Backup target

Unmatched protection at scale to keep data safe

Bulletproof your last line of defense with the #1-ranked object storage backup target

Backup/restore is arguably the most business-critical workload. 94% of ransomware attacks now target backup repositories — and the reality is 58% of backups fail.

To maintain business continuity and operations in the face of any threat, you must be able to predictably and reliably restore from backups with a 24×7 infinitely scalable backup and recovery infrastructure that is immutable, eliminates data silos and simplifies management.

Never-fail, lightning-fast restores with 100% system uptime

Customers want simple, secure and fast backup storage solutions — solutions that offer combined short-term and long-term backup tiers, simplified access methods and ironclad ransomware protection. Scality delivers.

Read on to find out why we’re the leader in backup, according to Gartner and the world’s most data-informed organizations.
