Peer Global File Service and Scality RING seamlessly integrate file and object storage architectures for highly available enterprise backup and file sharing with version conflict prevention

CENTREVILLE, VA – May 15, 2017 — / — Peer Software, a developer of high-performance data replication technology for file collaboration and continuous availability, today announced it is a Scality Preferred Partner and that it has teamed up with Scality, a global leader in object and cloud storage, to deliver next generation data management solutions for multi-site organizations facing challenges related to the persistent growth of unstructured data.

The combined solution features two software-based flagship products, Peer Global File Service (PeerGFS) and Scality RING, working in concert to seamlessly integrate distributed file and object storage architectures for backup and file collaboration use cases. PeerGFS deploys a distributed file system that enables file sharing with file locking to prevent version conflicts, as well as centralized backup by replicating data in real-time across both local storage at physical sites and to Scality RING, which serves as a shared file system repository.

“Enterprise customers today typically have a combination of server and mixed storage infrastructure at their physical branch office locations, as well as centralized resources in a datacenter and in the cloud,” said Peer Software CEO Jimmy Tam. “The combination of PeerGFS and Scality RING enables our mutual customers to benefit from the operational efficiency of a shared file system leveraging object storage on Scality RING, and the ability to scale their data across multiple physical sites to collaborate without affecting performance, or worrying about downtime.”

“We are pleased to welcome Peer Software as one of the latest additions to our application partner ecosystem,” stated Paul Turner, chief marketing officer at Scality. “Scality-certified applications like PeerGFS deliver innovative ways for customers to deploy Scality RING object storage, like in this new joint solution for multi-site data management. Solutions like these highlight the undeniable versatility of software-defined object storage as it delivers on the promise to transform storage for digital business.”
