Caringo M&E Storage Benefits

Meeting the Demands of Digital Video Workloads

Optimize storage and access at every stage of the digital asset lifecycle—from production
to delivery to long-term preservation.

Keep Content Online, Searchable and Accessible


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 utilization—approaching the low TCO of tape.

Stream Content Directly from the Archive


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.

Reduce Costs and Optimize 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.
