Scality RING 7.4 Takes Top Honors in the 2018 Software-Defined Storage Category
San Francisco, CA – Novemeber 14, 2018

Scality, leader in software for distributed file and object storage and multi-cloud data control, announced today that CRN,® a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized the company’s RING 7.4 with a 2018 CRN Tech Innovator Award. These annual awards honor stand-out hardware, software and services that are moving the IT industry forward. In compiling the 2018 Tech Innovator Award list, CRN editors evaluated 300 products across 34 technology categories using several criteria, including technological advancements, uniqueness of features and potential to help solution providers solve end users’ IT challenges. Scality RING software-defined storage took top honors in the Storage – Software-Defined category.

Scality RING software turns any standard x86 servers into flexible, web-scale storage that can accommodate a variety of workloads across multiple use cases, thanks to its ability to store data from legacy file systems or object storage interfaces – both, natively. That universality gives resellers a way to sell,  support and build services around a single storage pool to meet all of their customers’ unstructured data needs.  Focused on making the best even better for channel partners, Scality RING 7.4 streamlines end-to-end deployment and provides unified operation monitoring and management, integrated service provisioning and secure data access, and extensive data management opportunities.   Scality RING stores data without limits, with incredible efficiency and 100% reliability, guaranteed—all while reducing costs by as much as 90% over legacy systems.

“Scality RING enables channel partners to engage with prospects by starting a conversation around their overall digital transformation journeys,” said Michelle Rockler, Scality’s VP of Global Alliances.  “Its broad utility across the multitude of applications that businesses are using today makes for a great opener to discussion of a broad range of promising opportunities all across the customer’s IT infrastructure.   And for RING 7.4, Scality focused on improvements that enhance its value to resellers—features that provide opportunities for use case optimization and data management that enhance revenue and and strengthen ‘trusted advisor’ status.” 

“Each year, the CRN Tech Innovator Awards recognize technology vendor offerings that are reshaping the IT channel landscape by increasing worker productivity, reducing cost, and minimizing complexity for solution providers, IT departments, and end users,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The winners in this year’s awards bring breakthrough ideas to the table for solution providers and their customers, in areas ranging from cloud to security to business intelligence to IoT. We congratulate all the winners and look forward to their future endeavors.”

The Tech Innovator Awards will be featured in the December issue of CRN and can be viewed online at crn.com/techinnovators.
