Scality and Cloud Field Day: A Bond That Spans Years

Scality has forged a strong bond with Cloud Field Day. It looks back at what it presented at Cloud Field day, and how the event helped it shape its products and conversations

Scality Scale-Out File and Object Storage

Scality revealed its hybrid and multi-cloud storage system, Zenko at Cloud Field day 9, and they gained at least one fan. Barry Coombs of Tech Doodles noted that the Zenko solution stood out because it allows the freedom to use object and file storage solutions both on-premises and in the cloud. The solution also has ‘unified management, single namespace, metadata search, flexible replication between clouds, all whilst still storing data in the native cloud formats’ – a plus in Barry’s books.


Scality Zenko Product Brief

In this paper, Chris Evans outlines Scality’s Zenko platform. This acts as a storage controller across object stores, whether on-prem or in the cloud. This draws on much of what Chris saw from Scality at Storage Field Day last year.


My dilemma of stateful storage marriage

Chin-Fah Heoh has been thinking about stateful data in stateful storage containers and how they would interact with distributed applications containers and functions-as-a-service. This led to a consideration of what a distributed data systems would look like, wherein the idea of a “data center” seems like an oxymoron. He’s seen some past Storage Field Day companies offer pieces on how to get to a distributed data system. Chin-Fah will be at Storage Field Day next month, and looks forward to seeing how Hedvig and WekaIO will offer more pieces to this puzzle.


Cloud Field Day 2 – A lesson learned

Last summer, Lino Telera attended his first Cloud Field Day. While the presenting companies showed off a vast array of products, platforms and solutions, for Lino the overall theme came down to being more dynamic with data across the cloud. He gives his impressions of all the presenters, from HPE’s Nimble Cloud Volumes to Nirmata’s SaaS solution to close the gap between developers and sysadmin.


Object Storage Critical Capabilities #3 – Searching, Indexing and Metadata

Chris Evans has been looking at object storage requirements in a series of posts. In this edition, he looks at how to handle object naming, the importance of user and system metadata, and the importance of search. For this last item, Chris highlights the Zenko multi-cloud object storage controller from Scality, which he saw at Storage Field Day in November.


Why move to one cloud, if you can move to a multi cloud?

Jon Klaus likes the cloud, but is hesitent to depend on a single provider. He looks at how Scality’s Zenko Multi Cloud Controller allows you to easily replicate storage across multiple clouds, public and private. This often increases resiliency and cost savings at the same time.
