Strengths: Scality has strong channel partnerships and OEM relationships and provides a native, unified file and object platform for enterprise customers, Gartner said, noting that Ring also has a reputation for good performance with small files, which gives it the opportunity to replace traditional NAS products for unstructured data.

Cautions: High turnover means the Scality sales and support experience in North America has been mixed, Gartner said. Scality Ring is not designed as a replacement for general-purpose NAS solutions, as it is not optimized for heavy metadata and random access workloads, and does not have all the features of enterprise NAS, Gartner said. Scality is also the largest independent distributed file system and object storage vendor that does not sell its solution as a pre-integrated hardware appliance, making it an acquisition target for larger vendors seeking to add products and expertise focused on an emerging market.
