It may sound counter-intuitive at first, but one of the drivers fueling Multi-Cloud’s momentum is cost savings. How would you be saving money if you store your data in multiple clouds? Well, here’s how: By leveraging the optimum, most cost-effective cloud services for your workload at any given time, across all cloud service providers (as opposed to just one) By avoiding data access/transfer costs and egress fees levied by cloud service providers (no data moving required) By using your newly found freedom and independence (from vendor lock-in that is) as bargaining chip and meaningful leverage to negotiate better pricing from.
Specialized services in public clouds – the value for active media workflows The Media & Entertainment vertical has been heavily influenced by public cloud. From the early days of using cloud storage as a long-term, inexpensive data archive, media companies are now seeing the primary value of cloud services to enable active media data workflows. Cloud services are evolving more toward specialized services – those that can provide value through processing of the data, versus just simple storage. Many people have considered the potential value of on-demand compute services such as AWS EC2 to perform compute-intensive jobs. For media, this.
When we crafted the motto that Scality started using at the beginning of 2018: “We give freedom and control to people who make value from data,” we parsed the words carefully. We were introspective about the characterization because we know a few important and basic facts to be true in the throes of the Fourth Industrial Revolution: Data is critical to decision-making and so much more, but the data itself has no value without intervention, interpretation and/or consumption by people at some point (usually many points), in some way. As the volume and value of data increases, the need to protect and.
Today we announced Scality Zenko under the headline “Scality Launches Zenko Open Source Software to Assure Data Control in a Multi-Cloud World.” Zenko will enable developers an application users to better control their unstructured data, while leveraging the efficiency and scale of both private and public cloud storage. Zenko is free to download, use, extend, embed and distribute into applications, opening a new world of multi-cloud storage for all. A key part of Zenko is that it provides a unified interface based on a proven implementation of the Amazon S3 API across multiple cloud storage services.
