San Francisco, CA – June 28, 2018 Scality, leader in software for distributed file and object storage and multi-cloud data control, today announced that the new IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Object-Based Storage 2018 Vendor Assessment places Scality in the leader category once again.
IDC MarketScape criteria selection, weightings, and vendor scores represent well-researched IDC judgment about the market and specific vendors. IDC analysts tailor the range of standard characteristics by which vendors are measured through structured discussions, surveys, and interviews with market leaders, participants, and end users. Market weightings are based on user interviews, buyer surveys, and the input of IDC experts in each market. IDC analysts base individual vendor scores, and ultimately vendor positions on the IDC MarketScape, on detailed surveys and interviews with the vendors, publicly available information, and end-user experiences in an effort to provide an accurate and consistent assessment of each vendor’s characteristics, behavior, and capability.
“We’re proud of our leadership in object-based storage, and of the fact that IDC is recognizing that leadership in both capabilities and strategies,” said Jerome Lecat, Scality’s CEO. “We take a long view, and we do see the value of 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 options with no data lock-in.”
