Object Storage Solves Data Retention and Access Issues

Is the data deluge causing storage to be an “albatross around the neck” of your organization? Object storage may be just the solution you need to archive, organize and access massive amounts of unstructured data.


As the data deluge continues to escalate, retaining, protecting and accessing data for organizations and businesses becomes more and more of a time-consuming, budget-busting, headache-causing “albatross around the neck.” Unfortunately, this proverbial albatross is not limited to just certain endeavors. It tends to be a horizontal issue that resonates across all vertical market segments.

Caringo Swarm hassle-free, limitless storage was designed to be an “open” way of storing content, accessible via a RESTful interface over HTTP. (See our Swarm Technology overview page.) In 2006, Swarm (originally called CAStor) was ahead of its time. So, when other companies were jumping on the bandwagon, Caringo engineering had field-hardened the product, built a vault of IP, gained expertise with many use cases and developed best practices for integration, deployment and data management. Over the past dozen years, we have helped numerous customers store, organize and access massive amounts of unstructured data.

Here’s a breakdown of some of the vertical market segments where Caringo object storage flourishes, the benefits Swarm provides in these types of use cases, and a link for additional information.
