AUSTIN, Texas, January 12, 2016 — Caringo today announced that FileFly™ for Swarm has been chosen as a finalist in TechTarget’s 2015 Product of the Year in the Enterprise Storage System Software category. The company’s Swarm object storage software was similarly honored last year.

Finalists were judged by a panel comprised of a cross-section of users, analysts, consultants and Storage magazine and editors. The products are rated according to their innovation, performance, ease of integration, ease of use, functionality and value. Results will be published in the February issue of Storage magazine and online.

Caringo’s FileFly optimizes existing or new filers without the need for painful data migrations or costly forklift upgrades.  Administrators set file- and directory-level policies to automatically and transparently move file data from NetApp or Windows filers to Caringo Swarm—bulletproof, limitless storage software that runs on any mix of commodity hardware.  All files can then be consolidated on a searchable platform accessible through major cloud APIs and plug into analytic packages like Hadoop and Kibana. Once consolidated, files are secure and accessible on Swarm, which can scale to hundreds of petabytes and beyond while reducing storage total cost of ownership by more than 4X. This is all achieved without changing the way employees or applications work.

“We are proud to once again be recognized by TechTarget as having provided one of the top storage system software products of the year with our latest nomination for FileFly,” said Jonathan Ring, CEO and founder of Caringo. “Our goal for FileFly has always been to help enterprises optimize filers, consolidate files, and streamline backup and recovery. Being named as a finalist for product of the year is further validation that we have succeeded in achieving this goal.”
