Judges commend RING9 as “a very important piece of the puzzle for internet security”


SAN FRANCISCO, CA April 27, 2023 – Today Scality was named the winner of a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Software Defined Infrastructure category of The 21st Annual American Business Awards®. The ninth generation of Scality’s industry-leading RING scale-out file and object storage software, RING9 software allows IT teams to build and run a modern hybrid-cloud data storage infrastructure with higher performance and efficiency.

As ransomware attacks rise and unstructured data growth and architectural complexity make it hard to operate an enterprise infrastructure, the American Business Awards judges in the software-defined infrastructures category commended RING9 for providing “a very important piece of the puzzle for internet security.”

“Having worked on multiple large scale projects on designing efficient Big Data warehousing solutions, the challenges mentioned in (Scality’s nomination) are real,” said one judge. “The aggregation and storage of big unstructured data becomes especially challenging if a company is operating a multi-tenant, multi-cloud/hybrid-cloud infrastructure. I liked how Scality’s RING9 is attempting to solve hard problems in the area of big data storage and management.” Another judge commended RING9 for demonstrating ‘impressive metrics and outcomes.”

RING9 brings business agility, resiliency and efficiency to data storage and orchestration at petabyte scale. The software further enhances and simplifies scale-out file and object storage for enterprises building private and hybrid cloud storage services with comprehensive AWS S3 and IAM compatibility. New features in RING9 enable IT teams to:


  • Fully leverage flash media through tiering and dynamic data protection policies.
  • Modernize monitoring stack with Prometheus tools and APIs.
  • Streamline integration with API extensions to ecosystem partners (Veeam, VMware Cloud Director (VCD)).

“RING9 represents a major step change for the entire storage industry, and we are thrilled that Scality RING9 is achieving its due recognition. Ransomware attacks have elevated the importance of object storage’s immutability features in the enterprise. We are delighted that the judges understand the significance of our innovations for simplifying enterprise data management and storage in the hybrid cloud.”
