SAN FRANCISCO – April 27, 2021 – Scality® today introduced ARTESCA, the lightweight, true enterprise-grade, cloud-native object storage solution designed for the needs of the Kubernetes era. ARTESCA’s modern approach, built on Scality’s 10 years of experience serving the most demanding enterprises on the planet, delivers the speed and reliability required by emerging workloads. Supported immediately on a broad portfolio of HPE all-flash and hybrid intelligent data storage servers, ARTESCA addresses multiple use cases, from the edge to the core to the cloud, especially in cloud-native, AI/ML, big data analytics and in-memory applications.

Increasingly, object storage is deployed on flash-based systems and is now becoming the primary storage for modern applications. The cloud-native environment demands adaptability, portability and efficiency —attributes that traditional storage solutions struggle to match. ARTESCA is the industry’s first solution of its kind, purpose-built for developers while meeting the security demands of the enterprise.  

With ARTESCA, application owners and DevOps staff can easily manage persistent data storage infrastructures from anywhere, without being forced into becoming storage experts. Unlike other storage solutions on the market, ARTESCA is:

  • Lightweight: ARTESCA is easy to install, doesn’t require any Linux skills and can start out as small as a single server and scale out.
  • True enterprise-grade: ARTESCA is adaptive and sustainable across future platforms and technology innovations. A single pane of glass view enables control of multicloud data, workflow management, API and user-driven metadata search, and comprehensive storage analytics. Dual-layer erasure coding with minimum overhead ensures superior data protection.  
  • Cloud-native: ARTESCA powers an app-centric, cloud-native, modern world by supporting multiple Kubernetes distributions and bare metal servers from edge-to-core/core-to-edge or on-premises to public cloud.
  • Modern object storage: Fast application-centric primary storage for new or emerging workloads delivers high performance with ultra-low latency and 10s of GB/s of throughput to meet the needs of AI/ML, big data analytics and edge applications. It is entirely API-driven, so operations can be fully automated. 

Scality is offering ARTESCA through a public cloud-inspired procurement model, with one, three and five-year subscriptions available, starting at $3,800 per year including 24×7 enterprise support. ARTESCA is available on the HPE portfolio through a six-month exclusive agreement and is also available as a cloud service through HPE GreenLake. Contact Scality and HPE sales representatives for availability.

“We are excited by what the new enterprise-grade yet lightweight object storage and data management solution co-designed by Scality and HPE can do for our joint customers. Combined with a new portfolio of six purposefully configured HPE systems, ARTESCA software empowers customers with an application-centric, developer-friendly, and cloud-first platform with which to store, access, and manage data for their cloud-native apps no matter where it lives — in the data center, at the edge, and in public cloud.”
