Austin, Texas (PRWEB) April 29, 2009
Caringo Inc., the leading provider of clustered storage software for accessing, storing and distributing content, today announced the release of CAStor 3.0, featuring storage node virtualization. Now, using multi-core processors, customers can run virtual CAStor nodes in a single, physical server chassis. CAStor Cluster in a Box optimizes the high density servers businesses are clamoring for today. To kick off the advances in CAStor 3.0, Caringo is offering a download of 4 terabytes of storage capacity allowing technology professionals to experience its simplicity, scalability and reliability.
CAStor 3.0 is designed to optimize today's high-density servers that come with as many as twenty-four hard drives for scale-out file and cloud storage. Assign a portion of the drives within a server to each virtual CAStor node to optimize efficiency and experience screaming performance. As an example, one server with twenty-four 1TB drives and a quad-core processor becomes four 6TB nodes or a virtual Storage Cluster in a Box. CAStor 3.0 includes an updated and streamlined administrative console with simple cluster-wide management of physical and virtual storage nodes.
