Self-Managing, Multi-Tenant Storage for HPC Workloads

The value in your data and applications is determined by how quickly and easily that data is available. While primary storage and SSDs may be ideal for low-latency and high-burst experiment workloads, they are not ideal for a searchable, cost-effective and web-accessible archive. The solution for data protection, management, organization and search at massive scale is Caringo Swarm Hassle-Free, Limitless Object Storage.

Hassle-Free, Limitless Object Storage for HPC

Founded in 2005, Caringo provides industry leading software-defined object storage so HPC customers can absorb ever-increasing capacity needs, support more researchers in various locations capturing and analyzing data, and keep pace with the ongoing shift in access from traditional file protocols to RESTful interfaces.

  • Search with custom metadata
  • Consolidate data silos with ease
  • Integrate metering and chargebacks
  • Enable secure collaboration
  • Increase experimentation capacity
  • Reduce storage TCO up to 75%

With Swarm’s multi-protocol support, you can tier data from high-performance storage and cache space. Swarm enables interoperability for various HPC use cases making it easy to migrate data from compute clusters, NAS/DAS storage with instruments and devices, home directories and Hadoop. Swarm’s native RESTful interface is based on HTTP 1.1 with SDKs in all major languages. Swarm supports the Amazon S3 API and major storage protocols like NFS and SMB.

Provide metered storage for chargebacks & multi-tenancy

With Swarm, you can rapidly deliver storage services and provide secure access to internal or external users. Swarm snaps into existing authentication and access control systems and comes with an integrated management portal for easy web-based or API-based administration.

Eliminate storage silos and enable search

Files from various sources are stored on the same storage platform, each with their own unique ID. This allows you to consolidate data and enable collaboration while eliminating storage silos. 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.

A complete scale out object storage platform for HPC

Caringo is committed to helping HPC customers unlock the value of their data and solve issues associated with data protection, management, organization and search at massive scale. Caringo software is market-hardened and can run on any mix of standard hardware, offering unrivaled flexibility.

Maintaining backups and archives is very expensive. With erasure coding, replication and other data protection features, we can move away from traditional backup. Object storage can take care of itself. Resiliency and flexibility is the real benefit for us.
