San Francisco, CA – August 2nd, 2016
Scality, the world leader in object storage, announced that it is now a Preferred Solution Partner within the Cisco® Solution Partner Program. The Internet of Everything (IoE) continues to bring together people, processes, data, and things to enhance the relevancy of network connections. As a member of the Cisco Solution Partner Program, Scality is able to quickly create and deploy solutions to enhance the capabilities, performance, and management of the network to capture value in the IoE.
Scality and Cisco offer a petabyte-scale storage solution that provides the optimal level of reliability and performance for mission-critical production environments. And because the Scality RING can run on any standard x86 servers powered by Linux, customers have the option to deploy Scality’s hardware agnostic RING software on any of Cisco’s UCS® servers to create a flexible, customizable, and always-available storage environment. The Cisco UCS C-Series delivers unified computing in an industry-standard form factor to increase agility and reduce total cost of ownership, while Scality’s software enables a dynamic infrastructure that allows Enterprises and Service Providers to maximize the value of the hardware they use, and efficiently scale to their storage needs. As part of the interoperability testing required to receive Cisco’s Preferred Partner status Scality focused on the UCS C240, C3160, and C3260 server models.
“Cisco’s strong networking background and growing presence in the server market made the company an attractive partner for Scality. Our enterprise customers now have the flexibility to deploy our RING software on any Cisco server they choose, with the support of a trusted hardware provider,” said Erwan Menard, President and COO of Scality. “Together with Cisco, we are driving enterprise adoption of a scalable, reliable storage solution to support the backbone of the digital economy.”
The Cisco Solution Partner Program, part of the Cisco Partner Ecosystem, unites Cisco with third-party independent hardware and software vendors to deliver integrated solutions to joint customers. As a Preferred Solution Partner, Scality has achieved Cisco compatibility certification on at least one solution and can provide its customers with 24-hour, 7-days-a-week customer support.
