Caringo Unleashes Swarm 8, Searchable Storage for the Cloud Age

Delivers actionable insight through organization and search at massive scale

AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Caringo today announced Swarm 8, continuing to deliver on the company's promise to change the economics of storage. Offered as a complete software appliance, Swarm provides a storage platform for data protection, management, organization and search at massive scale. Users 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 resources.

"Organizations that want to extract actionable insight from their data, but are struggling with finding the time, resources or expertise, should take a look at Swarm 8," said Marc Staimer from Dragon Slayer Consulting. "What they deliver goes beyond storage, offering a platform for companies to discover new information without needing to spin up and invest in multiple complex data analytics projects."

Swarm 8 installs on any mix of standard hardware, runs in RAM, and unlike file-system based storage, maximizes disk efficiency with an industry leading 95% of drive capacity for content. Swarm 8 radically simplifies an organization's ability to apply the value of data in an actionable way, providing insight at scale. One of Caringo's latest customers, iQMedia, who specializes in media analytics across television, online, social, and first-party data sources, is already reaping the benefits of Swarm 8.

"iQMedia's technology breaks through the traditional limitations of other media platforms, providing not only real time data and access but also actionable insights to our customers," said Lakshmi Venkataswamy, founder and CTO of iQMedia. "The way Swarm 8 automatically moves files from filers and the ability to consolidate, access and dynamically organize files at massive scale optimizes our storage operations and frees up resources to focus on continuing to deliver value to our customers instead of managing the storage infrastructure."

Swarm is the only object storage solution to offer adaptive power conservation technology, compliance features like WORM and Legal Hold, and the ability to seamlessly shift between protection methods—all automatically enforced by policies.  With Swarm 8, Caringo once again raises the bar in providing unique customer benefits including:

  • Dynamic insight and organization at massive scale. Gain robust insight and view relationships between objects through ad hoc search and query of object attributes or custom metadata. Results can be viewed via the new Swarm Portal or Caringo's comprehensive API, or exported to JSON or XML. All searches are dynamic and can be saved as Collections for reuse.
  • Rapid file use case development. Object versioning and object renaming dramatically reduce the development effort of integration with file system-based applications and interfaces.
  • All-inclusive, no-surprises pricing. Swarm 8 comes standard with ALL functionality enabled. This includes unique Swarm features like Darkive™ adaptive power conservation, all compliance features, HDFS, all multi-tenancy features (for public/private/hybrid cloud), NoSQL-like search and more.
  • Flexible deployment to meet any operational business requirements. Swarm 8 is available as software you run in your own data center(s), as a service in any of the Microsoft Azure globally distributed data centers or as a fully managed service within BT or Telefonica's globally distributed data centers.

Additionally, Swarm offers unrivaled integration into leading enterprise applications like Veritas Enterprise Vault, Commvault Simpana and compute and orchestration platforms like OpenStack, Spark and Hadoop. Search results can be seamlessly accessed via Kibana for visual analysis and discovery.

"Companies in every industry are experiencing a significant gap between the current capabilities of network attached storage and the volume of files, velocity of capacity growth and variability in access patterns," said Jonathan Ring, Founder and CEO of Caringo. "It's not just about cost any more, it's about managing and organizing data at scale. To compete, companies are adding more systems and increasing complexity. Swarm 8 simplifies the storage, access and now analytics IT stack by offering a platform that has been market-hardened over the last decade. Swarm 8 is easier to scale, more compliant, more efficient and now more insightful than any other object storage solution on the market."

Swarm 8 is available immediately. For additional information or to schedule a demo please visit www.caringo.com or email [email protected].

"Storpool does only block-level storage so we do one thing extremely well. The growth in data is what drives the move to software-defined technologies in general and software-defined storage," explained Boyan Ivanov, CEO and co-founder at StorPool, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
As DevOps methodologies expand their reach across the enterprise, organizations face the daunting challenge of adapting related cloud strategies to ensure optimal alignment, from managing complexity to ensuring proper governance. How can culture, automation, legacy apps and even budget be reexamined to enable this ongoing shift within the modern software factory? In her Day 2 Keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Aruna Ravichandran, VP, DevOps Solutions Marketing, CA Technologies, was joined by a panel of industry experts and real-world practitioners who shared their insight into an emerging set of best practices that lie at the heart of today's digital transformation.
