Some of the world’s most challenging problems—including fighting diseases, increasing food production, battling climate change, and advancing Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning—are enabled by High-Performance Computing (HPC). A big part of HPC workflows is sharing data with distributed collaborators. Join us for a discussion on the challenges of managing and storing HPC data featuring the experts from Globus, a University of Chicago non-profit service. Topics will include:
--Why distributed collaborators are critical to expediting time to discovery
--How to provide direct access to computers, software, data and other resources
--Collaborative problem-solving and resource-brokering strategies
--How the largest research organizations in the world are enabling secure access to data
--The role of storage and access controls throughout HPC workflows
Caringo VP Marketing and Brews & Bytes host Adrian J Herrera will be joined by Eric Dey, Caringo Head of Product, Rachana Ananthakrishnan, Globus Head of Product, and Vas Vasiliadis, Globus Chief Customer Officer. They will share real-world examples of how Globus and Caringo have worked together to solve these problems and also discuss how current events are likely to shape the future of Research workflows.

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.

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.
