Premier provider of large file transfer solutions FileCatalyst integrates with Caringo Swarm Cloud & Object Storage Platform
Austin, TX, April 5, 2017 — Caringo, Inc. announced that FileCatalyst, premier large file transfer solution provider, has integrated with Caringo Swarm, The Cloud and Object Storage Platform. FileCatalyst accelerates the transmission of digital media assets allowing Caringo to deliver an even better end-user experience with reduced complexity and costs for clients.
Caringo Swarm object storage gives you control over any volume, flow or size of unstructured information—dramatically reducing complexity and costs while extracting maximum value and performance from hardware. With FileCatalyst’s high-speed file transmission technology, Caringo can ensure a fast, secure and reliable delivery of media files which is crucial for today’s CDN workflows.
“The need to decrease the storage cost curve, and long-term preservation requirements, are leading factors for users implementing object storage,” says Elton Carneiro, Director—Strategic partnerships and Cloud Services, FileCatalyst. “Caringo is widely known as one of the pioneers in this space and when paired with FileCatalyst, the integrated solution delivers an ideal mix of cost savings and performance for large file workflows.”
Unlike competing solutions, Caringo doesn’t use third-party tools or drivers to access object storage. Because of this tight integration, almost every function of FileCatalyst that can be performed on a physical storage medium can also be performed on object storage. Content is accessed through the entire FileCatalyst client suite, so there is no need for special tools or scripts.
“As the size of projects and files continue to increase and workflows become more dispersed across remote locations in the media and entertainment space, our customers need more efficient ways to transfer their large files,” says Tony Barbagallo, Caringo’s Vice President of Product. “By working with FileCatalyst, we are able to integrate one of the premier large file transfer solutions seamlessly with Swarm.”
