Scality SA announced record earnings with 62% Y/Y growth in revenue for 1H20.
Its blue-chip customer base now includes 6 of the top banks and 7 of the top telecom operators in the world.
To continue growth into 2H20, it is ramping up partnerships with Veeam Software, Inc., in backup solutions that deliver Cloud Data Management, and Hewlett Packard Enterprise Development LP to support the largest storage deployments globally.
“Scality’s 62% revenue growth in 1H20 demonstrates the transformation customers are making to deploy object storage as their modern data management solution,” said Jérôme Lecat, CEO. “To provide customers with the most advanced offerings we continue to strengthen our strategic partnerships. Our new Veeam Ready qualification means we’ve now checked the box on enterprise-grade ransomware protection. And our HPE partnership continues to expand with the GreenLake as-a-service model really taking off.”
Veeam Ready Object with Immutability
Backup data has become a prime target of ransomware malware, so resilient backup storage is imperative. Scality RING8https://www.scality.com/products/ring/ now offers enhanced ransomware protection with support for S3 Object Lock API, which was designed to render data immutable by preventing it from being deleted or overwritten for a period of time (or indefinitely). Qualified as Veeam Ready Object with Immutability, RING8 provides for air-gapped, tamper-proof backup data that stays immune to ransomware, thereby offering a swift recovery path in case of an attack.
This qualification with Veeam Backup & Replication v10 means more protection for joint customers across all mission-critical industries, including fintech, healthcare, and key government agencies. Both firms joint customers include Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Opus Interactive, and Skillsoft.
“Scality’s reach with some of the largest companies around the globe made this qualification a great investment for our team,” said David Harvey, VP alliances, Veeam. “We’re excited to share the news that one of the leading scale-out object storage providers in the world is now Veeam Ready Object with Immutability.”
