Caringo Announces the Availability of Swarm HadoopFS

Caringo announced the availability of Swarm HadoopFS, a native Hadoop 2+ connector for Caringo Swarm that saves time and resources with highly-efficient direct parallel map reduce processing, paired with compliance features such as WORM, integrity seals and Legal Hold. Using Hadoop for data processing and analytics typically involves a time-consuming and resource-intensive bulk-load of a data from an archive or file server into the Hadoop FileSystem (HDFS). With Caringo's direct approach, HDFS can read data directly from Swarm and, because of Swarm's unique massively parallel approach where all nodes cooperate to perform all processes, each HDFS server can pull data in parallel. This eliminates the time-consuming extract and ingest step, resulting in faster time to the map reduce stage while reducing reliance on expensive NAS or filer storage in a Hadoop environment. Additionally, organizations can use the standard compliance and data protection features in Swarm to ensure their data is safe, accessible and hasn't been tampered with. Swarm supports the ability to store data so that it can't be deleted (WORM); the ability to prove in a court of law content hasn't been tampered with (Integrity Seals); and the ability to take a snapshot of data and store it immutably (Legal Hold). These features combined with Swarm's ability to automatically manage the data lifecycle, moving from erasure coding or replication all on the same servers, make Swarm the best option for organizations that want to leverage Hadoop but have stringent regulatory requirements. Caringo Swarm HadoopFS is available now.

Caringo Unveils Caringo Swarm(TM), Unified Storage Software

Caringo introduced a comprehensive approach to unified storage software, Caringo Swarm7, that leverages emergent behavior where all nodes follow simple rules to automatically manage complexity as the solution grows while supporting all major cloud, file and storage protocols for instant access and analysis. Uncomplicated massive scaling through architectural innovations: a new, patent-pending, dynamically distributed index in RAM that instantly locates and accesses objects using zero IOPS, reducing multicasting to a secondary role and reducing CPU load by 50% at nominal scale. Architectural optimizations increase single cluster scale to over a hundred petabytes. Even faster post-problem recovery through rapid trimming. Faster rolling, no-downtime upgrades with a 300% decrease in node boot time. True parallel uploads for massive object sizes. Support for existing workloads and new use cases with unified storage interfaces: incorporates and leverages nearly a decade of experience with CAStor(TM), the pioneer of software-defined object storage. Caringo Swarm brings a shared pool of seamlessly scalable storage to the data center where customers can plug in the interface needed for any application use case. CloudScaler(R) for multi-tenant, S3-like storage, where users control security and performance behind their firewalls. FileScaler(TM) to support SMB and NFS file protocols on top of active archives with very large hierarchical namespaces. New BlockScaler(TM) for iSCSI support providing pure block over object - available in the third quarter of 2014. All interfaces, including the existing CloudScaler that supports HTTP and S3 API access, write to Caringo Swarm. One storage infrastructure to support both legacy and true cloud applications. Foundation for new data services through enhanced querying and Hadoop support: out-of-the-box Hadoop support. Caringo's original and innovative approach implements a true read-only Hadoop file system, offering a high-bandwidth pipe straight from the storage cluster that entirely eliminates the separate ingest step from archive or filer into HDFS. HDFS may still be used to hold intermediate results. Enhanced metadata indexer to improve performance and scale for full metadata ad-hoc queries. All-out attack on complexity, a shift to Caringo Swarm: Swarm is the only way to ensure uncomplicated scaling of capacity and throughput, and eliminate the complexity associated with legacy storage systems. There are no-single points of failure, no specialty nodes and no vulnerable metadata databases. The same software appliance code runs on all nodes. Nodes may be heterogeneous in model, brand and capability; they can be added and retired in flight.

Caringo Announces Major Upgrade to CloudScaler, Software to Extend Caringo's Object Storage with Authentication, Authorization, Metering and S3 API Support

Caringo announced a major upgrade to CloudScaler, software that extends Caringo's object storage with authentication, authorization, metering and S3 API support. Enterprises and service providers use CloudScaler with Caringo object storage software to deliver a rapidly scalable private or public cloud storage service that meets any storage SLA, supports the S3 API, and is easy to manage and expand. CloudScaler 3 enhancements: Plug into any management, billing or cloud orchestration solution via an open management RESTful API; Flexible identity management system support at the tenant and domain level designed for multi-tenant, single-site, MSP and reseller methods of service deployment; Enhanced ease of administration and reduced deployment footprint by supporting Caringo's native HTTP API and the S3 API simultaneously; and Streamlined deployment by enhancing the automated pre-flight checking of operating system setup, gateway configuration and object storage system. Caringo is the first to introduce the ability for anyone in the cloud community to verify interoperability with CloudScaler for applications that support the S3 API. Now organizations can run any S3 application with Caringo object storage behind their firewall where they have control, guarantee security and manage performance.
