Industry Leaders Partner to Offer Service Providers and Enterprises with the Most Efficient and Scalable Hosted Cloud Storage

San Francisco, CA – August 30, 2016 – Scality, the world leader in cloud and object storage, announced today that it has formed a partnership with OVH, the world’s third-largest hosting and Internet infrastructure provider to provide enterprises of all sizes a joint solution to tackle large scale storage needs. With this new go-to-market partnership, Scality software now runs on OVH servers which is ideal for Hosted Private Clouds environments. In other words, this partnership makes it possible for OVH customers to build Petabyte-scale storage pools by running Scality RING on their OVH Servers, getting the best of both worlds – efficient hosting and efficient storage.

Hosted Private Clouds have become the growing choice for the enterprise to combine the effectiveness of public cloud, and the control and privacy of private clouds. According to IDC, by 2018, more than 50 percent of enterprises will create and/or partner with industry cloud platforms to distribute their own innovations or source others. As OVH and Scality come together as leaders in their field, their combined petabyte-scale storage solution will provide the optimal level of reliability and performance to large enterprises.

“At Scality we leverage OVH for our own Private Cloud Infrastructure,” said Erwan Ménard, President and COO of Scality. “Utilizing OVHs technology for our own business needs is a strong testament to the confidence we have in the excellence of OVH infrastructure and teams, and is a major foundation of our newly formed partnership. We look forward to having enterprise-grade companies take advantage of the benefits of this joint offer for Hosted Private Clouds.”

This new joint Cloud storage solution provided by OVH and Scality is the result of combined testing and addresses the following needs:

  • Scale-Out NAS for 200TB usable and more
  • S3 Object Storage for 200TB usable and more

“The need for high and scalable volume storage continues to grow and is becoming critical for businesses whose activities require large and dedicated databases. We are delighted to elevate our relationship with Scality to the next level with this go-to-market partnership, which allows us to respond to customers” said Michel Calmejane, Chief Sales Officer at OVH. “Scality is at the forefront of enabling cloud and object storage for the digital economy, and with OVH’s ultra-high secure network, guaranteed bandwidth, and globally deployed fiber optics, together we look forward to providing the enterprise with unsurpassed large scale storage solutions.”
