San Francisco, CA, USA – 9th November 2011 – Scality, the pioneer of organic storage, today announced that Italian webhosting provider HostingSolutions.it has launched a geo-redundant public cloud storage offering powered by Scality’s high-performance RING Organic Storage™ technology. Based in Florence, HostingSolutions.it is a top 10 Italian webhosting provider and the main branch of the group Genesys Informatica Srl. After long evaluation of various technology options, HostingSolutions.it decided to implement Scality’s RING Organic Storage software to support the delivery of a secure, reliable and cost effective cloud service targeting enterprises of all sizes.
“We chose RING Organic Storage because it is architected to scale indefinitely without encountering any problems with performance or capacity,” said Luigi Corbacella, President of HostingSolutions.it. “RING Organic Storage reduces our storage and maintenance overheads and eliminates downtime, which means we can use the platform to provide a better service to our customers and save money on the bottom line.”
Scality’s presence in Europe has expanded significantly over the last two years. Today the VC-backed cloud storage software specialist leads the webhosting market in Italy, where four of the top ten webhosting providers have deployed and launched cloud storage services based on RING Organic Storage.
HostingSolutions.it plans to add more cloud services to its RING as the company continues enticing B2B customers, independent users, and solution providers to use HostingSolutions.it as the secure, compliant, Italian-based storage cloud for their customers.
Jérôme Lecat, CEO of Scality, said, “Initially some service providers wanted to deploy a ‘cloud’ service as soon as possible to keep up with the hype, but today we are witnessing a new era of cloud computing where the more mature players appeal to enterprise customers by emphasising security, performance and reliability. This shift in thinking confirms our earlier prediction that with the incredible growth of cloud storage demand, performance would become a key differentiator among technology providers.”
He added, “Scality is proud to bring new value to the technology market with our patented RING Organic Storage system, which translates into massively reduced overheads, uninterrupted service availability, and the freedom to incorporate the most cost-effective hardware available – all with zero downtime.”
