RING8 Stands Out in Cloud Storage Category, Recognized for Helping Solve Today’s Complex Data Management Challenges

San Francisco, CA – January 21, 2020

Scality, leader in software solutions for global data orchestration and distributed file and object storage, today announced its RING8 software-defined storage has been named a finalist in the Storage magazine and SearchStorage 2019 Products of the Year award. Scality’s RING8 qualified in the Cloud Storage category because the latest generation of the company’s flagship product brings business agility, resiliency and efficiency to organizations facing data storage and orchestration challenges at petabyte-scale and beyond, across multiple clouds, and core-and-edge environments.

Finalists in the category include products that aim to help control data storage costs, solve hybrid storage challenges, manage cloud-hosted data and address the unique security challenges posed by the cloud.

“Being shortlisted for this award by top thought leaders in the storage industry is a tremendous validation of the capabilities that Scality’s RING8 offers,” said Paul Speciale, Chief Product Officer at Scality. “We are pleased to be recognized as top choice for cloud products that offer superior innovation, ease of integration, performance and value.

RING8 was developed to solve the complexities that come with today’s growing hybrid cloud data trends driven by edge computing. The increase in enterprise and public clouds for core workloads, and the proliferation of data generation and use at the edge drive ever more complex data management challenges. More and more organizations are leveraging the benefits of hybrid cloud for data protection and disaster recovery options, in addition to keeping data near cloud compute resources. This brings new challenges that demand proven solutions to store, govern and orchestrate massive volumes of data across geographies and clouds. Scality’s synergy with public clouds, including Wasabi, Google, AWS and Azure—including the development of the Azure Blob API to enable easy 2-way data movement—keep cloud options wide-open for our customers.”

Winners for the Storage magazine and SearchStorage 2019 Products of the Year award will be announced in February.
