AUSTIN, Texas, March 3, 2015 — Caringo® today announced its participation at the Open Compute Project (OCP) U.S. Summit 2015, March 9-11 at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, Calif. The company will be exhibiting its comprehensive approach to software-defined storage, Caringo Swarm™, with CEO Mark Goros speaking about Cold Storage and web-scale storage infrastructure in collaboration with Western Digital.

Caringo Swarm slashes the complexity of legacy storage while ensuring data is protected and accessible from any application, location or device. Swarm turns standard hardware into a reliable pool of shared resources while supporting all major cloud, file and storage protocols for instant access and analysis.

The OCP U.S. Summit features a lineup of keynote, executive track and engineering workshop speakers covering topics including data center, certification, hardware management, HPC, networking, Open Rack, server, storage and telco/comms. The expo floor will feature Open Compute Project hardware and those who are making it, selling it and adopting it. In addition to exhibiting Swarm, Goros will present “Architecting Highly Efficient Web-Scale Cold Storage for Unstructured Data – Every Bit and Watt Counts,” at the sold-out Engineering Workshop March 9 at 1:30 p.m. PDT.

“The Open Compute Project is helping organizations of every size realize the benefits of efficient server, storage and data center hardware designs for scalable computing which were once only available to the largest web properties,” said Mark Goros, Caringo CEO. “What we will be discussing and demonstrating at the Summit is how any company can leverage these designs in conjunction with Caringo Swarm and Western Digital Ae drives to maximize every bit of storage and watt of electricity. At any scale every bit and watt truly does count and we are pleased to be part of such an innovative event.”
