CAStor, an object storage software engine developed by Caringo, is accessible via Apache CloudStack storage API. The codes of the technology have been submitted to the Apache Software Foundation.
Caringo has announced seamless integration of its core technology, CAStor, in enterprise ready object store for Apache CloudStack 4.0.
Citrix CloudPlatform provides the most robust open source software platform for highly scalable and reliable cloud computing environments and is currently deployed in some of the world's largest enterprises.
"When architecting a complete cloud solution, object storage is critical," said Kevin Kluge, VP of Products at Citrix. "Object storage combines elements of web serving and traditional storage in a highly scalable solution that can quickly recover from any failure, making it ideal as the main storage target for unstructured data stored by Apache CloudStack. We are pleased that Caringo has submitted its CloudStack integration to the Apache Software Foundation as it gives all Apache CloudStack users open access to one of the most robust and scalable object storage engines on the market."
The addition of Caringo object storage powered by CAStor enables these organizations to benefit from unrivaled data durability without backups and RAID through Elastic Content protection that enables the ability to set the level of 9s per object and optimize for access or footprint.
Mark Goros, CEO of Caringo said in a statement, “Content storage results in the largest data center footprint in any cloud service which is why administrators need to think about how they will refresh their hardware over time in addition to scalability, We are pleased to bring our software to CloudStack users and are committed to continuing to fulfill our mutual customers' most pressing storage needs.”
