Scality Receives Product of the Year Award at NAB 2019

Only a Handful of Exhibitors Out of Thousands Were Recognized For New Products Defining Technical Excellence in the Broadcast Market
San Francisco, CA – April 16, 2019

Scality™, the acknowledged leader for enabling distributed file and object storage and multi-cloud data control, today announced it was just honored by the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) with a Product of the Year award at the 2019 Expo.

At the 4-day event that hosts more than 103,000 attendees and thousands of participating exhibitors in Las Vegas, Scality’s Zenko™ multi-cloud data controller was awarded Product of the Year. Available in both open-source and Enterprise versions, Zenko provides a unified interface to manage and orchestrate data across hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

Product of the Year awards are given only to the most innovative and respected companies in their respective market segments and recognize the most significant and promising new products and technologies being exhibited at the Show.

This award dovetails with several other industry accolades awarded to Scality in the first Quarter of 2019, including having received the first and second highest scores in each of the five use cases in the annual Gartner® Critical Capabilities for Object Storage report for 2019.

“We are thrilled to be recognized by NAB for Zenko’s business value and technical excellence,” said Jerome Lecat, CEO and co-founder of Scality. “Zenko enables media companies to manage complex data workflows across disparate storage platforms and across hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Zenko allows development teams to deliver applications faster and at a lower cost while enabling data -– whether object- or file-based – to be stored at scale across any number of public or private infrastructures. Broadcast customers can now have visibility and control over multi-Petabytes of data anywhere in the world, get insights into all of that data and access it instantly – that is the true power of Zenko.”

In an industry where availability and control are key, Scality’s experience in providing solutions for media and entertainment runs deep. A mission-critical partner in cloud media workflows, as well as in post-production and origin server/content distribution, Scality’s strong global customer list in M&E includes Bloomberg Media and Deluxe in the US and Europe, ComHem in Sweden, Molotov.tv in France, MediaHub in Australia and DMM.com in Japan, just to name a few. A critical key to our success is Scality’s compatibility and partnership with the key media and entertainment applications, including production deployments with AWS Elemental, Cantemo, CatDV, Dalet, Edgeware and more; as well as standard object and file interfaces for easy integration with custom applications.
