Caringo expands Object Storage Software options for Dell customers
AUSTIN, Texas, April 17, 2013
AUSTIN, Texas, April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Caringo®, the leading provider
of object storage software, is pleased to announce a new generation of object
storage available across the full spectrum of Dell servers delivering more
comprehensive and flexible object-based cloud storage and active archive
The full suite of Caringo object storage software will now be available online
through Dell, backed by Caringo's pre-sales, sales and services expertise.
Standard configurations and full customization will be possible with Dell's
extensive line of x86 server and networking products. Dell customers will
benefit from the increased flexibility, and additional functionality offered
through the expanded software suite.
The software appliance model will replace the single hardware DX6000 platform
previously offered by Dell. Because of Caringo's unique architectural
characteristics, all investments in existing appliances will be protected; new
hardware and software can be added at any time with no forklift upgrades or
data migration required with full access to options unavailable on the DX6000.
"This change to a software appliance delivery method reflects market
requirements as users increasingly request a broader selection of hardware to
meet the needs that span a range from cloud storage to active archive
applications," said Mark Goros, CEO of Caringo. "Dell and Caringo take pride
in our joint ability to deliver the right products and services to a wide
variety of users. With increasing volume of customers and the relentless
growth of data, it makes sense to expand the offerings to take advantage of
the flexibility of Caringo software and the full spectrum of Dell servers
The expansion of software appliance options tracks with recent research that
revealed strong preferences for software-based, hardware-independent object
storage software over hardware-based object storage systems.
Caringo will make its entire software suite available including: CAStor® 6.0
with Elastic Content Protection (ECP), Content Router, Cluster Services Node,
CloudScaler, Indexer, and Content File Server software. CAStor provides the
storage industry's most comprehensive data protection functionality, allowing
organizations to meet any storage SLA, optimize deployment footprint and
enhance data accessibility regardless of the volume, velocity or variability
of unstructured information. ECP uses replication and erasure coding and
leverages Caringo's automated health monitoring and recovery to optimize
responsiveness as capacity grows.
