Scality, the developer of massively-scalable object storage software for email and cloud storage applications and the German Cloud Hosting provider Dunkel today announced the immediate availability of the first S3-compatible cloud storage service in Germany
Dunkel a leading German hosting and IT security company, supports enterprises to make their IT Infrastructure secure and highly available and provides managed security, cloud hosting and cloud storage services. Initially, Dunkel evaluated more than 10 different products for their own internal storage virtualization needs. After extensive testing Dunkel chose Scality for its “always-on storage, highly available and easily scalable without big hassles” capabilities.
“During discussion with Scality, we learned of the availability of the S3-compatible API which made us broaden our scope for storage”, recalls Axel Dunkel, founder and CEO of Dunkel GmbH. After further evaluation Dunkel decided to develop a cloud storage solution based on Scality.
“Cloud storage is a perfect supplement to our cloud hosting services and fits with our strategy of becoming a leading cloud service and cloud security provider for SMEs in Germany”, explains Axel Dunkel. “Scality’s cloud storage solution gives us the chance to provide the first S3-compatible cloud storage in Germany.”
“Many companies and web developers in Europe are concerned with storing critical data abroad; our new service gives them a great alternative,” continued Axel Dunkel. “We expect to gain a lot of new customers, not just for the cloud storage but also for our cloud hosting solutions.” Dunkel plans to attract solution providers to deploy secure and compliant cloud solutions using Dunkel Cloud Storage as a Germany-based storage cloud for their own services.
