San Francisco, CA – August 8, 2018
Scality, leader in software solutions for distributed file and object storage and multi-cloud data control, today announced that it has created the new role of Field CTO to help customers and prospects navigate the challenges of managing information at petabyte-to-exabyte scale, and brought on Greg DiFraia, a storage industry veteran and acknowledged expert, to fill the important role.
Previously with Dell EMC, most recently in the role of CTO, Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS), DiFraia led the global sales strategy for the ECS software-defined storage platform.

Between that and the solid software-defined storage RING–and the accolades Scality is getting from analysts–it was clear that it was time.
