Caringo Inc., the provider of object storage software, has announced the successful integration of its Object Storage Platform powered by CAStor with Symantec Enterprise Vault 10, Symantec's newest email and content archiving software. The integration with the archiving software provides a long-term data retention solution that leverages Caringo's cloud architecture, bringing a vendor-neutral scale-out storage solution with automated protection and replication all at cloud economics.
Caringo is said to enable Symantec customers to save up to 40 per cent in total cost of ownership over NAS or tape by using standard x86 server hardware with any size hard drives, providing a unified storage system that can scale to billions of objects and hundreds of petabytes per location. Caringo's object storage approach also saves time and money in litigation support by delivering a WORM-capable storage repository with auditable access for adherence to even the most stringent regulations while still delivering instant access to data.
"By using our object storage software, any organisation can easily implement a highly secure and resilient storage target for Symantec Enterprise Vault 10 that scales by simply plugging in new drives, using their choice of hardware vendor and any size hard drive," said Mark Goros, Chief Executive Officer at Caringo. "What we are doing is bringing cloud architecture and cloud economics to Symantec Enterprise Vault 10 users which will enable them to not only keep up with their archive growth, but get ahead of it so that they can focus on their core business."
