Active Archive, Multi-Site Collaboration & Consolidation

Your digital assets are just that—assets. They need to remain available for reuse and continued collaboration. Files written via NFS, HTTP or S3 are all accessible, editable and immediately retrievable via any other protocol. Synchronous replication over LAN and asynchronous replication over WAN provide management-free disaster recovery. For colder assets you can use Caringo’s patented Darkive to spin down drives and reduce CPU utilizationapproaching the low TCO of tape.

Origin Storage & OTT Enablement

Natively accessible via HTTP, Swarm is ideal for content delivery origin storage, long-tail delivery and enabling over-the-top (OTT) services. Swarm delivers massive throughput with an industry-leading 95% capacity utilization and 100% chassis drive bay utilization. Parallel uploading of large files and range reads ensure you can store assets quickly and viewers can view any frame in a video quickly.

Optimize Production Shared Storage

At the heart of most editing workflows are Shared Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices that, while necessary from a performance perspective, are difficult and expensive to scale, manage and protect. Caringo solutions optimize existing workflows and applications in your shared storage by integrating with your Windows Storage Server, NetApp Filer, Avid ISIS or 3rd-party shared storage, tiering data to Caringo Swarm Object Storage. The result: massive scalability and secure accessibility. No need to rip and replace or modify applications, processes or user behavior. Extend your NAS device’s usefulness and optimize capacity and utilization.

Backend Digital Asset Management

Through native integrations and S3 API support, Caringo Swarm can be used as the storage target for a number of Digital Asset Management and Media Asset Management solutions, bringing simple boot-from-bare-metal installation and continuous protection to your asset management infrastructure. Use integrated feeds (content distribution) to replicate to a remote site for DR or built-in compliance features like WORM, Legal Hold, and Integrity Seals to meet even the most stringent protection policies. Your digital assets are continuously protected and instantly accessible.
