Caringo Announces Swarm 10 Platform & Single Server Object Storage
Swarm 10 object storage optimized for dense, distributed environments
Caringo has announced the Swarm 10 Platform and a new single server appliance targeting post-production houses, studios, broadcasters and small enterprises.
Unlike most object-based storage solutions—which require an initial Linux install on disk, “relying on expensive caching layers and load balancers to enable performance” — Caringo says Swarm contains all the software needed in a parallel architecture running in RAM. This method extracts every bit of value from standard drives, servers and network infrastructures.
“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, Caringo CEO. “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.”
Caringo’s release include:
Swarm 10 object storage optimized for dense, distributed environments, including an update to Elasticsearch 5.
A Swarm Single Server is said to reduce entry-level hardware requirements by 75%. “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,” says the firm.
SwarmNFS 2.1 delivers parallel, petabyte-scale sustained streaming of NFS to object. In recent tests on standard hardware, a single instance of SwarmNFS sustained reads of 1.6 GB/s (3PB+ per month) with no caching or spooling, states the firm.
FileFly 3.0 now supports AWS, Azure and Google Cloud, providing file tiering from Windows and NetApp.
