Breaking data silos to extract insights from data at the speed of thought
An agile solution rapidly adapts to changing conditions and is easily implemented in numerous ways. With Scality RING, IT pros are transforming their businesses by breaking data silos at petabyte-scale to gain more insights at record speed. How are they doing it?
Scality customers have the agility and freedom of choice to deploy on any platform or environment. Scale seamlessly? Yes, without limits. Hybrid or multi-cloud? Sure. Multiple hardware vendors? No problem. HDD or all-flash? The choice is yours.
Modern enterprises capitalize on the agility of Scality RING to accelerate intelligent business decisions with unified data.
Scality stands alone as the only integrated file and object architecture. Customers can deploy a wide range of legacy (file-based) apps as well as ‘object-savvy’, cloud-native apps. They are now actively innovating with new cloud services, big data analytics, AI, machine learning, data archiving and more.
Whether it’s the National Library of Spain using Scality to preserve priceless ancient texts, Bloomberg Media using the RING to stream and archive large media files, Comcast using Scality to manage critical email data, or HPE using Zenko (RING XDM) to deliver insights from their intelligent data lake at the speed of thought, businesses rely on Scality to achieve solid business outcomes.

Trusted to manage mission-critical data across the globe
Stability and trust of Scality extend across industries, use cases and continents. Six of the world’s largest banks and 60% of the largest service providers use RING. So do 40+ large hospital systems and government agencies in North America, Europe and Asia.
Scality customers trust us to manage their most mission-critical data. Our technology vision has stood the test of time with over a decade of use and scrutiny. Building a cloud-like infrastructure in an on-prem environment requires the most reliable, secure solutions. It demands flawless performance at the scale of Amazon, Google Cloud and Azure while keeping data accessible and protected at all times.
Security risks today are real — and on the rise. Scality keeps data safe and helps withstand potential attacks. This includes comprehensive protection with secure authentication, access control policies and data encryption. To defend against threats, RING also implements a multi-tenancy security model for object storage. Built on the AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) model, it makes the experience of managing RING totally familiar to users of the AWS cloud.
Customers have also come to rely on our extensive and solid partnerships with both solutions and strategic platform partners. On the solutions side, Weka, Veeam, Ctera and Splunk provide the highest levels of performance, security and data intelligence (check out our complete list of ISV partners). Scality’s hardware partners — HPE, Supermicro, Cisco, Western Digital, Lenovo, Gigabytes and Dell EMC — have validated our joint solutions in their most high-profile customer accounts.
Transforming IT to withstand any challenge
The definition of resilience implies toughness and determination regardless of the challenge. It’s also soft and elastic, easily springing back to shape if challenged. Customers in Gartner Peer Insights define Scality as resilient. Why? Because they’re able to bounce back no matter what occurs.
Scality’s data durability, availability and integrity keep data centers and customers resilient against anything that comes their way. The RING was engineered to protect data in both expected and unexpected circumstances — and it does so at the highest possible level (up to an incredible 14 nines of durability).
The RING’s underlying erasure coding, data replication and self-healing capabilities after disk or server failures, as well as its advanced geo-distribution capabilities, keep data available even during data center (site) failures.
Scality mitigates the impact of unforeseen events by ensuring business continuity of the data infrastructure, thereby making the challenging task of disaster recovery that much easier. As our customers undergo digital transformation, the RING enables them to remain resilient in the face of any challenge.
Scality’s leadership translates into business wins for IT pros
As we head into the final stretch of 2020, there is uncertainty about what lies ahead. But there are two things we know for sure: your business relies on your data’s integrity and our commitment to customers is unwavering. That’s why Scality makes such a great partner — we are here to protect and to harness your most valuable asset.
Now with a five-time recognition from Gartner, we see this as validation of what we deliver to customers every day, without fail: software that unifies and protects their data and technology that supports their own business success as agile, stable and resilient IT leaders.
