Software-Defined Solution Pairs High-Performance and High-Capacity Storage for Every Stage of the Media Workflow
Caringo, Inc. has announced a technology partnership with Pixit Media, certifying Caringo Swarm with the Pixit Media suite. The combined software-defined approach pairs Pixit Media’s PixStor and PixStor Ngenea Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM) solutions with the Caringo Swarm scale-out object storage platform—delivering performance, protection and access for every stage of the content workflow from creation to delivery and archive.
Caringo solves the issues associated with storing and protecting rapidly growing digital assets while keeping them online and accessible. With Caringo Swarm, you get many of the benefits of the cloud right in your own data center, including easy-to-manage limitless scale; instant access over HTTP, S3 and NFS for traditional in-network access; and direct-to-consumer streaming. All with built-in data protection and an architecture that protects from hacks and ransomware.
“Every M&E organization we talk to from production houses to networks and studios are struggling to provide high-performance, high-capacity storage infrastructure to keep pace with market demands,” said Tony Barbagallo, Caringo VP of Product. “Certification of Swarm with Pixit means that our object storage software—refined and hardened over the last decade—can be combined with Pixit’s entire product suite, leveraging a complete software-defined approach that can be tuned to any M&E workflow.”
PixStor is a high-performance, highly scalable, enterprise-class storage solution specifically designed for M&E workflows. Data moves seamlessly through many tiers of storage—from fast flash to cost-effective, high-capacity object storage. PixStor provides the performance needed for combined VFX, finishing and rendering workloads to run at maximum speed, while Pixstor Ngenea HSM intelligently tiers data to Caringo Swarm for nearline/backup and active archive.
“Pixit Media’s strategic partnership with Caringo is a critical extension to our multi-tier end-to-end storage workflow,” said Ben Leaver, Managing Director of Pixit Media. “Our customers can now take advantage of Caringo’s long proven object storage solutions designed to maximize scalability, reliability and security.”
The combined solution from Pixit Media and Caringo is deployed on software-defined, open-standard hardware with no vendor lock-in, providing media organizations an economic advantage and more purchasing power, both now and in the future.
Caringo will be at NAB Las Vegas April 9–12, 2018 where they will be exhibiting in booth SL11807. The NAB Show is the ultimate event for the media, entertainment and technology industry, showcasing ground-breaking innovation and powerful solutions for professionals looking to create, manage, deliver and monetize content on any platform.
