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.

FileFly is the solution you need for complete, automated and flexible data lifecycle management of unstructured data—from creation to preservation. Working with both NetApp and Windows filers, FileFly allows you to set policies that guide the level and target of file data movement based on your organization’s requirements. Senior Consultants John Bell and Tony Lokko explain how FileFly works and can now be used with any of the Big 3 cloud providers (Azure, Google and Amazon) as well as Caringo Swarm Object Storage. They will demonstrate use of FileFly and have a live Q&A session so you can learn from their extensive experience in architecting, deploying and managing storage solutions.

Digital video and M&E workflows are changing rapidly driven by distributed workforces and on-demand content consumption. In this webinar, you will learn how to stream content directly from storage, how to set up multi-site content distribution for collaboration, how to unify file system (NFS) and RESTful (S3) workloads, and the pros and cons of using object storage vs tape.
Metadata is data about the data, but how does it work with object storage? What benefits can you reap by using metadata, and do all object storage solutions use metadata the same way? In this Tech Tuesday webinar, Ryan Meek will take a deep dive on metadata and explain how it can be used to unlock the intelligence potential that resides in large data repositories.
John Bell, Sr. Consultant & Brian Guetzlaff, Engineering Manager
In this webinar, John Bell and Brian Guetzlaff will explore the advanced capabilities of Caringo Swarm’s Content Management API, including managing user access, usage and content (using collections and metadata). They will provide a live demonstration and show you how to use the Swarm Object Storage Content Portal User Interface (UI). Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask questions throughout the webinar.

Video production workflows are evolving rapidly to satisfy on-demand requirements. Production timelines are compressing and content needs to remain online and accessible for indefinite lengths of time. This has introduced the need for more “tiers” of storage. In this webinar, Nicholas Smith, JB&A Director of Media Technology, and Adrian “Aj” Herrera, Caringo, VP of Marketing, will give an overview of the 5 tiers of storage for any new video production workflows—covering super-fast storage for editing to economical storage on-prem or in the cloud and everything in between.
John Bell, Sr. Consultant and Michael “Q” Brame, Quality Engineering Lead
Do you need to securely store data and access it via NFS? In this webinar, John Bell and Michael Brame will discuss using NFS with object storage and explain how this has been handled by traditional file-to-object gateways. They will also do a live demo of Caringo SwarmNFS—the first lightweight file protocol converter to bring the benefits of scale-out object storage to NFSv4, seamlessly integrating files and object storage.
John Bell, Sr. Consultant and Brian Guetzlaff, UI Engineer
Join Sr. Consultant John Bell and UI Engineer Brian Guetzlaff for a tour and demo using the Swarm Object Storage user interface (UI) to manage a storage cluster. They will also provide insight into the management API that underpins the user interface and discuss the capabilities of the platform.

Massive scalability is one thing, but what if you want to run Object-Based Storage for a smaller shop? Can you start with a small hardware investment and run object-based storage on just one server? John Bell, Sr. Consultant, and Jamshid Afshar, Caringo Engineer, will explain how you can store, manage, search and deliver data with just one server, while maintaining the ability to scale out by simply plugging in additional servers as your data storage needs grow. They will explain how this “pay-as-you-grow” model can benefit organizations as they start to outgrow traditional SAN, NAS and Tape storage solutions.
Tony Barbagallo, CEO & Adrian Herrera, VP 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.
Tony Barbagallo, CEO & Adrian Herrera, VP Marketing
Just what is object storage? CEO Tony Barbagallo and VP Marketing Adrian “AJ” Herrera get back to basics to explain what object storage is, how it compares to traditional file and block storage, and when object storage is the right solution for your data center. Tony and AJ will explore the challenges with data that motivate organizations to adopt object storage such as risk of data loss, data growth, the limitations of traditional technologies, and the expectation of always-on and accessible storage. They will explain how object storage can help organizations overcome these challenges by eliminating inefficient data silos and providing continuous built-in data protection, searchability and management capabilities.
John Bell, Senior Consultant & Ben Canter, VP Global Sales

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.
Caringo was founded in 2005 to change the economics of storage by designing software from the ground up to solve the issues associated with relentless data growth. Caringo’s flagship product, Swarm, decouples data from applications and hardware providing a foundation for continued data access and analysis that continuously evolves while guaranteeing data integrity. Today, Caringo software-defined object storage solutions are used to preserve and provide access to rapidly scaling data sets across many industries.
