Big data analytics

Accelerate data insights. Boost performance. Eliminate downtime.

big data storage

Big data challenges come with extraordinary opportunities if you can keep up with rapid data growth and demands for faster data access. And let’s not forget the need to support a wide range of formats and applications like AI/ML. 

Whatever your big data or analytics challenges, we're here to help.

Data-rich companies—small and large—use our secure, S3-compatible file and object storage software to power research, genomics sequencing, security log analysis, financial services, and more.

IT pros who work with our software are empowered to optimize the fastest growing type of data—unstructured data—in a secure on-prem, cloud-like environment. 

The insights obtained from large-scale data managed with Scality inspire informed business decisions and new innovations.


  • “It’s not just about buying a kit or services… [The insights Scality] delivers are opening doors to other divisions in our organization. Scality has engaged with us, becoming a partner to understand our future needs.”

    Alex Farr, IT Director, Transport Systems Catapult
  • “We’re not only realizing time savings for customer support, but also discovering new opportunities to innovate.”

    Ahmad Kassak, Director of Engineering, HPE


Advancing big data insights is not the only benefit. 

Well-trained ML models result in faster, more accurate AI and must be fed a steady diet of big data—the more, the better—so they can adapt and improve. Huge amounts of data call for huge amounts of storage, but all storage solutions aren’t created equal.

The cost savings and security improvements with on-premises object storage for large-scale data stores are proven. It’s why IT leaders responsible for the largest data pools in the world trust Scality to collect, manage, store and distribute their data.


  • Banking

    Fun fact:

    On-prem for big data is cheaper than public cloud!

    No more transaction fees!


    One of the top three U.S. banks chose Scality to manage their data lake on-prem instead of the public cloud.


    The result...


    The bank enhanced its own customers’ experience while lowering data storage costs by 50% in just three years.
