Caringo Adds Open Source

AUSTIN, Texas -- Caringo Inc., the leading provider of content storage software, today announced the availability of an interface between CAStor and Alfresco, a leading open source alternative for Enterprise Content Management that eliminates the cost and complexity and of traditional ECM systems. XeniT, a valued member of the CaringoConnect developer community, built the interface and has registered it at Alfresco Forge.

The interface replaces the traditional file-system based document store of Alfresco enabling all content such as business records and documents to be stored in CAStor. End users store and retrieve documents using the standard Alfresco interfaces with no impact to their behavior. The solution delivers a comprehensive infrastructure to manage business critical content and ensure it is retained and preserved in a compliant storage repository. The interface implemented by XeniT, is in production at one of the largest Belgian insurance companies, which is managing three million documents and growing at a rapid pace.

“Today, organizations recognize that their business critical information and intellectual property are part of the explosion of digital content,” said Mark Goros, Chief Executive Officer at Caringo. “The open source interface between CAStor and Alfresco delivers the most cost-effective solution for managing and archiving file content across the enterprise. It demonstrates the value of the CaringoConnect Developer Program that empowers developers and systems integrators to quickly create solutions that satisfy customer requirements.”
