Caringo has launched a major upgrade to CloudScaler, software that extends Caringo’s object storage with authentication, authorization, metering, and S3 API support. CloudScaler 3 enhancements include:

  • Ability to plug into any management, billing or cloud orchestration solution via an open management RESTful API
  • Flexible identity management system support at the tenant and domain level designed for multi-tenant, single-site, MSP and reseller methods of service deployment
  • Enhanced ease of administration and reduced deployment footprint by supporting Caringo’s native HTTP API and the S3 API simultaneously
  • Streamlined deployment by enhancing the automated pre-flight checking of operating system setup, gateway configuration, and object storage system

Caringo S3 Application Verification Program
With the S3 Verification Program, Caringo has introduced the ability for anyone in the cloud community to verify interoperability with CloudScaler for applications that support the S3 API. Now organizations can run any S3 application with Caringo object storage behind their firewall where they have control, guarantee security, and manage performance.

The Caringo S3 Application Verification Program:

  • Is open to anyone who would like to verify interoperability between their S3 applications and Caringo object storage
  • Validators will be given free access to a testing account with all necessary credentials and quick verification guide
  • Once verified and approved, the application, along with attribution to the validator will be listed on Caringo’s website

“In working with some of the world’s largest enterprises and service providers on private and public cloud storage deployments, there was a clear need for storage software that can plug into various management solutions on the back-end and also plug into various applications on the front-end,” says Mark Goros, CEO of Caringo. “With the launch of CloudScaler 3 and the S3 Verification Program, Caringo takes a major step in solving these issues by making both service management and deployment easier for IT administrators and use of the service easier for their end users.”
