Caringo Rolls Out CloudScaler 3 and a Verification Program
Caringo, a storage software provider, made two enhancements to its product portfolio: version 3 of its CloudScaler cloud storage service and a new application verification program.
CloudScaler, in combination with CAStor software, helps enterprises and service providers manage and expand their public or private cloud storage. New features in version 3 include flexible support for identity management systems, streamlined deployment, and the ability to plug in to any management, billing, or cloud orchestration solution using an API.
The verification program allows anyone in the cloud community to verify interoperability with CloudScaler for applications that support Amazon’s S3 API. Caringo gives interested users a free testing account to verify interoperability, and once they’re verified and approved, they can run any S3 application and use Caringo’s object storage behind their firewall to maintain control, security, and performance.
“In working with some of the world’s largest enterprises and service providers on private and public cloud storage deployments, there was a clear need for storage software that can plug into various management solutions on the back-end and also plug into various applications on the front-end,” according to Mark Goros, Caringo’s CEO and founder. Caringo helps solve these problems “by making both service management and deployment easier for IT administrators and use of the service easier for their end users.”
