Native Object Storage Integration with Scality RING Brings Unlimited, Cost-Effective Capacity to Veeam® Cloud Tier For Long-Term Data Retention

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – January 22, 2019 — / — Scality™, the acknowledged leader for enabling distributed file and object storage and multi-cloud data control, announces an expanded partnership with Veeam® Software, the leader in Backup solutions that enable Intelligent Data Management™.

Working together, both companies have fine-tuned Scality’s RING software-defined storage with newly-announced Veeam Cloud Tier, reducing long-term retention costs and making the scale-out backup repository capacity virtually infinite, thereby simplifying storage management, and allowing for much faster restore times due to low latency network access to object storage.

Software-defined Scality RING meets the unique challenges of petabyte-scale backup. It turns any standard x86 server into Web-scale storage that keeps data without limits, with incredible efficiency and 100% reliability, guaranteed—all while reducing costs by as much as 90% over legacy systems.

Deployed by more than 200 petabyte-scale customers around the world, Scality RING features native file protocols and a high-fidelity S3-compatible API, data encryption, volume and bucket data protection, data-restorative versioning, extended location control for data sovereignty and disaster recovery geo-replication for customers requiring ironclad data protection.

“Many enterprises across the globe – even smaller hubs and remote branch offices – are looking to cloud architectures to lower backup and disaster recovery (DR) costs,” said Ken Ringdahl, Vice President of Global Alliance Architecture at Veeam Software. “Our ability to further support software-defined architectures like Scality through Veeam Cloud Tier gives our customers and service providers the competence to integrate with broader architectures. In the end, we’re able to deliver a simple and effective solution while still ensuring a lower TCO without proprietary hardware platform lock-in.”

“Petabyte-scale backups present unique challenges, and using Scality RING software-defined storage as the backup repository for Veeam overcomes them,” said Michelle Rockler, Scality’s Vice President of Strategic Alliances. “The value proposition is simple: easy, fast, resilient backups that are there when you need them and are just as easy and fast to restore. With Scality RING and the power of Veeam in tandem, you achieve goal one: that all backups are byte-for-byte accurate and easily restored over multiple drives and systems.”
