Caringo for Hybrid Cloud Storage

Hybrid Cloud Storage to Public or Private Cloud

Operational & Workflow Efficiencies for Private, Public & Hybrid Cloud

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.

Hassle-Free, Limitless Swarm Object Storage

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.

  • Robust metadata & search capabilities
  • S3, NFS, HDFS, Azure blob & HTTP support
  • Token-based & Enterprise ID (AD, LDAP, PAM)
  • Scale on premise with any mix of x86 hardware
  • Multi-tenancy and data management
  • Tier to Azure, Google or Amazon (AWS)

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.


  • Rapidly deliver a cloud storage service to your employees, business units or partners
  • Snap into existing authentication and access control systems
  • Ensure compliance and security from user management to storage access
  • Seamlessly integrate with popular cloud orchestration platforms


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.


  • Configure as Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service or Storage-as-a-Service
  • Differentiate cloud storage services with customizable SLAs and compliance features
  • Offer value-added services utilizing FileFly to tier from Windows Servers or NetApp File Servers and use SwarmNFS for legacy NFS support
  • Service-based pricing

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.


  • Access data via Caringo objects, S3, NFS and Azure blobs
  • Leverage Cloud Compute Services
  • Instant Disaster Recovery to geographically dispersed data centers


We can help you store all of the digital media you need to, for as long as you want to, and efficiently manage, distribute and deliver it.


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.
