Scality And HPE Launch Object Storage Software For Kubernetes

ARTESCA supports application owners and DevOps with multicloud data management.

ARTESCA is described as a lightweight, enterprise-grade, cloud-native object storage solution designed for Kubernetes. Supported on a number of HPE all-flash and hybrid data storage servers, ARTESCA addresses multiple use cases, from the edge to the core to the cloud, especially in cloud-native, AI/ML, big data analytics and in-memory applications.

Scality say that, increasingly, object storage is deployed on flash-based systems and is now becoming the primary storage for modern applications. The cloud-native environment demands adaptability, portability and efficiency — attributes that traditional storage solutions struggle to match. ARTESCA is said to be the industry’s first solution of its kind, purpose-built for developers while meeting the security demands of the enterprise.

Scality is offering ARTESCA through a public cloud-inspired procurement model, with one, three and five-year subscriptions available. ARTESCA is available on the HPE portfolio through a six-month exclusive agreement and is also available as a cloud service through HPE GreenLake. 

Chris Powers, vp and gm, collaborative platforms and big data, HPE, said: “We are excited by what the new enterprise-grade yet lightweight object storage and data management solution co-designed by Scality and HPE can do for our joint customers. Combined with a new portfolio of six purposefully configured HPE systems, ARTESCA software empowers customers with an application-centric, developer-friendly, and cloud-first platform with which to store, access, and manage data for their cloud-native apps no matter where it lives — in the data centre, at the edge, and in public cloud.”

Randy Kerns, senior strategist and analyst, Evaluator Group, said: “Scality has figured out a way to include all the right attributes for cloud-native applications in ARTESCA: lightweight and fast object storage with enterprise-grade capabilities. This is challenging to accomplish and makes it an optimal storage solution for this new class of applications where performance demands are critical. The container-based design enables ARTESCA to fit into the Kubernetes ecosystem — a requirement for cloud-native applications.”

Jerome Lecat, CEO, Scality, said: “In today’s app-centric world, a fresh approach to data delivery is essential. ARTESCA is built on our 10+ years of experience supporting the world’s largest organisations and understanding their need to meet the demands of the 21st century. With our expanded portfolio, HPE and Scality will help more customers power their cloud native applications from cloud to core to edge. ARTESCA is a true enterprise-grade solution that is transforming how data is managed and delivered in a cloud-native world.”
