Snaps Into Existing Authentication Systems
Use LDAP, Active Directory and Linux PAM authentication for integration into existing enterprise identity management systems. Swarm also supports token-based authentication systems like S3.
Metering for Billing,
Reporting & Auditing
Access a data feed of transactions and requests by domain such as storage requests, attempted logins, etc. to create detailed billing and accounting reports for bandwidth usage, access audits and API request summaries. Graphical reporting is also supported through the administrator portal.
End-User Self Servicing
Administrators can easily manage tenants, buckets, quotas, metering and integration into identity management solutions via a web-based portal or programmatically via an API for seamless integration into 3rd party subscriber and billing management solutions. Administrators also have the option to enable end-user self-servicing.
Security & Compliance
Meet regulatory mandates that content is stored on non-erasable, non-rewritable media. You can also use Legal Hold to create a point-in-time snapshot of a specified set of files at a specified time. The files are then immutably stored regardless of what happens to the original file or cluster. Patented technology lets you prove in a court of law that content has not been tampered with. Integrity Seals are based on only the content and can be upgraded as newer hashing algorithms replace outdated ones.
Flexible Naming Schemes
with No Bucket Limits
Easy storage management and flexible bucket naming is enabled by lightweight tenant and domain creation and allocation. Access and deliver content using your corporate domain name. Virtual hosting of buckets is also supported through the Amazon S3 API.
Extensible API Architecture
Swarm supports the Amazon S3 API through an extensible architecture that can be used to seamlessly support additional third-party APIs. A broad range of applications that currently support the Amazon S3 API work directly with Swarm.
Securely Accessible, Multi-Tenant Storage for HPC Workloads
HPC customers unlock the value of their data and solve issues associated with data protection, management, organization and search at massive scale. Swarm Software is market-hardened and can run on any mix of standard hardware offering unrivaled flexibility.
