Caringo Inc. was founded in 2005 and specializes in storage solutions using an object type file system. Their Hybrid Cloud Object Storage stands out for being highly scalable with elastic content protection.

The cloud storage product from Caringo is an enterprise storage solution that's characterized by an easily scalable cluster of hardware nodes. Caringo Swarm allows for fast hardware expansion as the system recognizes new nodes without the need for additional configurations. The Swarm technology also allows easy querying across the entire storage base. Administrators use a unified web console from which they can set hierarchical data protection and delegate control to third parties.

Backup4all can access your Caringo Swarm storage through the S3 protocol.
