About Scality

Scality is a global company based in San Francisco, California that develops software-defined object storage. The Scality scale-out object storage software platform called RING is the company's commercial product. Scality RING software deploys on industry-standard x86 servers to store objects and files.

Hybrid Cloud Storage Use Case

Scality RING received the highest scores for the Hybrid Cloud Storage Use Case, and the second highest scores for each of the other four use cases: Analytics, Archiving, Backup, and Cloud Storage. And, to us, it’s significant to note that Scality shows to be the top scoring independent vendor across all five of the use cases.

Gartner Analysis

For the report, Gartner analysts Raj Bala and Julia Palmer evaluated 13 object storage products against eight critical capabilities:

  • Storage Efficiency
  • Security and Multitenancy
  • Capacity
  • Interoperability
  • Manageability
  • Performance
  • Resilience
  • Value

and five use cases:

  • Analytics
  • Archiving
  • Backup
  • Cloud Storage
  • Hybrid Cloud Storage

Scality RING scored extremely well across all critical capabilities and use cases, in every case scoring above 4 out of 5.

Scality Critical Capabilities

According to the report, Critical Capabilities for Object Storage (ID: G00352191) published on January 30, 2019, “Cost reduction is driving enterprise interest in on-premises object storage; however, compelling hybrid cloud storage capabilities also attract attention.”

Have a look, too at “Magic Quadrant for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage,” (Julia Palmer, Raj Bala, John MacArthur, 18 October, 2018)—where Scality was placed in the leader’s quadrant for the third year running.
