Caringo Selected 2017 Product of the Year Finalist in TechTarget’s Data Storage Management Tools Category

Caringo, Inc. announced that Caringo FileFly 2.0 Secondary Storage Platform has been chosen as a finalist in TechTarget’s Storage magazine and SearchStorage.com 2017 Product of the Year awards in the Data Storage Management Tools category. Caringo FileFly enables the efficient migration of data from Microsoft® Windows® Servers or NetApp® Filers to a limitless secondary pool of self-healing storage on commodity servers powered by Caringo® Swarm Scale-Out Hybrid Storage. The company’s Swarm product was similarly honored in 2014, as was the original FileFly™ for Swarm in 2015 and SwarmNFS in 2016.

Finalists were judged by a panel comprised of a cross-section of users, analysts, consultants and Storage magazine and SearchStorage.com editors. The products are rated according to their innovation, performance, ease of integration, ease of use, functionality and value. Results will be published in the February issue of Storage magazine and online.

FileFly 2.0 is critical in enabling organizations to scale storage to multiple petabytes and trillions of files, optimize filers, and consolidate files across multiple locations—all while driving down total cost of ownership and acquisition. It allows organizations to take advantage of today’s cloud-like storage infrastructure with no application changes and while retaining transparent end-user file access.

“We appreciate being recognized by TechTarget as having provided one of the top data management products of the year with our latest nomination for the FileFly 2.0 Secondary Storage Platform,” said Tony Barbagallo, VP Product of Caringo. “This really validates the growing need for our data management capabilities and that we are meeting the needs of a quickly evolving marketplace.
