Deliver a Great End-User Experience While Reducing Complexity & Costs

Value in the Content Delivery industry is determined by how quickly and easily you can get the digital media assets you create to your audience. If you deliver a poor end-user experience you run the risk of losing viewers or subscribers in a highly competitive space; but if you spend too much on infrastructure you can quickly deplete your capital and resources. The solution is Caringo Swarm, searchable scale-out storage software that combines massively scalable storage with direct HTTP access radically simplifying your content storage and delivery infrastructure while reducing costs.

Content Distribution

Produce, deliver, archive – all from the same storage.

Our software-defined storage transforms commodity servers into massively scalable storage that automatically balances storage within the system as well as automatically replicates hot content to ensure rapid delivery. You can continuously evolve hardware ensuring that you benefit from advancements in hardware performance, power consumption and costs – all while guaranteeing content integrity and access for as long as it has value.

Complete Software-defined Storage

Swarm is a complete software product that boots from bare metal and includes all operating system, services and interfaces needed. It runs from RAM leaving up to 98% of hard drive capacity for content.

Automatically Optimizes Popular (“Hot”) Content Delivery

Content is streamed via HTTP directly from Swarm storage. Additionally, “hot” or frequently accessed content is automatically copied and sent to additional nodes to ensure rapid delivery. Once content is no longer popular the additional copies are deleted.

Evolves with You While Guaranteeing Content Integrity

Use the servers, hard drive technology and network of your choice. Swarm supports rolling upgrades that let you seamlessly add new hardware even mixing drive sizes within the same node. This let’s you easily add new, more efficient hardware and retire old, resource consuming hardware.

Instant Access Regardless of Capacity or File Count

File addressing is based off of a 128-bit unique universal identifier or unique name. When content is accessed it is located instantly (zero IOPS) and delivered in milliseconds regardless of capacity or file count.

Fast for Small & Large Files

Swarm’s zeroFS, Swarm architecture, and Elastic Content Protection (management free movement between replication and erasure coding) provide consistent rapid performance for small files (Bytes) or large files (Terabytes).

Powerful Search, Find Content When You Need It

Gain robust insight into objects stored via Swarm Search. Ad hoc queries can be run on object attributes or metadata and viewed through a web-based portal or compiled as JSON or XML for import into 3rd party analytics applications.
