Scality S3 Server Now Generally Available
Hot on the heels of last week’s update to RING Version 6.0, Scality has announced the General Availability of its S3 Server software, an open source version of its S3 API. Scality S3 is packaged as a Docker container, which is designed for easy deployment on a single server. Scality indicates that it will allow developers to code the S3 API locally with the ability to extend the API as needed. The company adds that enterprises will be able to use the Scality S3 Server to accelerate time-to-market of cloud applications without having to make the decision of where the application will be deployed during production. Additionally, applications will be freely deployable on premises and on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Public Cloud without changing having to make any modifications to code.
Scality lists both free and paid support options on Docker Hub, Github, and the Scality S3 Server portal. Companies that need a commercially supported version of the Scality S3 Server are given a subscription option of $950 per month, per server.
