Learn how to combine the speed of primary storage with cost-effective scale-out storage to enhance business agility

AUSTIN, Texas, June 23, 2016 — Caringo Product Manager Glen Olsen is presenting a live webinar, “Thin Provisioning and Protecting Primary Storage,” June 28 at 10:30 EDT. The webinar will showcase how thin provisioning primary storage with feature-rich policy-based automated tiering can help organizations gain additional flexibility, reduce complexity and lower overall storage TCO by 75%. The solution is completely transparent to existing users and applications and files are consolidated and protected on a searchable platform while active data remains on primary storage.

With more than two decades of industry experience and a keen focus on architecting data and storage solutions, Olsen leads Caringo’s efforts to bridge the gap between traditional storage and the company’s leading-edge scale-out storage solution. In the webinar, Olsen will share the advantages of thin provisioning and protecting primary storage with Caringo FileFly and Swarm to achieve benefits including:

  • Reducing storage TCO by up to 75% while freeing 90% or more of existing primary file server capacity
  • Automating file lifecycle management policies to simplify data management and provide cost-effective data protection from creation to expiration
  • Minimizing complexity and manual management with smart file movement that is completely transparent to applications and users
  • Taking advantage of today’s cloud-like scalable storage infrastructure on standard hardware

FileFly optimizes filers by transparently moving less-frequently accessed file data to Swarm, streamlining backup and recovery, and consolidating an organization’s data. Once on Swarm, files are secure and accessible from an object storage platform that can scale to hundreds of petabytes and beyond using any mix of commodity hardware.

The presentation will also be available on-demand following the conclusion of the live event as part of the company’s series of free educational videos hosted on its BrightTALK channel.
