AUSTIN, Texas, June 1, 2011 — Caringo™ the leading provider of object storage software for digital content today announced that it has partnered with Perfect Search™ to provide mutual customers with a solution for the precise search of objects stored in Caringo object storage software (CAStor). Utilizing metadata, or the contents of the objects being stored, the combined solution enables the search of petabytes or even exabytes of data in under a second, instead of minutes or hours.
The Perfect Search Appliance (PSA) indexes the metadata and content of each object as it is stored, keeps track of the locators for each piece of data and provides precise hits as to where the query was found to enable immediate click through to the document, image, backup or file. When used in conjunction with CAStor, the PSA provides customers with rapid access to files or objects within the object store to provide customers with a comprehensive data management index and search solution.
"Perfect Search brings new search capabilities to the storage market never before offered. Others have provided the ability to search limited metadata, but no one has before offered a highly-scalable, cost-effective solution that allows a user to search not only the catalog information, but also the actual contents of the files stored," said Perfect Search CEO Tim Stay. "The technology that powers the Perfect Search Appliance delivers the premier enterprise search solution, designed specifically to address data stores that continue to rapidly scale and exponentially grow in size." "Customers in various industries have a pressing need to efficiently search the massive object stores our software enables," said Mark Goros, Caringo CEO. "Whether it is a financial services organization that needs to quickly find a check image stored 5 years ago for dispute resolution or a hospital looking up a PACS medical image for an upcoming surgery; Caringo CAStor's native integration with Perfect Search's PSA gives our users yet another way to solve their issues and streamline their business operations."

Offering both search engine SDK for OEM and search appliance solutions, Perfect Search enables enterprises to find the information they need when they need it, with speed and bulls-eye relevance.
