Caringo solves the issues associated with storing and protecting rapidly growing digital assets while keeping them online and accessible. Offered as software or as an appliance, Caringo optimizes storage and access at every stage of the digital asset lifecycle—from production to delivery to long-term preservation. M&E organizations including Studios, Production Houses, Broadcasters and Service Providers can now store what they need, ensure media integrity and keep assets online and accessible for reuse and monetization.
Your digital assets are just that—assets. They need to remain available for reuse and continued collaboration. Files written via NFS, HTTP or S3 are all accessible, editable and immediately retrievable via any other protocol. Synchronous replication over LAN and asynchronous replication over WAN provide management-free disaster recovery. For colder assets you can use Caringo’s patented Darkive to spin down drives and reduce CPU utilization—approaching the low TCO of tape.
Natively accessible via HTTP, Swarm is ideal for content delivery origin storage, long-tail delivery and enabling over-the-top (OTT) services. Swarm delivers massive throughput with an industry-leading 95% capacity utilization and 100% chassis drive bay utilization. Parallel uploading of large files and range reads ensure you can store assets quickly and viewers can view any frame in a video quickly.
At the heart of most editing workflows are Shared Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices that, while necessary from a performance perspective, are difficult and expensive to scale, manage and protect. Caringo solutions optimize existing workflows and applications in your shared storage by integrating with your Windows Storage Server, NetApp Filer, Avid ISIS or 3rd-party shared storage, tiering data to Caringo Swarm Object Storage. The result: massive scalability and secure accessibility. No need to rip and replace or modify applications, processes or user behavior. Extend your NAS device’s usefulness and optimize capacity and utilization.
Through native integrations and S3 API support, Caringo Swarm can be used as the storage target for a number of Digital Asset Management and Media Asset Management solutions, bringing simple boot-from-bare-metal installation and continuous protection to your asset management infrastructure. Use integrated feeds (content distribution) to replicate to a remote site for DR or built-in compliance features like WORM, Legal Hold, and Integrity Seals to meet even the most stringent protection policies. Your digital assets are continuously protected and instantly accessible.
We can help you store all of the digital media you need to, for as long as you want to and efficiently manage, distribute and deliver it.
The way Swarm automatically moves files from filers and the ability to consolidate, access and dynamically organize files at massive scale optimizes our storage operations and frees up resources to focus on continuing to deliver value to our customers instead of managing the storage infrastructure.
