Caringo Provides Clustered Storage Solution for CMWare!


AUSTIN, Texas, May 20th, 2008 – Caringo Inc., a leading provider of content storage software that delivers clustered storage infrastructure for active and archive content, today announced that its CAStor™ software was selected by CMWare as the primary storage solution behind the company’s skyTuneZ service, a hosted service that allows users to store, access and share their personal media files from the web and their mobile phones.

Available through a number of distribution channels and directly to consumers, skyTuneZ allows customers to upload and access rich media files including music, photos and video from anywhere, at any time. The service needs to provide reliable and continuously available access to stored files that can easily and affordably scale as demand dictates. CMWare chose CAStor based on its proven capability to meet these requirements. The CAStor storage cluster, with its native HTTP interface is ideally suited for Internet service offerings and Web 2.0 companies that require a simple and affordable storage infrastructure to support their business models.

“We were looking to create a centralized storage space where skyTuneZ users could upload and host their media files and with CAStor we have a level of control over our customers’ data that we simply wouldn’t have had with outsourced storage services,” said Jim Ryan, CMWare CEO. “CAStor installed quickly and easily, and will allow us to scale as demand of skyTuneZ grows. It was simply the right storage solution for us.”

“Companies, like CMWare, are finding that CAStor is an ideal way to solve their needs for active content serving while minimizing the costs and management issues of traditional storage systems,” said Mark Goros, CEO of Caringo. “Implementation is fast and easy as is increasing storage capacity. Companies retain complete control of their content while allowing them to focus their time and energies on core competencies.”

CAStor runs on standard, commodity server hardware, which enables companies to implement a cost-effective clustered storage solution. It delivers the performance needed to serve large communities of users accessing large collections of active content with the self-managing and self-healing functionality that minimizes administrative overhead.

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them. I trust…
