AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Caringo® announced today that its Swarm, software defined object storage, has been chosen as a finalist in TechTarget's Product of the Year in the Storage System Software category. TechTarget editors highlighted the following as a few reasons for selection, "Caringo boosted the product's performance and optimized the architecture to increase single-cluster scalability…product improvements include a dynamically distributed index to facilitate instant access to objects and reduce CPU load…parallel uploading; and enhanced Hadoop support [were also added]."
Caringo Swarm aggressively eliminates the cost, scale and management issues associated with legacy storage and radically simplifies access to data when and where it is needed. Swarm leverages emergent behavior where all nodes follow simple rules to automatically manage complexity while supporting all major cloud, file and storage protocols. The result is a web-scale solution that goes beyond basic object storage by encapsulating data and metadata while eradicating the reliance on file systems. Data is unlocked from applications, hardware and location delivering a foundation for continued data access and analysis that continuously evolves while guaranteeing data integrity.

TechTarget's nomination and our continued customer satisfaction validate our efforts and we are pleased to be included in the finalists for this prestigious award."
