Scality Zenko is a multi-cloud data controller that allows you to stay in control of your data across any cloud. Zenko has been launched on July 2017 to provides a unified interface based on a proven implementation of the Amazon S3 API across clouds.

Zenko was built from the ground up to address the challenges of modern cloud application development and data management, overcoming the challenges of complexity and lock-in that come with today’s cloud storage services.

Now Scality has announced Zenko 1.0 with both the Open Source edition and the Zenko Enterprise edition.

In brief, Zenko:

  • stores all data unmodified so that it can be accessed and acted on in the cloud directly;
  • enables data mobility so that data can be easily placed in the most efficient location;
  • provides a single endpoint through which data can be stored, retrieved and searched across any location;
  • enables unified data management from anywhere through a secure cloud portal; and
  • can be deployed anywhere using Kubernetes orchestration framework: on-premises (on bare metal servers) or in-cloud.

“Cloud services from Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud, Google and other large players are finding their place as core elements of enterprise IT,” said Jerome Lecat, CEO at Scality. “What is required to extract the most from these clouds is a solution that can cloud-enable the data that resides in no matter where it’s stored, whether cloud, legacy NAS or newer object storage solutions. Zenko is a fully agnostic solution for cloud data workflow management that provides the intelligence to discover, integrate and manage data across existing enterprise storage solutions and public clouds.”
