Caringo Swarm can be used to radically simplify high-performance computing (HPC) workloads, providing a storage platform for data protection, management, organization and search at massive scale. Users no longer need to migrate data into disparate solutions for content delivery, ongoing analysis, and long-term preservation.
Swarm’s multi-protocol support enables interoperability with various HPC use cases making it easy to migrate data from compute clusters, NAS/DAS storage that comes with instruments and devices, home directories, and Hadoop—freeing up expensive primary storage and experimentation space.
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.
Swarm’s native interface is a RESTful interface based on HTTP 1.1 with SDKs in all major languages. In addition, Swarm supports the Amazon S3 API and major storage protocols like NFS and SMB.
Rapidly deliver storage services and 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.
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.
Swarm can extract every bit of value from commodity hardware. However, you can choose high-performance servers, solid-state drives or 10 GigE networks for performance-intensive workloads.
