azure native format so you can access your data with any Azure cloud service such as Azure Machine Learning, Microsoft Power BI toolsets, Video Indexer, and more.
This deployment model and the architecture drive a number of key benefits:
- Fast and easy deployment through a few clicks in the Marketplace
- Amazon S3 API compatible for Bucket, Objects and Multi-Part Upload operations
- Stateless architecture enables scale-out performance, load balancing and failover
- Data stored in Azure Blob Storage is in native Container and Blob format, so it can be accessed directly from other Azure applications and services.
THIS IS HOW TO AVOID BAD MISTAKES USING AZURE AND AMAZON STORAGE API
It’s easy to make mistakes when developing multi-cloud applications, even when only dealing with object storage API.
