Caringo’s Swarm Object Storage Solution is now validated with Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage. With Caringo and Wasabi, organizations can “easily” add a geographically dispersed disaster recovery site.
The combined solution would be “simple” to set up and offer “seamless” integration. It is designed to enable business continuity and reduce storage costs by eliminating the need to maintain a secondary data center. The two companies claim that it is also satisfying hybrid cloud requirements for organizations at a fraction of the cost of other solutions.
Caringo Swarm, now “market-hardened” at version 11, is software-defined object storage that provides an S3-compatible, on-prem platform for data protection, management, organization and search at massive scale for unstructured data (e.g., photos, videos and files).
Organizations can now instantly backup any Caringo Swarm Object Storage domain or an entire cluster to Wasabi for continuous built-in data protection, backup and disaster recovery (DR). After backing up an entire Swarm domain or individual buckets to Wasabi, organizations can then restore their data to the original Swarm cluster or to an entirely new Swarm cluster directly from Wasabi.
“Caringo and Wasabi share a common bond in storage innovation,” said Tony Barbagallo, CEO of Caringo. “By validating compatibility of our products, we are providing an exceptional choice for organizations looking to solve pressing data protection and access issues for unstructured data without stressing IT staff hours and budget.”
The Caringo + Wasabi storage solution would be ideal for organizations that want to keep data on-prem but also want an off-prem copy in an S3-compliant cloud storage service.
“The partnership with Caringo helps empower organizations to seamlessly move to the cloud via a hybrid model with ultimate data protection and organization for things like photos and videos that can take up a huge amount of space,” said David Friend, CEO of Wasabi. “By providing instant backup to the cloud, businesses can restore their data in almost any configuration they’d like at a fraction of the cost of other services.”
