San Francisco, CA – November 28, 2016

Scality, world leader in object and cloud storage, announced the release of Scality RING 6.4 which includes extended security features providing a trusted, compliant and secure storage infrastructure for today’s digital business.

“Data is a business critical asset but we are increasingly seeing more data breaches, security attacks and malware threats on businesses,” said Giorgio Regni, CTO at Scality. “Organizations today need to reduce risk, assure compliance, securely store data and implement strict access controls and governance. We designed Scality RING 6.4 to be the most secure Object Storage ever built.”

The new release includes new security features for data protection, network security and user management and access control. Key features include:

  • Encryption at rest, with integration in customer’s key management service (KMS)
  • Extension of the S3 IAM model to deliver secure multi-tenancy and granular access control
  • Integration with AWS REST and native tools for user management
  • Support for groups and access control policies
  • Extended single-sign-on capabilities to support temporary credential leasing and expiration
  • Support for S3 based bucket and object versioning to support compliance
  • Disaster Recovery Mode providing business continuance even in the event of a datacenter failure and simultaneous component (disk or server) failures in the remaining datacenter

Scality RING 6.4 also includes operational enterprise features prioritized by our existing customers. System monitoring now includes component-level API probes, health-status checks, integrated metadata backup/restore, hot-standby and recovery for multi-site S3. Integrated billing and chargeback RESTful APIs include metrics such as storage capacity, number of objects, bandwidth and operations per time unit. RING 6.4 continues delivering the exceptional performance which RING customers have been accustomed to, showing 10x improvement when compared with other object storage solutions. Also, with this release, Scality provides the S3 Server Open Source version through the Amazon AWS Marketplace.

“Scality has put the S3 API at the core of its connector strategy,” said Regni. “For the storage of unstructured data at scale, we see the world moving towards object storage, whether in private clouds or public clouds. The S3 API is the de-facto standard interface for cloud storage. The value that we bring is not so much in the API itself, but in delivering the API in a way that is respectful of the needs of Enterprise IT”.

Scality is now a Partner in AWS’s APN program, recognizing that Enterprise customers are looking for a multi-cloud strategy, encompassing both on-premise and public cloud storage solutions that are compatible with one another.
