The volume of data that comprises High-Performance Computing (HPC) data sets is exploding, resulting in compromised performance and speed and putting research and business objectives at risk. In this webinar, hear how Swarm Object Storage Solutions are being used by organizations such as the UK STFC Scientific Computing Department to:
--Streamline data management and access
--Reduce storage TCO up to 75%
--Provide continuous data protection
John Bell, Sr. Consultant & Sarah Cook, Marketing Director
Swarm provides robust mechanisms to ensure that data integrity is maintained once an object is created in storage. However, we often get questions such as:
--How do I confirm that data initially written to Swarm wasn’t corrupted in transit (e.g., due to network errors)?
--When moving data from a different storage solution into Swarm, how do I verify that content wasn’t corrupted or lost in the process?
Learn how Caringo Swarm Object Storage provides end-to-end message integrity checks of your content as it is sent to and returned from the Swarm cluster. There will be a live demonstration and Q&A at the conclusion of the presentation.

Organizations across all industries are struggling with enabling instant on-demand access to archived video. Workflows relied upon for years, based on tape, are becoming too difficult to manage and video assets are taking longer and longer to recall. The cloud is an option but compounding recurring costs, bandwidth limitations and asset security are valid concerns. The solution is on-prem object storage. In this webinar, you will learn how to plug object storage into digital asset management solutions via the Amazon S3 interface. You will also learn how to consolidate video archives, enable private streaming and provide video-on-demand (VOD) directly from the archive layer.
John Bell, Sr. Consultant & Eric Dey, Director of Product
While the S3 protocol has become the de facto choice for cloud and object storage, there can be important details that your storage vendor isn’t telling you. Are there bottlenecks or scaling problems waiting for you in a year or two? Should you be asking for more than "just S3" for unlocking value from your data? Our experts discuss these secret details and explain how Caringo’s storage solution gives you S3 along with the other pieces necessary to meet your evolving storage needs.
