Caringo Offers 100 TB Swarm Object Storage License to M&E Firms

Scale-out cloud and object storage platform firm Caringo Aug. 29 announced it’s begun offering a fully featured, 100 TB license of its Swarm object storage system to media and entertainment companies, with no upfront cost. The hope is that content companies looking for better ways to store, manage and protect their growing library of digital assets will make quick use of the free scale-out storage offering, and look for more, according to Adrian Herrera, VP of marketing for Caringo.

“IT execs in the M&E space are under extreme pressure to provide long-term accessible storage and instant search and delivery to customers and viewers,” Herrera said. “The cloud isn’t a viable option for many because of security and cost concerns. The solution to this is using the same technology that powers major clouds — object storage, secure in their data center. With our announcement today, we are making it easy for qualified firms to get started by offering 100 terabytes of storage for free.”

Movie and recording studios, content creation and post-production houses and broadcasters are all welcome to apply via

Currently, Caringo Swarm is used to secure and store digital asset libraries for the Department of Defense, Department of Justice, BT, iQ Media, Johns Hopkins University, British Telecom, NEP and others.
