Now in my 7th year at Caringo, I’ve observed a surge of interest in object storage. With Caringo as the leading pioneer in the field, I’ve had the opportunity to work with many established experts. Given my focus on the design, implementation and management of object storage solutions, I’d like to share what we’ve learned at Caringo from our many installations.
I’m passionate about helping our customers and regularly see the benefit that our technology brings to them. From providing massive scale and protocol compatibility with a true global namespace to continuous data protection, our hassle-free storage eliminates concerns about losing valuable data or experiencing expensive downtime to restore systems after failure. The “pay-as-you-grow” pricing model also helps avoid a large total cost of acquisition (TCA) while enabling a lower storage TCO (total cost of ownership). In addition, the searchability, data management features and organizational benefits of eliminating storage silos enables compliance adherence and helps organizations mine the long-tail value of their data.
Caringo’s most frequently accessed content on our website is educational in nature, ranging from webinars (like A Deeper Dive into Object Storage and The Power of Metadata) to blogs (such as Back to Basics: What is Object Storage and Object Storage Basics for 2018) and eBooks (our most popular being NAS vs. Object—Which is Best for Your Data Center?). This was the inspiration for our Tech Tuesday webinar series, where we present a new topic monthly that dives into the details of adding object storage into your IT solutions.
In January, we started with How Does Object Storage Fit into Your IT Infrastructure? and in February we continued with Hardware Selection Criteria for Object Storage. Now, we are gearing up for our third webinar in the series: Capacity Planning and Scaling for Object Storage, Join us live on March 27, or watch on demand after the event.
In the meantime, if you have questions about how object storage can be used in a specific use case, contact us. We would be happy to answer your questions and schedule a demo with you.
