#201 – Introducing Scality ARTESCA (Sponsored)

In this week’s episode, Chris and Martin talk to Paul Speciale (Chief Product Officer at Scality) and Chris Tinker (Distinguished Technologist with HPE) about the launch of ARTESCA, a new lightweight, cloud-native object storage solution. HPE and Scality have announced the product jointly, delivering the solution on HPE hardware with an exclusive distribution agreement for 6 months. We get the detail on why ARTESCA is different to RING and the types of workload Scality is aiming to support.

Since the launch of Scality and RING a decade ago, a lot has changed in technology and the industry. Physical media is 10x the capacity and solid-state media is affordable at scale.

Customers are looking for new solutions that can be deployed in cloud and edge scenarios, with much lower capacity entry points, but with greater I/O capabilities. ARTESCA is the culmination of previous work on S3 Server and Zenko that addresses the needs of modern unstructured data solutions.

HPE has an exclusive 6-month agreement to distribute ARTESCA on HPE server hardware. This introduces a range of new options, including all-flash and NVMe.
