While the future is unknown, one thing is crystal clear: In today’s rapidly changing world, the need to access your data from anywhere at any time is critical. This is especially true about data that tends to reside within traditional in-house storage solutions. This type of data can be difficult for teams suddenly making the change to remote working to access. Fortunately, Caringo has a solution for that problem.

How Can I Make Data Access Easier?

Using a best-of-breed Object Storage product like Caringo Swarm can make it easier to provide data access. This was part of the vision Caringo founders had in 2005, so they designed Swarm Object Storage from the ground up to provide “anywhere/anytime” data access capability along with the ability to seamlessly scale as more and more data accrued.

Over the past 15 years, Caringo software-defined Swarm storage has added more capabilities to meet the needs of an ever-evolving world and the changing needs of business. This has put us in the unique position of being able to help many types of organizations (from Media & Entertainment to Medical and Research to Government at all levels) securely store and easily access all types of data.

What Enables Swarm Object Storage to Provide Data Access from Anywhere?

To learn how Swarm Object Storage enables data access from anywhere, I recommend you join me and Ryan Meek, Caringo Principal Solutions Architect, for our May 26 Tech Tuesday Webinar, entitled How Object Storage Makes it Easier to Access Your Data from Anywhere.

As we often do in the Tech Tuesday webinars, we will be taking a deep dive into Object Storage technology in general and also sharing details about Caringo’s implementation. With 15 years of history, we have the most field-hardened product on the market along with the longest running and largest Object Storage clusters in the world. And, there is no one better to explain it all than Ryan, who was one of the early developers on the product.

What Object Storage Features Contribute to Making Data Accessible?

If I were to boil down the features that contribute to making Object Storage ideal for data accessibility, it would include protocol compatibility, data management and security features. In the Tech Tuesday webinar I mentioned earlier, our discussion will contain information about:

  • Web-based API (HTTP, S3) compatibility that supports a wide range of applications and devices
  • S3 endpoints
  • Security with full authentication & authorization (AAAA) support, including token/secret pairs
  • Multi-tenancy features that enable you to define business groups in object stores while avoiding those pesky data silos
  • Policy-based data management
  • Automatic remote site replication for rapid publication and distribution
