My role as VP Engineering and Services at Caringo affords me a great perspective on how object storage is used by our customers. One of the most interesting scenarios (or use cases) is content distribution and social discovery.
Just last week, I did a short video with George Crump of Storage Switzerland about how data is traditionally stored for web content and how this environment can be simplified with object storage. In it, we cover the advantages of object storage for people managing massive numbers of images and similar content—some of our customers are managing billions of images for direct web delivery right out of their storage cluster. Object storage is a natural for this—the storage is a web server (or the web server is the storage, depending on how you look at it). No need for extra layers and latency!

At Caringo, we tackle some of the toughest storage challenges around for some of the largest organizations in the private and public sectors. While we have a number of case studies and customers that have shared their stories, we have many more customers who prefer to keep the details of their operations private.
As the market leader in object storage, we are uniquely positioned to provide you with insight and guidance to tackle data storage issues—whether they be content distribution/social discovery, healthcare, or law enforcement. If you think object storage might be of value to you, please contact us. We are here to answer your questions and help you evaluate whether or not object storage is a good fit for your use case.
While object storage isn’t a panacea, it is an increasingly important storage technology that enables on-demand access for video workflows. More Details »
