From an end-user’s perspective, the benefits of cloud storage are clear. The on-demand, pay-as-you-grow, endless-capacity characteristics are extremely attractive. However, service providers and IT administrators are now tasked with enabling these “benefits” as a service. Caringo Swarm provides everything you need for private, hybrid or public cloud services.
Object storage technology is the basis for all major clouds: public, private and hybrid. Founded in 2005, Caringo pioneered the object-based technology that provides the backbone for major cloud installations in both private and public cloud installations.
Offered as a complete software or hardware appliance, Swarm provides the foundation for a rapidly scalable cloud storage solution with infrastructure and tenant control for administrators, self-servicing and content search for employees. Swarm can be deployed in one or multiple sites with synchronous and asynchronous replication based on bandwidth speed and distance between data centers.
Swarm enables Service Providers to benefit from operational efficiencies and unique features to deliver a competitive advantage that will increase subscribers, reduce churn and optimize OPEX and CAPEX spend. Bare metal deployment on any mix of x86 hardware, an unprecedented 95% hard drive capacity for content, 100% drive bay utilization for content drives and industry-leading reliability are just a few of the reasons why BT, Telefónica, Greenhouse Data and others have selected Swarm as their Cloud Storage foundation.
Many organizations need to combine the economics and security of on-premise storage with the efficiency and additional services in Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Storage and AWS. In typical gateway offerings, files move to the Cloud in an opaque form either unusable to Cloud compute services or inaccessible from other protocols. Caringo Swarm Hybrid Cloud is different. By utilizing a single namespace across S3, NFS, HDFS and Azure blobs, Swarm Hybrid Cloud combines the benefits of hassle-free, secure, scale-out, on-premise private cloud storage with the operational efficiencies of the Cloud.
Object-based storage is a great way to make data accessible on any device to better support an organization’s BYOD strategy, whether it’s for long-term backup or file sync-and-share services in the cloud. We chose to partner with Caringo because of their leadership in object storage. Swarm offers a rich feature set and the resilience that we need to ensure our customers have the security and reliability they demand.
We have a number of certified resellers and technology partners that can help design, integrate and support a solution tailored to suite your unique needs.
