Caringo Announces Swarm Hybrid Cloud for Microsoft AzureSeptember 27, 2017
Caringo announced today the availability of Caringo Swarm Hybrid Cloud for Microsoft Azure, allowing its customers to replicate files from S3, NFS, and HDFS to Azure in the Azure native Blob format. By seamlessly converting files from an S3 object, Caringo object, Azure Blob or NFS accessible file, you can send files to Azure for analysis, protection and long-term archive.
Most organizations are quickly outgrowing their traditional network attached storage (NAS) and storage area network (SAN) devices and data growth continues to outpace storage resources and strain budgets. Organizations need to combine the security of a private cloud with the efficiency and additional services of a public cloud. Caringo Swarm Hybrid Cloud for Microsoft Azure provides the flexibility and agility to execute computing tasks, while keeping the most vital components behind your company’s firewall.
"The rate of innovation happening with the value-added compute service by Microsoft along with the sheer magnitude of the underlying infrastructure are operational benefits an organization cannot replicate within their own data center," said Jonathan Ring, Caringo CEO and Co-founder. "Swarm Hybrid Cloud for Microsoft Azure allows users to benefit from these services while also using Azure for Disaster Recovery."
Tad Brockway, General Manager of Azure Storage, Microsoft Corp. said, "In typical hybrid cloud gateway solutions, files move to Microsoft Azure in an opaque form, either unusable to Azure compute services or inaccessible from other protocols. The Caringo solution transfers files ingested via S3 or NFS to Azure in native Blob format so users benefit from the power of Azure compute services, data-protection, and long-term archives."
Caringo Swarm Hybrid Cloud Object Storage is the foundation for simple, bulletproof, limitless storage solutions across several verticals, including M&E, HPC, Financial, Insurance and Government. By integrating with Azure Blob storage, Caringo delivers a complete hybrid cloud solution that offers the best of on-premises and cloud-based storage to use Azure compute services, as well as data protection, disaster recovery, and long-term archive.
