Optimizing NAS and SAN Infrastructure by Tiering to Object Storage Software
AUSTIN, Texas, April 2, 2014 — Caringo®, the leading provider of object storage software, today announced an integration of its object storage software with the high performance archiving software solution from ASG Software Solutions, ASG-Digital Archive (ADA), to help protect organizations’ digital assets, streamline workflows and optimize storage.
Caringo’s object storage software can be used to store massive amounts of content for any amount of time. ADA is a comprehensive solution that provides an open, centrally managed and secure archive to address exponential growth in data volumes and long-term retention requirements across vertical applications. When used together, ASG’s ASG-Digital Archive and Caringo’s object storage software reduce the long-term cost of managing and archiving content while helping organizations adhere to their corporate and industry-specific policies.
“Many companies in the media and entertainment industry have either very large files or numerous small files,” said Robert Overzee, product marketing manager, ASG Software Solutions. “Both can quickly and completely fill up primary storage. The solution is to move lesser-used assets to archive storage where it remains easily accessible. ASG-Digital Archive simplifies this process, making it possible for content producers to determine what to archive and when to archive it. The integration into Caringo’s object storage software now means they can store it in an immediately accessible way, for as long as the content has value.”
Ideally suited for content production, the combined solution provides flexible archive methods for various points in any media and entertainment organization’s workflow to help optimize storage costs and resources; centrally manage long-term archives; enhance the performance of primary storage and backup software; and scale with intelligent peer-scaling architecture.
“We work tirelessly to ensure that our storage software is easy to scale and maintain with rock-solid reliability so that IT resources are free to focus on their primary business,” said Adrian J Herrera, senior director, marketing of Caringo. “By partnering with ASG, we are moving up one more step in the value chain, bringing a certified, complete solution for the media and entertainment industry, and content publishers in general, so they can focus on enabling content creation instead of managing storage infrasturcture.”
Caringo and ASG will demonstrate the solution in a webinar on April 29 at 7 a.m. PDT/10 a.m. EDT. Hosted by Adrian J Herrera , senior director marketing of Caringo, and Robert Overzee, product marketing manager from ASG.
