Caringo, which describes itself as a scale-out cloud and object storage platform company, has announced that it is offering free full-featured 100 TB Swarm licenses to qualified Media & Entertainment (M&E) firms that are struggling to store, manage and protect their digital assets.
“IT execs in the M&E space are under extreme pressure to provide long-term accessible storage and instant search and delivery to customers and viewers,” said Adrian Herrera, vp of Marketing at Caringo. “The cloud isn’t a viable option for many because of security and cost concerns. The solution to this is using the same technology that powers major clouds—object storage, secure in their data center. With our announcement today, we are making it easy for qualified firms to get started by offering 100 terabytes of storage for free.”
The free 100 TB license and integration consultation is immediately available to qualified M&E firms. Interested parties can visit the Caringo website for more information.
Qualified firms include but are not limited to recording studios, content creation and post-production houses, broadcasters, and studios.
“Caringo Swarm serves as the foundation for securely accessible digital asset libraries and storage services for a wide range of government, telecommunications and entertainment organizations including British Telecom and NEP states the firm.
“Swarm installs on any mix of standard storage hardware, transforming it into a limitless and seamless pool of storage resources with asset protection, lifecycle management, search and security built in,” says Herrera.
The result, it states, integrates into media production and post, distribution and archive workflows, delivering up to a 75% reduction in storage TCO through unique hardware, operational and workflow efficiencies including:
Use of up to 95% of hard drive space and 100% of drive bays for digital assets.
The ability to automatically add performance or capacity in 90 seconds and continuously upgrade hardware without downtime or disruption to asset accessibility.
Automated policy-based protection to optimize for rapid access or data center footprint delivering enterprise-grade durability while defending against ransomware attacks.
Cross-platform collaboration and access enabled by Write/Read/Edit via HTTP, S3 or NFS interchangeably.
Rapid asset retrieval and instant delivery via integrated search with the ability to add custom metadata.
