Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

The Evolution of File

Over a decade ago, API-accessible key/value-based storage was introduced as a service by Amazon and as software by Caringo. Amazon’s service-based approach matured quickly, while the general storage market slowly adopted the API approach. The on-premise market demanded a traditional file interface, leading to various “gateway” products. However, for the majority of use cases, the logical file gateway architecture is flawed. Is it time for file to evolve with object? This webinar examines the past decade in file interface gateways and the needs of the market versus what is available.

  • High-Performance + High-Capacity Storage for Every Stage of the Media Workflow Recorded: Sep 6 2018 62 mins
    Barry Evans, Pixit Media CTO & Adrian Herrera, Caringo VP of Marketing
    Changes in content creation workflows and access patterns of content creators and end users are stressing every aspect of the traditional Media & Entertainment (M&E) storage workflow. Do you invest in high-performance storage first, or enable protection, distribution and petabyte scale with object storage? How much of each solution is needed and how can you predict usage and growth to properly size each solution? And once you do this, how do you ensure operability throughout the entire M&E workflow from creation to management to archive? In this webinar Barry Evans, Pixit Media’s CTO and Adrian Herrera, Caringo’s VP of Marketing will demonstrate how to solve these challenges through a complete software-defined storage (SDS) approach combining Pixit Media’s PixStor and PixStor Ngenea Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM) solutions with the Caringo Swarm scale-out object storage platform.

  • Tech Tuesday: Object Storage for High-Performance Computing Recorded: Jul 17 2018 43 mins
    John Bell, Senior Consultant & Pat Ray, Integration Engineering Lead
    When it comes to High-Performance Computing (HPC), the volume of data that comprises data sets can easily over-burden primary storage. When that happens, performance and speed are compromised and research and business objectives are at risk. As data sets continue to grow, more and more HPC organizations are turning to object storage technology to build active archives. Learn how adding cost-effective object storage into your storage infrastructure can reduce storage TCO, provide continuous data protection, and give you the power of metadata so you can quickly retrieve data when you need it.
  • Slash Storage TCO for Rapidly Scaling Data Sets Recorded: Jun 21 2018 57 mins
    Glen Olsen, Caringo Product Manager & Krishna Subramanian, Komprise COO
    The nature of enterprise data is rapidly changing and existing storage infrastructures can’t keep up. Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices were designed for performance and single-site collaboration but file creation and access is different now. Many turn to the cloud to offload data, however, for rapidly scaling data sets, daily transfer rates and bandwidth constraints are an issue. In addition, some sensitive information can’t leave your data center. Komprise and Caringo have partnered to solve these issues by pairing intelligent data management technology with hassle-free, limitless storage.

    Attend this webinar to learn how you can slash TCO for rapidly scaling data sets by identifying data to move from NAS. Then securely transferring it based on value to Caringo Swarm scale-out object storage were it is protected without backups and instantly and securely available internally or externally.
  • When to Choose Object Storage over NAS for Digital Video Workflows Recorded: Jun 19 2018 44 mins
    John Bell, Senior Consultant & Jose Juan Gonzalez, Engineer
    To keep pace with today’s media and digital asset management workflows, you need a cost-effective secondary tier of storage (active archive) that provides instant accessibility and unrelenting data protection—while scaling to store petabytes of unstructured data and billions of files. Caringo Senior Consultant John Bell and Engineer Jose Juan Gonzalez will explain how object storage (using NoSQL, unstructured methods of search like Elasticsearch, and advanced metadata and content management capabilities) can be used to build this active archive and will illustrate use with a live demo of how Caringo Swarm integrates with leading industry tools such as the CatDV media asset management (MAM).
