Searchable Storage for the Cloud Age

Swarm provides a platform for data protection, management, organization and search at massive scale. You no longer need to migrate data into disparate solutions for long-term preservation, delivery and analysis. Consolidate all files on Swarm, find the data you are looking for quickly, and reduce total cost of ownership by continuously evolving hardware and optimizing use of your resources.


Lowers Storage TCO

  • Reduces CAPEX and OPEX
  • Minimizes workload on primary file servers

Eliminates Risk

  • Provides 100% business continuity
  • Enables regulatory compliance



Improves Productivity

  • Automates file management
  • Adapts to your business
  • Organizes content at scale

Why Caringo Swarm?

90% of the data in the world has been generated in the last 2 years. Enterprises faced with designing storage infrastructure to handle this explosive growth can no longer rely on the scalability and accessibility of legacy file system technology. They need universal access, space efficiency, and highly available, robust architectures with the freedom to upgrade hardware as new technology becomes available.


“Scalability is one of the slickest things about Caringo, one sweet thing they did with the platform is, when you drop a new node in, it builds itself from the ground up. The new node announces itself to the main controller. If you want to add a 72 terabyte or petabyte node you just drop it in.”

Dive Deeper Into Swarm

Booting from bare metal, Swarm includes all operating system and services needed to run on any combination of x86 hardware and disk capacities. It runs everything from RAM, including its distributed dynamic index, leaving up to 95% of hard drive capacity for content.

You can deploy Swarm in private, public or hybrid configurations in single-site or multi-site deployments with built-in feeds for distributed content requirements. Multi-tenancy and metering are built in along with support for enterprise identity management solutions (LDAP,  AD, Linux PAM) and token-based authentication supporting the Amazon S3 API.

Swarm combines automated management of replication and erasure coding with continuous integrity checks, passive recovery and active recovery.

Receive instant access to our knowledge base, FAQs, tech notes and product alerts. Depending on your business requirements, choose the level of support you need. 24×7 support, proactive support and Professional Services are available to guide you every step of the way.

100% compatible with all Windows applications, CIFS or NFS servers, Amazon S3, web-based (HTTP) integration, or plugging into Hadoop.

Gain robust insight into objects stored. All searches are dynamic and can be saved for rapid reuse.

Search results can be compiled as JSON or XML for import into 3rd-party analytics applications like Kibana. In addition, Swarm plugs into Hadoop allowing HDFS to access data directly from Swarm.
