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.

As organizations start to figure out how to work in these unprecedented times, one thing is clear—processes that used to be easy are now quite convoluted with procedures to minimize risks. From not being able to easily go to a particular site to sanitization and social-distancing requirements, creating new content is far more complex and costs more than it used to. Is there an overlooked solution to create new content while reducing costs? Can you gain an advantage by using an active archive? In this Brews & Bytes episode, we will discuss:
--How content production has changed in the era of COVID-19
--How to leverage active archives for repurposing and reuse and the impact of making content archives “active”
--How organizations are making archives searchable and accessible to supplement workflows
Caringo VP Marketing and Brews & Bytes host Adrian J Herrera will be joined by Ben Canter, Caringo VP of Sales, and Liz Davis, VP Media Workflow of Diversified—a leading technology integrator in digital media, collaboration, security and OTT solutions.

If you’re evaluating your current disaster recovery (DR) strategy or developing a new one, you’re probably considering the best way to incorporate cloud storage. There are a number of factors that contribute to why you should consider using cloud storage. Maybe you don’t want to build and staff another data center right now; or, perhaps you want to decommission your secondary center without spinning up a new cloud disaster recovery (DR) site. Or, maybe you’ve just outgrown your current solution.
Tune in to our next Tech Tuesday webinar where Ryan Meek, Principal Solutions Architect, and Jose Marcos, Sales Engineer, discuss strategies for incorporating cloud (public, private and hybrid) into your storage architecture. Bringing expertise from working on hundreds of storage deployments, Ryan and Jose will explain how you can easily:
--Tier data to a DR site using automated policies
--Reduce risk and cost by using a deep storage archive for DR
--Use the cloud to simplify your storage DR
--Leverage Caringo’s expertise in data recovery processes
The webinar will include a demonstration of Caringo’s new Swarm Cloud DR powered by Wasabi and a live Q&A session.

In a few years when we reflect on this decade, it will be clear that it was the decade where video overtook all other forms of media as the main educational and entertainment vehicle. Every major video on-demand service, feature film, viral video, news network and now classroom relies on video content. Add a sudden shift to remote workflows and those in charge of creating, producing and delivering content now need to be able to find the videos they need on their own, from a distributed site. In this Brew & Bytes episode, we will discuss:
--How video production has changed the last decade and what a video archive looks like for various sizes of organizations
--The impact of remote workflows and how different organizations are approaching the new norm
--The role of remote access and AI-driven video search, and the importance of finding videos when they are needed
Caringo VP Marketing and Brews & Bytes host Adrian J Herrera will be joined by Ryan Meek, Caringo Principal Solutions Architect, and Sam Bogoch, CEO of axle.ai, a leading software platform for remote access and video search. They will share real-world examples of how these capabilities have evolved over the last decade.

When you integrate the use of containers with object storage, it expands on the benefits of both technologies while removing the requirement for dedicated servers. This enables potential new use cases for object storage such as:
--Mobile video (e.g., sportscasting and video editing on site)
--Mobile army hospitals and regional health systems (such as ambulances)
--Workflows in public clouds (such as Azure, Amazon and Wasabi)
--Complex needs such as local storage for telemetry with async feed to the hub
--Edge clusters for IoT
On this Tech Tuesday webinar, Ryan Meek, Principal Solutions Architect, hosts Jamshid Afshar, Caringo’s lead on all things Container, to share how a containerized, auto-configured Caringo environment comes up quickly and reliably. They will also discuss how containers can be used for continuous integration testing and deployment, all-in-one laptop environments, demos, customer setups or reproductions and production rollouts.

Workflows that deal with big files and big storage capacities are difficult to move to a distributed or remote method of processing. Along with the difficulty in transferring large files to various sites, you need to deal with storing, protecting and accessing those files in an economical way. In this episode of Brews and Bytes, Robert Browne from Signiant joins Caringo’s TW Cook and host Adrian J Herrera to discuss these questions:
--What are the problems you need to look out for when transferring large files locally or globally?
--What are the issues you may encounter storing 100s of Terabytes of files?
--How about 100s of Petabytes?
--Is there such a thing as files and storage being too big for remote workflows?

StorageDNA CEO Tridib (TC) Chakravarty, Caringo Principal Solutions Architect Ryan Meek & VP Marketing Adrian J Herrera
There are many ways organizations, analysts and vendors categorize storage. Once you get past the techno-babble, the lowest common denominators amongst storage methods lead to 3 categories:
1) frequently accessed data
2) moderately accessed data
3) infrequently accessed data.
In this second episode of Brews & Bytes, we will take a closer look at categories 2 and 3, which we are calling “economical” storage.
This conversation goes beyond just talking $/GB. Our guests Tridib Chakravarty (aka TC), the CEO of Storage DNA, and Ryan Meek, Caringo’s Principal Solutions Architect, will discuss challenges organizations are facing finding economical storage, how they are determining what data can be moved to different tiers of storage, and the pros and cons of different types of economical storage options.
