Scality RING7 Shortlisted in the Software-Defined Storage Category
San Francisco, CA – January 25, 2018

Scality, a pioneer of software-defined, multi-cloud data storage, today announced that its RING7 solution has been named a finalist in the Storage magazine and SearchStorage 2017 Products of the Year award. Scality’s RING7 was shortlisted in the Software-defined storage category, standing out from other products for uniting its scale-out file system and object store, while enabling users to access the same data from either protocol. Finalists in the category include software that pools and centrally manages storage, file systems, object stores and software powering hyper-converged infrastructure, all running on standard servers with no dependencies on the underlying hardware.

“To be narrowed down to one of the select finalists for this award by the top thought leaders in storage technology is a true testament to the sophistication of Scality’s RING7 capabilities,” said Paul Speciale, Chief Product Officer at Scality. “We’re honored that we stood out from other competing solutions on the market, as our team has worked hard to deliver a solution to our customers which allows for ease of installation, integration and manageability.”

Scality RING7 is a multi-site scale-out filesystem and object storage solution. RING7 is used to leverage its scalability benefits and preserve securely encrypted essential data while making it disaster proof and highly available. This offering enriches Scality’s distributed scale-out filesystem, allowing concurrent user access across sites and parallel writers to increase throughput. It also unites file and object data, enabling users to access the same data from file or object protocols.

Winners for the Storage magazine and SearchStorage 2017 Products of the Year award will be announced in February.
