Scality Named a Leader
San Francisco, CA – October 22, 2018
Scality™, leader in software for distributed file and object storage and multi-cloud data control, today announced that it has, once again, been recognized by Gartner, Inc. as a Leader in the 2018 Magic Quadrant for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage1. Scality was one of 16 companies evaluated for the report, each of which was analyzed across a comprehensive set of capabilities including the ability to execute and completeness of vision.
Gartner notes that “Vendors in the Leaders quadrant have the highest scores for their Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision. A vendor in the Leaders quadrant has the market share, credibility, and marketing and sales capabilities needed to drive the acceptance of new technologies. Market leaders will typically be able to execute strongly across multiple geographies with products that cover both distributed file systems and object storage offerings. They will also have consistent financial performance, broad platform support and flexible deployment models.”
“We believe that Scality’s leadership position in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for File Systems and Object Storage for three consecutive years now is a very strong validation of the power of the Scality RING software-defined storage platform and the value that it brings to our customers across a wide range of applications, requirements and environments,” said Jérôme Lecat, Scality’s CEO. “We take a long view, and we see huge value in having a broad-based strategy to give data owners what they need to derive the optimal value from their data. That means solid object-based storage capabilities, with native file capabilities to broaden the utility, and multi-cloud support, so that customers can leverage storage and compute resources across the broad range of cloud and on-premises options with no data lock-in.”
