In today’s media and entertainment (M&E) marketplace, a smooth, high-performing content distribution approach is imperative for success. As the size of projects and files continue to increase and workflows become more dispersed across remote locations, our customers need more efficient ways to transfer their large files. To that end, we have partnered with FileCatalyst to seamlessly integrate one of the premier large file transfer solutions with Caringo Swarm Cloud and Object Storage Platform.
FileCatalyst accelerates the transmission of digital media assets, allowing us to deliver an even better end-user experience with reduced complexity and costs for clients in the M&E sector. FileCatalyst is immune to the effects that latency and packet loss have on traditional file transfer methods like FTP, HTTP, or CIFS. Global organizations use FileCatalyst to solve issues related to file transfer, including content distribution, file sharing, and offsite backups.
Since Swarm doesn’t use third-party tools or drivers to access the object storage, virtually every function of FileCatalyst that can be performed on a physical storage medium can also be performed on Swarm object storage. Content is accessed through the entire FileCatalyst client suite, so there is no need for special tools or scripts.
Swarm gives you control over any volume, flow or size of unstructured information—dramatically reducing complexity and costs while extracting maximum value and performance from hardware. With FileCatalyst’s high-speed file transmission technology, we can ensure a fast, secure and reliable delivery of media files into Swarm, which is crucial for today’s content distribution workflows.
We will showcase our cloud and object storage platform at the 2017 NAB Show in booth No. SL12407. If you will be there and want to schedule an appointment, email us at info@Caringo.com. You can also contact us to set up a custom demonstration or to consult with one of our object storage experts at your convenience.
While object storage isn’t a panacea, it is an increasingly important storage technology that enables on-demand access for video workflows. More Details »
