Caringo Adds Seamless Disaster Recovery Service Powered by Wasabi (CDSA)


Caringo announced the launch of the Swarm Cloud DR managed service, powered by Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage. The combined solution leverages the enterprise data protection methods that have always been present in Swarm with the ability to instantly add a remote Disaster Recovery site powered by Wasabi.

The Swarm Cloud DR service is offered as a 3-year add-on to an existing Swarm deployment or Swarm Server Appliance purchase and includes customizable backup to any one of Wasabi’s globally distributed data centers with no egress fees and recovery management service by Caringo.

Caringo Swarm, market-hardened at version 11.2, is software-defined object storage that provides an S3-compatible, on-prem platform for data protection, management, organization and search at massive scale for unstructured data (e.g., photos, videos and files).

“Many of our customers don’t have a secondary data center but have a requirement to store a copy of data offsite,” said Tony Barbagallo, Caringo CEO. “Cloud storage paired with on-prem storage is an ideal solution, and, when looking at services to integrate with, Wasabi offered an excellent mix of reliability and predictable costs.”

Wasabi delivers hot cloud storage technology that is a fraction of the price of Amazon S3 and faster than the competition with no fees for egress or API requests. The Caringo and Wasabi storage solution is ideal for organizations that want to quickly and seamlessly add offsite replication for backup and disaster recovery.

“Each day, we produce more data than the day before; the ability to efficiently and securely store, manage and access that data is critical for business success,” said Dave Friend, Wasabi CEO. “With the combination of Caringo and Wasabi, customers can receive the best value in cloud storage while reaping the benefits of a hybrid approach.”
