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.

We are pleased to announce the availability of Scality Connect for Azure Blob Storage. Scality has been working closely with the Azure Storage team at Microsoft for the past several months on Scality Connect. Our product enables any application that works with Amazon S3 to support Azure Blob Storage. Why is this important? All of your proven Amazon S3 applications can start using Azure Blob Storage – without development effort or costly and time-consuming rewrites. You can read the press release here.

Scality Connect is offered as an application in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. Users with an Azure Marketplace subscription can select Scality Connect from the Marketplace and start an instance hosted in their Azure Account. We also implemented Scality Connect as a stateless service that is hosted on a VM within a customer’s Azure subscription.

Scality Connect uses native Azure Blob Storage API calls to map S3 Buckets and Objects to Containers and Blobs. This means that data stored in Azure Blob Storage through Scality Connect is not obfuscated in any way or stored in a proprietary format.

This deployment model and the architecture drive a number of key benefits:

  • Fast and easy deployment through a few clicks in the Marketplace
  • S3 API compatible for Bucket, Objects and Multi-Part Upload operations
  • Stateless architecture enables scale-out of performance, load balancing and failover
  • Data stored in Azure Blob Storage is in native Container and Blob format, so it can be accessed directly from other Azure applications and services.

Here is a diagram of the architecture:

Scality Connect will automatically translate Amazon S3 API calls to Azure Blob Storage API calls. And best of all, Scality Connect for Azure Blob Storage stores data in Azure native format so you can access your data with Azure cloud services such as Cortana Analytics, PowerBI, or Azure Machine Learning toolsets.
