Gartner notes, "Vendors in the Leaders quadrant have the highest scores for 
their ability to execute and completeness of vision. A vendor in the Leaders 
quadrant has the market share, credibility, and marketing and sales 
capabilities needed to drive the acceptance of new technologies. Market Leaders 
will typically be able to execute strongly across multiple geographies with 
products that cover both distributed file systems and object storage offerings. 
They also have consistent financial performance, broad platform support and 
flexible deployments models."

Software-defined Scality RING object storage turns any standard x86 servers 
into web-scale storage. It scales without limits and guarantees 100 percent 
reliability—all while reducing cost by as much as 90 percent compared to legacy 
systems. According to Gartner, "the vendors in this market for distributed file 
systems and object storage are offering mixed deployment options to give 
customers choices in how they deploy infrastructure. Common deployment options 
include turnkey appliances or software-only option that can be deployed either 
on bare-metal industry-standard hardware as virtual machines or on Docker 
containers. Increasingly, vendors in this market are offering their products as 
software-defined storage pre-certified to run on x86 industry-standard 

"We believe that Scality's distinction in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for File 
Systems and Object Storage for two consecutive years is a strong validation of 
the power of the Scality RING object storage platform and the value it brings 
to our customers across wide-ranging vertical market environments," said Jérôme 
Lecat, CEO at Scality. "We are especially proud of our progression further 
along the 'Completeness of Vision' axis, which, in our opinion, is testament to 
the strength of our groundbreaking product and cloud storage technology
