Cloud storage backup agreement to cut long-term data storage costs

Scality, best known for enabling distributed file and object storage and multi-cloud data control, has announced an expanded partnership with Veeam Software, the backup solutions specialist.

Working in collaboration, the two partners have fine-tuned Scality's RING software-defined storage with newly-announced Veeam Cloud Tier to reduce long-term retention costs and make the scale-out backup repository capacity virtually infinite.

The joint development has resulted in a software package that simplifies storage management and allows faster restore times due to low latency network access to object storage, it is claimed.             

Software-defined Scality RING meets the particular challenges of petabyte-scale backup. It turns any standard x86 server into web-scale storage that keeps data without limits, with incredible efficiency and 100% reliability, guaranteed—all while reducing costs by as much as 90% over legacy systems.

Deployed by more than 200 petabyte-scale customers around the world, Scality RING features native file protocols and a high-fidelity S3-compatible API, data encryption, volume and bucket data protection, data-restorative versioning, extended location control for data sovereignty and disaster recovery geo-replication for customers requiring ironclad data protection.

“Many enterprises across the globe – even smaller hubs and remote branch offices – are looking to cloud architectures to lower backup and disaster recovery (DR) costs,” claimed Ken Ringdahl, vice president of Global Alliance Architecture at Veeam Software.

“Our ability to further support software-defined architectures like Scality through Veeam Cloud Tier gives our customers and service providers the competence to integrate with broader architectures. In the end, we’re able to deliver a simple and effective solution while still ensuring a lower TCO without proprietary hardware platform lock-in.”

“Petabyte-scale backups present unique challenges and using Scality RING software-defined storage as the backup repository for Veeam overcomes them,” said Michelle Rockler, Scality’s vice president of Strategic Alliances. “The value proposition is simple: easy, fast, resilient backups that are there when you need them and are just as easy and fast to restore. With Scality RING and the power of Veeam in tandem, you achieve goal one: that all backups are byte-for-byte accurate and easily restored over multiple drives and systems.”
