Caringo Offers Content Router

AUSTIN, Texas -- Caringo, Inc., a leading provider of content storage software providing clustered storage infrastructure for both active and archive content, announced today the general availability of CAStor Content Router™ enabling organizations to distribute content based on business rules they define. The Content Router allows administrators and application providers the ability to set metadata values to mirror content in clusters, replicate over distance for disaster recovery (DR) as well as to intelligently distribute specific content to remote clusters such as at branch offices.

The Content Router leverages a powerful rules engine to filter metadata that defines how to process and where to store the content based on metadata values. Rules can be set to distribute content to specified remote clusters and ensure it is locally available to users at branch office or edge network locations or process content with third-party applications -- such as virus scanning, indexing, compression and encryption. It provides flexibility in configuration to roll-up content from clusters located at remote offices to a central facility in one-to-one, one-to-many or many-to-one scenarios. Applications can automatically fail-over to a remote cluster in an emergency to ensure continuous data availability and accessibility.

“IT organizations continue to grapple with storing the growing amount of unstructured content and the increasing challenge of protecting it,” said Mark Goros, Chief Executive Officer at Caringo. “CAStor Content Router allows these organizations to simplify the process of replicating and distributing content as an integrated component of a CAStor cluster to intelligently route unstructured data.”
