Company Begins 2017 as a Recognized Market Leader and Top-50 Workplace with Strong S3-focused Growth and Key Security Optimization Products for Enterprise Clouds
San Francisco, CA – March 2, 2017 Scality, world leader in object and cloud storage, announces that it ended 2016 with 85 percent year-over-year revenue growth with Q4 representing its largest quarter ever. Business booked through alliance partners soared to 76 percent as the company’s new Scality ATLAS Partner Program was launched, which now supports 25 global alliance and channel partners including Cisco, Dell, and Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
“Our alliance partnership with Scality has been incredibly collaborative and enables us to jointly transform customers’ digital businesses with solutions they can trust,” said Bill Philbin, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Storage and Big Data Solutions at HPE. “Scality’s software-defined object storage alongside our density-optimized Apollo platforms and delivery expertise combine to help customers solve their emerging big data and active archive challenges.”
Scality extended its install base with more than 40 new enterprise customers, bringing the total number of million-dollar accounts to 25 and total referenceable customers to 135. New customers came from across the United States, Western Europe, and Japan in the banking and finance, media and entertainment, manufacturing, and industrial design markets, with Scality capturing four of the world’s fifteen largest banks.
“2016 was a banner year for Scality. We were named a global leader in the distributed file system and object storage markets by the two leading industry analyst firms, we established sales coverage in Japan and Germany, deepened our C-level bench with industry trailblazers, released innovative new Scality RING object storage and S3 Server products, and aggressively expanded revenue through our alliance and channel partners,” said Jérôme Lecat, CEO at Scality. “We have primed the engine for an explosive, growth-fueled new year.”
Pivotal product launches resulted in more than 240 petabytes of capacity shipped last year. The introduction of Scality S3 Server for Scality RING drove exceptional revenue growth seen through the year in the enterprise cloud space. Furthering its ability to uniquely inspire the S3 community, Scality joined the AWS Partner Network and put S3 on-premises, releasing the Scality Open Source S3 Server to the AWS Marketplace which has garnered 142,000 downloads to date.
