AUSTIN, Texas, February 7, 2017 — Caringo today announced the FileFly® Secondary Storage Platform, a complete solution that solves the issues associated with Microsoft® Windows® Servers bloated with infrequently accessed unstructured data.

Organizations no longer need to waste budget by expanding or upgrading Windows Servers or waste resources evaluating what data is or isn’t useful. They can now maintain their existing servers and seamlessly add intelligent data transfer to a limitless tier of scale-out secondary storage at a quarter of the cost. In addition, primary storage is optimized, disk I/O is reduced and storage silos are consolidated. The FileFly Secondary Storage Platform is ideal for remote office consolidation, enabling collaboration and significantly simplifying data protection.

The solution, powered by FileFly 2.0 and Caringo Swarm, utilizes policies based on file attributes and access patterns to determine what data can be moved. Data transfer is automated and transparent to users, applications and processes. Once on the secondary tier, data is continuously protected and files transparently migrate back to primary storage upon access, leaving workflows and applications unaffected.

“Companies wanting to consolidate all of their corporate assets to a centralized location face issues with determining what data sets they should move from Windows Servers,” said Marc Staimer, President of Dragon Slayer Consulting. “With Caringo, companies can automate the data transfer process between primary and secondary tiers based on access and use patterns—without disruption to their current workflow.”

Caringo’s Secondary Storage Platform includes the latest version of the award-winning FileFly with support for Windows Distributed File System Replication (DFSR) and Resilient File System (ReFS).

Additional FileFly features:

  • Tier files based on policies
  • Generate advanced support notifications
  • Collaborate across remote branch offices
  • Aggregate files centrally from remote servers
  • Access files transparently with no application changes

The Caringo FileFly Secondary Storage Platform is offered as a hardware or software appliance, including premium remote installation and training.

The Caringo FileFly Secondary Storage Platform is the subject of Caringo’s BrightTALK webinar February 7 at 4 p.m. EST. Glen Olsen, Caringo Product Manager, will walk attendees through the powerful data protection enhancements of the latest version of the FileFly Secondary Storage Platform solution. Interested parties may register for free at to participate. A recorded version will also be available after the conclusion of the event.
