AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 9 -- Caringo Inc., the leading provider of content storage software enabling clustered storage for active and archive content, today announced the CAStor Content File Server (CFS), which provides standard file system access to CAStor content storage that can start at small capacities and scale out to meet the rampant growth of file-based data. It is a major breakthrough on the limitations of file count and storage capacity encountered by block-based NAS systems.
CFS is built on CAStor object-based storage clusters that allow the file system to grow to support hundreds of millions to billions of files spanning terabytes to petabytes of capacity. A POSIX compliant file system, CAStor CFS supports industry standard CIFS, NFS, Mac, FTP, WebDAV as well as the ability to be run as a native Linux file system. In addition to standard features such as full support of Active Directory and Access Control Lists, CFS offers other advanced functionality. Timescape provides a continuous snapshot allowing administrators to mount a file system at any point in time to recover deleted or overwritten files. CFS also provides administrators the ability to apply metadata attributes to set retention periods for compliance as well as smart content distribution and replication for disaster recovery.
"The overwhelming majority of new data being created is file-based and companies are challenged with growing cost and complexity," said Mark Goros, CEO at Caringo. "CAStor CFS enables customers to implement affordable file storage and scale on-demand for active workflows as well as archiving files within the same storage system. CAStor CFS eliminates the cost of multiple storage tiers and file migration software."
CAStor content storage software is based on third-generation content addressable storage technology. This unique approach to file or unstructured data storage enables implementation of a storage cluster that can scale from 1 terabyte to multiple petabytes as a single tier of storage while delivering near perfect scaling in performance. Its non-proprietary hardware approach provides customers the flexibility and freedom of choice to build an affordable storage infrastructure for content or file-based data.
Caringo Inc. is an innovative software provider focused on delivering the most advanced technology for accessing, storing and distributing content or file-based data. Its flagship product, CAStor, dramatically improves the scope and economics of content storage by enabling customers to implement robust storage clusters without being locked into proprietary hardware. Founded on the operating principle that things should be made as simple as possible and a customer-first focus, Caringo makes content and file storage affordable, scalable, fast and easy.

In quieter times, sounding the bell of funding big science with big systems tends to resonate further than when ears are already burning with sour economic and national security news. For exascale's future, however, the time could be ripe to instill some sense of urgency....
In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

The study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

At some point in the not-too-distant future, building powerful, miniature computing systems will be considered a hobby for high schoolers, just as robotics or even Lego-building are today. That could be made possible through recent advancements made with the Raspberry Pi computers.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
