Scality has released RING8, a software-defined solution for large-scale on-premises storage of unstructured data.

The latest generation of Scality’s flagship product is said to bring business agility, resiliency and efficiency to organisations facing data storage and orchestration challenges at petabyte-scale and beyond, across multiple clouds, and core-and-edge environments. 


In addition to the new eXtended Data Management (XDM) tool, integrating cloud data orchestration into the RING, key features of RING8 also include enhancements to its security, multi-tenancy and cloud-native application support designed for enterprises and service providers looking to ultimately ensure business continuity.

“We created Scality convinced that Global 2000 enterprises, cloud providers and governments would need access to cloud technologies to deliver best in class service to their customers and citizens. That was ten years ago, and it is now a reality,” said Jérôme Lecat, Scality’s founder and CEO.  

 “Our customers are doing amazing – and diverse – things with high-value data: providing personalised services in airports and sports arenas; optimising news and entertainment media processing and distribution, and much more.” 

“We understand the value of that data, and bring cutting-edge solutions for the complex data orchestration that has to take place as organisations break silos at the same time that they are deploying and leveraging a mix of their own on-premises private clouds and use services in public clouds, as well as in key regional and specialised clouds. We believe in continuous improvement, and the new features in RING8 respond to evolving customer needs – the kind that affect their success.
