Benefits of Swarm Object Storage
to NFS and SMB Apps & Workflows
Do you need to securely store and access data via SMB, NFS, S3 and native Swarm HTTP? Do you need to organize millions or billions of files coming from different protocols, distribute data to different locations and easily search all files at once? Caringo® SwarmFS—a lightweight file protocol converter to bring the benefits of scale-out object storage to NFS and SMB, seamlessly integrating files and object storage.
Fully Distributed NFS Architecture
Easily centralize, distribute and manage data
Files can be ingested at any site and readily available across the globe via a single mount point. Swarm provides multi-tenancy and enhanced security, including integration with AD, LDAP and PAM.
Global Address Space
Eliminates storage and protocol silos with universal access
With SwarmFS, you can now write data to a global address space making it portable with multi-protocol read and write to Swarm through any combination of NFS, S3, SMB or SCSP/HTTP.
Eliminates Metadata Databases
Brings the Power of Metadata to Files
SwarmFS brings the power of metadata, inherent in Swarm object storage, to all files. With SwarmFS, metadata can be added to files directly from the client. Annotating files with metadata advances the way files can be searched, organized and analyzed at scale. Once on Swarm, data can be profiled with big data analysis tools such as Kibana. Collections of files can be mounted based on the result of a metadata search.
Sustained Data Streaming for NFS and SMB
With SwarmFS, a single mount point can be accessed across campus, across country or across the world. Our unique technology delivers a truly global namespace across NFS, SMB, S3 and Swarm HTTP.
