ViON and Scality have partnered to integrate RING8 as a core technology to power ViON's predefined cloud service offerings, including Object Storage-as-a-Service (OSaaS) and the long-term Archive-as-a-Service (AaaS), ViON announced on Wednesday

"RING8 is the perfect fit to extend our as-a-Service (aaS) solutions into object storage," said Tom Frana, chairman and CEO of ViON as well as a two-time Wash100 Award winner. "As our first pre-defined private cloud offering, Scality's core technology for object storage is best-in-class." 

RING will provide comprehensive, native AWS S3 API compatibility to ensure all cloud applications that run on AWS can also run on RING. RING will also support object storage with a native Azure Blob API to further expand application compatibility. 

ViON also selected RING8 to power long-term data archiving. The cloud services are components of ViON’s Enterprise Cloud (VEC) Infrastructure Services. The merger of ViON's U.S. federal market experience and Scality's unstructured data technology will address storage challenges for some of the largest federal agencies.   

ViON’s extended VEC portfolio will provide private cloud solutions that will enable users to scale non-disruptively as customers' needs change. Scality's software-only, vendor-agnostic approach will support ViON and allow the company to customize on-prem hardware to the exact specification and budget of each customer to support agile IT modernization within the government.

VEC's OSaaS will be offered in three classes, including a single-site storage bucket, a single-site storage bucket with data replication for disaster recovery and a multi-site storage bucket with data replicated between the two active sites. 

"Scality's platform empowers ViON to provide a secure, scalable service with market leading SLA's at cloud scale cost," said David Kushner, vice president of Sales at ViON. "This offering provides a unique service, which helps customers store, manage, and protect unstructured data at any scale with confidence."
