Caringo Inc. has announced that Union Solutions, an expert in virtualized data center infrastructures, has selected the Caringo Object Storage cloud platform powered by CAStor®, to serve as the backend infrastructure of its new cloud storage service, StorPoint, targeted at customers looking for enterprise-grade content storage and data protection.

Union Solutions is leveraging the processing, storage and backup infrastructure at their data centers in Maidstone, Kent and Byfleet, Surrey to provide a highly scalable and secure cloud storage service.

Optional data replication between the two sites and transfer via HTTPS are supported for increased data protection.

The service can be accessed in one of three ways - through an HTTP interface, through standard storage protocols via Caringo’s Content File Server (CIFS, NFS, FTP and WebDAV), and through any of the numerous third party applications that have natively integrated Caringo object storage such as Symantec Enterprise Vault and CommVault Simpana.

Union evaluated various cloud storage solutions and chose the Caringo object storage platform because of its software-only approach, allowing configuration as a public cloud storage service, a hybrid cloud storage solution with integrated gateway, and/or a secure private cloud storage solution that can be located in a customer’s datacenter.

In addition, the Caringo platform is built on a true object storage foundation, without a file system, enabling massive scale of both object count and storage capacity per location without degradation in performance.

“We chose Caringo to enable our cloud storage service because their software helps us achieve our vision of a completely virtualized, totally dynamic data center,” said Rick Russ, Director of Union Solutions.

Russ continued, “Caringo’s highly automated approach significantly reduces our management effort. We look forward to strengthening our partnership with them.”

“There are many storage technologies that can be used as the infrastructure behind a cloud storage service but only object storage provides the ease of management, performance, integrity and scale necessary,” said Mark Goros, CEO at Caringo.

Goros continued, “Union Solutions understood this because they are experts in virtualization and automation which are key enablers of our platform. We are very excited to have them as both a customer and a partner.”

In addition to the cloud storage service, Union Solutions has also become a Caringo reseller, offering object storage solutions to organizations throughout the United Kingdom.
