Caringo Gets Open Source Interface for Enterprise Content Management and Archiving



AUSTIN, Texas--Caringo Inc., the leading provider of content storage software, today announced the availability of an interface between CAStor™ and Alfresco, a leading open source alternative for Enterprise Content Management that eliminates the cost and complexity of traditional ECM systems. XeniT, a valued member of the CaringoConnect developer community, built the interface and has registered it at Alfresco Forge.

The interface replaces the traditional file-system based document store of Alfresco enabling all content such as business records and documents to be stored in CAStor. End users store and retrieve documents using the standard Alfresco interfaces with no impact to their behavior. The solution delivers a comprehensive infrastructure to manage business critical content and ensure it is retained and preserved in a compliant storage repository. The interface implemented by XeniT, is in production at one of the largest Belgian insurance companies, which is managing three million documents and growing at a rapid pace.

“Today, organizations recognize that their business critical information and intellectual property are part of the explosion of digital content,” said Mark Goros, Chief Executive Officer at Caringo. “The open source interface between CAStor and Alfresco delivers the most cost-effective solution for managing and archiving file content across the enterprise. It demonstrates the value of the CaringoConnect Developer Program that empowers developers and systems integrators to quickly create solutions that satisfy customer requirements.”

CAStor’s unique software approach creates high-performance and massively scalable clustered storage on any standard server hardware. This provides customers with affordable content storage that can start with 1 terabyte and scale seamlessly into petabytes as your business grows. CAStor’s built-in archive features ensure retention and integrity to meet compliance mandates and come standard with the product for no additional charge. Integration and validation to CAStor is streamlined with CaringoConnect – our free developer program with over 40 members today that, provides a dedicated web portal, tools and documentation for developers.
