Mezeo Software and Scality Announce Product Integration Agreement

Mezeo infrastructure services now available with Scality’s RING Organic Storage™ platform

SNW EUROPE, Nov. 3, 2011 – Mezeo Software™, a leading provider of cloud storage management solutions, today announced an agreement with Scality, a storage software specialist dedicated to solving the problems associated with large-scale storage infrastructure, to make Mezeo software compatible and available for use with Scality’s RING Organic Storage™ technology, and vice versa. With the announcement, Scality becomes the latest Mezeo Ready Technology Partner, and Mezeo becomes a new member of Scality’s global partner network.

The agreement means Scality customers and partners will be able to use Mezeo’s cloud storage management solutions and services, and Mezeo customers and partners will be able to take advantage of Scality’s storage infrastructure software.
“We are pleased to welcome Scality as a Mezeo Ready Technology Partner. We believe this is not only a win for both companies but also for Mezeo Ready Service Providers and Technology Partners,” said Steve Lesem, President and CEO of Mezeo Software. “In addition to scalability and required cloud services, Mezeo Ready service providers now have the flexibility to leverage a variety of hardware with support for automatic tiering allowing them to build their cloud storage with the best price/performance in the market. With Scality’s RING Organic Storage, Mezeo Ready Technology Partners can combine these powerful capabilities with their backup, archiving and file server replacement offerings.”

Jérôme Lecat, CEO of Scality, said, “It is a privilege to welcome Mezeo into the fold as a new Scality partner. Scality is committed to enabling performant and cost effective storage at the petabyte scale for a wide variety of use cases. Our agreement with Mezeo means Cloud Storage service providers and private clouds can now leverage a comprehensive solution including Mezeo’s award-winning management software, and Scality’s hyper-scalable infrastructure.”

Mezeo provides cloud storage management software for API-accessible public, private and hybrid storage clouds. The software includes key services required for cloud storage environments, including REST API access with multiple programmatic solutions, multi-tenancy, identity management integration, automated provisioning of storage allocations, tracking and exposing required “cloud” billing data, geo location and single global name space. Together with Scality’s RING Organic storage, these services are delivered at cloud scale which means they enable the storing of billions of objects of any size and allow for the servicing of billions of requests at desired performance.

Like a living organism whose cells constantly and automatically replenish themselves even in a dynamically changing environment, Scality’s organic storage system allows for continuous growth in the face of constantly evolving storage requirements. RING Organic Storage transforms itself over time, always leveraging the lowest cost hardware, without requiring complex deployment or migration processing. The system is distributed, scale-out object storage software designed to be deployed on generic X86 servers equipped with SSD, SAS, SATA disks or other hardware of the user’s choice. It delivers high IO under parallel load and high throughput for large files with features that are traditionally found on high-end SAN, such as data persistence through replication and checksum, geo-redundancy, snapshot and automatic tiering. In addition, RING Organic Storage is self-healing and can be scaled from dozens of Terabytes to Exabytes, simply by adding servers. It supports multiple ways to connect to applications, including HTTP REST, RS2 API, and FUSE. Now Scality’s large-scale storage infrastructure capabilities are available with Mezeo’s cloud storage management solutions and clients.

Mezeo is partnering with leading technology providers to deliver compatibility and easy integration with today’s applications and web services. Through Mezeo Ready partners, Mezeo provides reliable, integrated storage and file system and cloud service delivery solutions.
