Caringo for Hybrid Cloud Storage

Operational & Workflow Efficiencies for Private, Public & Hybrid Cloud

From an end-user’s perspective, the benefits of cloud storage are clear. The on-demand, pay-as-you-grow, endless-capacity characteristics are extremely attractive. However, service providers and IT administrators are now tasked with enabling these “benefits” as a service. Caringo Swarm provides everything you need for private, hybrid or public cloud services.

Multi-tenancy and data management
S3, NFS, HDFS, Azure blob & HTTP support
Robust metadata & search capabilities
Token-based & Enterprise ID (AD, LDAP, PAM)
Tier to Azure in native blob format
Scale on premise with any mix of x86 hardware


Offered as a complete software or hardware appliance, Swarm provides the foundation for a rapidly scalable cloud storage solution with infrastructure and tenant control for administrators, self-servicing and content search for employees. Swarm can be deployed in one or multiple sites with synchronous and asynchronous replication based on bandwidth speed and distance between data centers.

  • Rapidly deliver a cloud storage service to your employees, business units or partners
  • Snap into existing authentication and access control systems
  • Ensure compliance and security from user management to storage access
  • Seamlessly integrate with popular cloud orchestration platforms


Swarm enables Service Providers to benefit from operational efficiencies and unique features to deliver a competitive advantage that will increase subscribers, reduce churn and optimise OPEX and CAPEX spend. Bare metal deployment on any mix of x86 hardware, an unprecedented 95% hard drive capacity for content, 100% drive bay utilisation for content drives and industry-leading reliability are just a few of the reasons why BT, Telefónica, Greenhouse Data and others have selected Swarm as their Cloud Storage foundation.

  • Configure as Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service or Storage-as-a-Service
  • Differentiate cloud storage services with customizable SLAs and compliance features
  • Offer value-added services utilizing FileFly to tier from Windows Servers or NetApp File Servers and use SwarmNFS for legacy NFS support
  • Service-based pricing


Many organisations need to combine the economics and security of on-premise storage with the efficiency and additional services in Microsoft Azure. In typical gateway offerings, files move to Azure in an opaque form either unusable to Azure compute services or inaccessible from other protocols. Caringo Swarm Hybrid Cloud for Azure is different. By utilising a single namespace across S3, NFS, HDFS and Azure blobs, Swarm Hybrid Cloud for Azure combines the benefits of hassle-free, secure, scale-out, on-premise private cloud storage with the operational efficiencies of Microsoft Azure.

  • Access data via Caringo objects, S3, NFS and Azure blobs
  • Leverage Azure Compute Services
  • Instant Disaster Recovery to one of Azure’s geographically dispersed data centres
