Caringo has announced the launch of its Swarm 10 Platform. This “major” release would touch every part of the Caringo Product suite and leverage Swarm’s “unique” pure-object approach to deliver performance at petabyte scale.
The object storage vendor has also launched a new single server appliance targeted at Media & Entertainment (M&E) organizations, specifically post-production houses, studios, broadcasters and small enterprises.
“Our Swarm 10 Platform is the culmination of over a decade of market hardening and continuous innovation to satisfy our customers who are driven by on-demand, distributed workflows,” said Tony Barbagallo, CEO of Caringo. “Swarm 10 gives larger organizations even more of what they already love about Caringo – performance, streamlined management, and granular data insight. And, with our new single-server appliance, smaller organizations have a much lower cost of entry to the most-scalable, on-prem, object-storage solution.”
Drives, Servers, Network
The Caringo Swarm pure-object solution contains all the software needed in a parallel architecture running in RAM. This method would extract every bit of value from standard drives, servers and network infrastructures. Highlights from Caringo’s latest object storage product release include:
- Swarm 10 object storage has been optimized for dense, distributed environments, including an update to Elasticsearch 5.
- New Swarm Single Server would reduce entry-level hardware requirements significantly. Swarm Single Server is a fully self-contained appliance that provides all the features of Swarm with 96 TBs of raw storage that can be racked or fit under a desk.
- SwarmNFS 2.1 delivers parallel, petabyte-scale sustained streaming of NFS to object. SwarmNFS also leverages Swarm’s parallel architecture so that multiple instances can be deployed as needed to further improve throughput.
- FileFly 3.0 now supports AWS, Azure and Google Cloud, providing file tiering from Windows and NetApp. In addition, a new, full-featured FileFly Community Edition is available that includes 25 TBs of useable data transfer to any target.
