Caringo's management and self-healing technology offers a unified storage system with a single namespace.
storage specialist Caringo and CTERA Networks, a provider of hybrid cloud
storage and data protection solutions, announced that the companies have
integrated Caringo's CAStor object storage software with CTERA Cloud Attached
Storage gateways and CTERA Portal to provide cloud storage solutions.
Caringo object storage platform powered by CAStor is software that is designed
to enable big storage for unstructured data by utilizing any x86 server
hardware or any combination of hard drive type or size. Service providers using
Caringo as storage infrastructure for their cloud storage service can scale
incrementally up or down a single hard drive at a time and can upgrade and
retire hardware without service downtime. In addition, Caringo's management, optimization
and self-healing technology offers a unified storage system with a single
namespace that can scale to billions of objects and petabytes per location and
can be managed by a single system administrator.
with Caringo pairs our innovative CTERA Portal with the market-leading object
storage platform," said Liran Eshel, CEO and co-founder of CTERA Networks.
"Their highly automated approach, combined with our cloud storage gateways,
enables a cloud storage solution that can easily grow and deliver data
protection and file sharing with LAN-speed performance and end-to-end
Portal allows cloud service providers to offer hybrid on-premises/cloud storage
and data protection solutions to their small and midsize business (SMB) customers
and based on their cloud infrastructure of choice. Service providers can create
service plans, centrally managing all aspects of backup and recovery,
synchronize cloud and local drives, subscriber on-boarding, service
provisioning, status monitoring, billing and reporting. The CTERA Portal also
works with the company's line of cloud storage gateway appliances and managed
key characteristics to look for in a cloud storage solution are the ability to
easily and cost-effectively manage infrastructure and service utilization,"
said Mark Goros, CEO at Caringo. "We achieve this through our partnership by
combining Caringo's highly automated and self-optimizing object storage with
CTERA's robust cloud storage gateways and portal."
Kearns, executive vice president of operations at CloudSilo, a cloud service
provider based in Tucson, Ariz., said his company is looking forward to the
opportunity to scale up its cloud storage offering with the integrated
CTERA-Caringo solution. "With the combined solution, we'll be able to offer
cloud storage services to a growing number of businesses and channel partners,
and meet demand as it grows," he said.
