Storage You Don’t Need a PhD to Manage

Advancements in research instrumentation such as gene sequencers, and mass spectrometers combined with increases in image resolution are leading to a tremendous amount of data. Life Sciences and bioinformatics organizations often need to reduce the speed of their research to ensure data can be stored, accessed and preserved at the rate that it can be created. This results in inefficiencies that ultimately lengthen research times and could potentially impact clinical trials or a product launch and put you at a competitive disadvantage. Caringo Swarm software-defined storage solves these issues by providing highly automated storage with plug-and-play capacity and high performance all in one solution you don’t need a PhD to manage.

Don’t let storage slow down your research.

Everything You Need in One Install

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.

Eliminates Complexity to Enable Scale

Swarm doesn’t rely on a file system that gets brittle with size. All operational and descriptive information is stored as metadata contiguously with each object. The zeroFS approach means storage capacity and file count can scale with no worries.

Tune to Your Specific Use Case

Swarm can extract every bit of value from commodity hardware but if a power boost is needed you can choose higher performance servers, solid-state drives or 10 GigE networks to enable performance intensive workloads.

Fast for Small and 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 the Data You Need, When You Need It

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