SNW, Santa Clara, CA—April 5, 2011
Scality, Cloud storage system pioneer, Scality and CTERA Networks (www.ctera.com), an innovator in hybrid cloud storage and data protection, today announced their partnership to create a new, integrated offering for distributed enterprises and cloud storage service providers. The new partnership ensures customers can rapidly launch scalable cloud-based storage and data protection services with a low total cost of ownership and zero service interruption.
“This integration gives new and existing Scality customers the opportunity to run managed data protection services with CTERA’s hybrid appliances, underpinned by Scality’s massively scalable, high performance and cost-effective RING storage platform,” said Jérôme Lecat, CEO of Scality.
“We are committed to making the CTERA Portal an open-ended platform that empowers service providers and distributed enterprise storage services, based on scalable platforms such as Scality RING,” said Liran Eshel, CEO and co-founder of CTERA Networks. “The combination of Scality and CTERA is helping service providers drive revenues through new, high-margin services, while optimally managing costs and growth.”
Scality RING software is an object-based, cloud storage solution with a vast—and growing—worldwide network of enterprise customers and Storage-as-a-Service providers. Customers of both companies can now take advantage of Scality RING technology as a storage foundation with zero service interruptions and CTERA’s hybrid cloud storage and data protection.
Today, Scality’s cloud storage system is used by service providers to deploy Storage-as-a-Service offerings, by email providers to store emails for millions of users, and by web service providers managing billions of files with very high performance expectations, either for Web 2.0 or business applications.
