Scality has announced the availability of its Scality S3 object storage on the HPE GreenLake Cloud Services platform to accelerate on-prem cloud services for customers who want to maintain data sovereignty, easily scale and control costs. The two companies are committed to solving the world’s biggest data challenges and together are delivering innovation that helps more companies achieve results that drive business success.
For organizations that host sensitive data, such as the Edmonton Police Service and Claro, migrating to the public cloud is not always the best option. Scality’s S3 Object Storage with HPE GreenLake provides these organizations with an alternative: on-premises, cloud-like data services that meet data sovereignty goals and requirements while keeping data secure. This integration keeps up with increasing capacity requirements despite rapid growth and supply chain concerns. It’s the cloud that comes to you, wherever your apps and data reside.
Together, HPE and Scality have deployed more than an exabyte of storage, with hundreds of joint customers in more than 40 countries. Benefits for organizations deploying Scality S3 object storage with HPE GreenLake include:
- No reliance on Amazon or the public cloud – and therefore no expensive data access or egress fees
- Scalable, highly available, highly durable (14:9s), cost-effective storage for all your applications with data immutability for ransomware protection
- S3-compliant object storage that is managed for them by HPE and keeps data secure and sovereign
Maurice Martin, vice president of HPE GreenLake Partner Ecosystem, said, “Customers need storage solutions that can be customized to their specific need, especially when moving data to public clouds is not an option. What’s more, they need that solution to scale without excessive fees.” HPE GreenLake and Scality have partnered to provide a future-proof solution for the modern enterprise.”

Gary Wong, Edmonton Police Director of Infrastructure, said, “Scality gives us the flexibility to scale our platform and store data, such as digital evidence files and camera footage, in a way that meets our needs. We looked for a solution that would be cost effective and reliable for the foreseeable future, which is exactly what Scality offers through HPE GreenLake. Scality and HPE allow us to have a cloud-like experience while keeping our data secure on-premises.”
Roberto Zambrano, product and presales manager at Claro, said: “We have achieved a 30% reduction in storage infrastructure costs by modernizing with Scality and the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform. The biggest benefit has been passed on to our healthcare customers, who now access critical patient data, such as scans, three to five times faster than before. Regulations require our largest healthcare customers to keep patient information local and sovereign. With HPE GreenLake and Scality, we can comply with these regulations while keeping data safe from threats like major outages in a world-class local data center.”
Wally MacDermid, vice president of strategic alliances at Scality, said, “Our customers are seeing data capacity growth of up to 25%. Between this growth and supply chain shortages, keeping up with capacity requirements is a big challenge – and then there are concerns about data security and sovereignty. Together with HPE GreenLake, we bring an on-premises cloud-like experience to help our customers meet capacity demands while maintaining data security and sovereignty. They get the best of both worlds by avoiding the challenges of pushing all their data to the public cloud, along with the convenience of a pay-as-you-go capacity consumption model.”
