Scality ARTESCA is Now Available on VMware Virtual Machines to Ease Supply Chain Woes

Scality announced that Scality ARTESCA lightweight object storage software is now officially supported on VMware virtual machines, providing production-level support for customers, equal to that on physical servers in terms of functionality, along with additional deployment flexibility.

The support is critical in this time of supply chain issues that are causing long lead times for physical storage server hardware, which delay enterprise priorities, according to the vendor.

ARTESCA breaks away from traditional storage requirements with the ability to support production-level workloads on flexible, popular VMware VM infrastructures.

In addition to providing customers with more flexibility in deployment options, this enables partners and resellers to more rapidly deliver solutions to customers by sidestepping supply chain disruptions to provide faster time to revenue.

Launched last year, Scality ARTESCA is redefining object storage for the new cloud-native era. It provides both a small footprint at the edge and scalability for the data center. Designed for fast access anywhere data lives, ARTESCA uniquely combines lightweight, cloud-native object storage design with true enterprise-grade capabilities.

“Ongoing supply chain disruptions hamper business goals and growth. We’ve mashed up ARTESCA’s software-based object storage and VMWare’s vSphere environment to offer a work-around that bypasses current supply conditions by eliminating new hardware requirements. Companies can move forward with the data storage and management they need,” said Paul Speciale, chief marketing officer, Scality.
