Paris, France / San Francisco, CA – December 10, 2015 Scality, the leader in software-defined storage for the information age, is ranked 39th and 198th, respectively, in the 2015 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 France and Fast 500 EMEA. Rankings are based on a company’s percentage revenue growth over four years. Reporting 516 percent revenue growth from 2011 to 2014.
“Securing a position in the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 is an impressive feat, especially in the highly competitive and rapidly changing environment of the technology industry,” said David Cobb, Deloitte UK and partner in charge of the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA programme. “We congratulate Scality on being among the most dynamic and successful technology companies in the region. With its 516% growth rate over four years, Scality has proven that its leadership has the vision and determination to grow in a highly competitive market.”
This recognition from Deloitte rounds out a banner award year for Scality. In addition to claiming the national title of “Start-Up of the Year 2015” for France, awarded by Ernst and Young in September, Scality last week received a Blue Mentor Award 2015, as part of the Blue Awards organized by HEC and consulting firm AXESSIO in France, and at the start of 2015 was named a leader in object-based storage by IDC*.
The Scality RING, Scality’s software-defined storage product, won the Bronze award by Storage magazine and searchstorage.com in their annual 2014 Products of the Year awards, and was recognized in CRN’s 2015 Tech Innovator Awards, as well as in the Best of Show Awards at Interop Tokyo 2015. The RING provides a hardware agnostic storage solution that allows for long-term data protection, infinite scalability, and rapid and secure access. Customer results from utilizing the RING include a reduction in CAPEX and OPEX expenditures, as well as increased performance, reliability and flexibility.
“Looking back on a year in which the storage industry underwent a major transformation, marked by numerous acquisitions and mergers, and by our own series of global wins; we consider 2015 to be a banner year, especially for Scality. Year over year, our employee headcount has doubled, the number of Enterprise customers has doubled, we’ve opened three new campuses in 2015, and have exceeded 500 million end users of the Scality RING. In addition, this year Scality doubled its overall funding to secure a total of $80 from investors spanning America, Europe and Asia. As a company, we have truly earned this recognition from Deloitte, and accept it with much pride,” said Erwan Menard, President and COO of Scality.
Menard continues, “Looking to 2016, Scality is pleased to retain a leadership position in storage, and will be announcing our expanding customer base of enterprises, software and hardware partnerships, as well as resellers, isvs and alliance partners, in the coming months. Scality’s software, the Scality RING, is changing the exabyte-scale storage landscape, hand-in-hand with our partners like HPE and Dell.”

To qualify for the Technology Fast 500, entrants must have had base-year operating revenues of at least €50,000 and current-year operating revenues of at least €800,000.
Entrants may be either public or private companies but must be a ‘technology company’, headquartered in EMEA.
