Next week, I am once again heading back to the IBC show in Amsterdam, considered by some to be the world’s most influential media, entertainment and technology show. For me, a large part of the IBC experience is created by the unique venue of the event (the RAI), the exceptional quality and brilliant diversity of the delegates and the outstanding city of Amsterdam, filled with splendid restaurants and bars.
Slated for 13–17 September 2019, this year’s IBC has 400 inspirational speakers and boasts a world-class exhibition, packed with 1,700 exhibitors (including our Caringo team at Stand 5.C33). This provides a perfect environment in which to network, build relationships and discover the latest trends and technologies. I always find the sense of opportunity overwhelming, and this year, I am excited to discuss with attendees the latest developments at Caringo.
Expanding Caringo’s Global Footprint
Since last year’s IBC, Caringo has greatly expanded its global footprint with landmark deployments in Europe, the US and East Asia. In the UK (where I reside), Swarm emerged as the leader after object storage performance benchmarking at the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s (STFC) JASMIN super data cluster. (Download the STFC Object Storage Benchmarking Case Study & Whitepaper to learn more.)
Addressing More M&E Use Cases
As our pure object storage platform has been adopted by organizations and used for new use cases, the needs and input of our customers has helped to shape the evolution of our Swarm pure object storage platform. With our expansion of media & entertainment (M&E) use cases and customers, we have sharpened our capabilities to integrate into digital video workflows.
Over the past year, Caringo Swarm has been adopted by elite streaming services and implemented as an on-demand archive for professional sports teams.
