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].

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored.

And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
