Caringo greases up CAStor product, slips out VM versions

File access to objects

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Object storage startup Caringo has introduced virtual machine editions of its CAStor object storage product along with standard file protocol access to CAStor, broaching the question whether object storage will just become file storage under another name.

Both CAStor and Caringo's Content File Server (CFS) come as virtual machines (VMs) that run on any Windows server under VMware ESX and VMware Player and on Macs via VMware Fusion. The CFS VM can also run on Oracle VirtualBox (Windows or Mac). The idea is that potential customers can try out the Caringo products as the VMs can be downloaded with a free 2TB licence.

The supported file protocols are CIFS, NFS, FTP, and WebDAV. Recently Scality has announced file access to its object storage Ring. It might become the case that object storage becomes another and different way of storing files, taking advantage of the technology's scalability. ®
