“Securing a position in the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 is an impressive feat, especially in the highly competitive and rapidly changing environment of the technology industry,” said David Cobb, Deloitte UK and partner in charge of the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA programme. “We congratulate Scality on being among the most dynamic and successful technology companies in the region. With its 516% growth rate over four years, Scality has proven that its leadership has the vision and determination to grow in a highly competitive market.”

“Looking back on a year in which the storage industry underwent a major transformation, marked by numerous acquisitions and mergers, and by our own series of global wins; we consider 2015 to be a banner year, especially for Scality. Year over year, our employee headcount has doubled, the number of Enterprise customers has doubled, we’ve opened three new campuses in 2015, and have exceeded 500 million end users of the Scality RING. In addition, this year Scality doubled its overall funding to secure a total of $80 from investors spanning America, Europe and Asia. As a company, we have truly earned this recognition from Deloitte, and accept it with much pride,” said Erwan Menard, President and COO of Scality.
Menard continues, “Looking to 2016, Scality is pleased to retain a leadership position in storage, and will be announcing our expanding customer base of enterprises, software and hardware partnerships, as well as resellers, ISVs and alliance partners, in the coming months. Scality’s software, the Scality RING, is changing the exabyte-scale storage landscape, hand-in-hand with our partners like HPE and Dell.”
