The joint solution of SME and Scality offers customers the leading object storage solution with a fully enabled Enterprise File Share and Sync Fabric, allowing customers to provide storage access across global organisations and service providers.
"This partnership with Storage Made Easy is another great success for the Scality Application Partners Program as we continue to grow our enterprise applications portfolio.

The joint solution of the Scality RING with the SME File Share and Sync Fabric helps customers to deploy enterprise applications such as file sharing and worldwide collaboration at massive scale, supporting millions of globally distributed users and petabytes of data. The joint solution features sync & share, search and enables secure access to Scality RING storage from any desktop, web or mobile device.
The Scality RING is a storage product designed for the digital economy. It supports any file and object application, on any hardware, with unlimited capacity and guaranteed reliability. The product also can seamlessly scale storage to match business growth, running on any standard x86 hardware. The RING is perfect for capacity-driven workloads such as cloud services, high-definition video, and enterprise archiving.
The Storage Made Easy EFSS Gateway provides a unified Enterprise File Share and Sync Fabric enabling companies to unify and access data wherever it is stored. For object storage-based data, the SME solution bridges the gap between object and file storage by providing users with a familiar view similar their existing file-based solutions. This enables companies to set strong user controls through the use of policies, including full event audits, wherever company users access the data. Data can also be locked down through the use of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) controls which are built into the SME solution.
The SME solution provides native Cloud Drives for Mac, Windows and Linux that integrate the Scality RING directly into the business desktop, as well as web and mobile apps for anywhere, anytime access.
"Many companies and enterprises are investigating object storage especially as companies find themselves faced with an ever growing amount of unstructured digital data that needs to be accessed on demand from any device or any location in a secure way. Storage Made Easy facilitates the secure audited access to this ever growing data pool from the desktop as a drive, from a mobile device, or even over standards based protocols such as FTP or WebDav," said Storage Made Easy CEO Jim Liddle.
AXEZ, a data availability specialist and HP Platinum Converged Infrastructure partner, which is also a RING reseller, already utilises the Scality and SME solution to add to the company's core automated storage-as-a-service (StAAS) offering.

The tight collaboration between our three joint partners - HPE, Scality and SME - will only create more benefits for our customers," said René van Dop, CEO at AXEZ.
