Company to Present Research Report that Forecasts Massive Storage Industry Disruption Driven by Software Defined Storage
Scality, the leader in software-defined storage (SDS) at petabyte-scale, had another record quarter in Q3, equalling all bookings in 2013. Scality’s accelerating success was driven by growth in new markets, for example the Media industry’s adoption of Scality for video archiving and video distribution.
Scality also announced earlier today a major global distribution agreement with HP. HP is the leading server manufacturer, with 26.5% of the worldwide server market according to IDC.[i] Reselling Scality will enable HP to compete more efficiently in the growing Software Defined Storage space, leveraging their SL4500 and DL380/360 product lines.
The IT industry is on the verge of a significant shift, coined the “Web-Scale Singularity” by Gartner. In data storage, this translates into the disruption of traditional storage appliances from the likes of EMC and netapp by a software-based approach. Leveraging research from all major analysts and internal analysis, Scality found the total addressable market (TAM) for the company’s software will be more than $5 billion by 2020. Key findings and trends addressed in the State of the IT Storage Industry report include:
Building for this redefined industry landscape, Scality is launching a new brand and website today. The new Scality logo represents a new stage of the company, and a steadfast commitment to six constituents: customers, partners, employees, shareholders, technology and social responsibility.
