AUSTIN, Texas, December 2, 2013 — Caringo®, the leading provider of object storage software, and Moonwalk™, specialists in large-scale data management solutions, will co-host a webinar to educate attendees on how they can intelligently archive static files to object storage December 4th at 1 p.m. EST.
Entitled “OffTAP: Save your budget and optimize your NetApp,” the 30-minute presentation offers information about how organizations can free their IT budget from additional large storage purchases while retaining and optimizing their existing NetApp appliances in their primary workflow.
The webinar will show attendees how to use Moonwalk data management software and Caringo object storage software to:
- Automatically archive static files off of primary storage and onto object storage without impacting current workflow
- Optimize primary storage resources where they are needed and squeeze every bit of value from commodity server-based storage for everything else
- Store files for as long as needed rather than for as long as they can be kept affordably
- Shift IT’s resources from storage management to enabling data mining and better business outcomes
Moonwalk for Caringo automates and intelligently manages the migration of unstructured data from NetApp File Servers to Caringo CAStor®, object storage software, without affecting users and applications. File data can be optimized so that older or less-used files are automatically and transparently migrated to CAStor freeing up NetApp filers. Moonwalk automatically moves the file content and ensures that the original file remains intact, preserving all file attributes and security information. To learn more register for the webinar.
