October 28, 2010 –The 5.0 version of Caringo’s CAStor object storage platform includes a number of new features and enhancements designed for cloud implementations, including named objects, multi-tenancy, dynamic caching and remote data replication, according to an article posted on Enterprise Storage Forum.
Caringo officials note that named objects semantics are consistent with emerging cloud standards, and that named objects can be used in conjunction with Caringo’s existing system-assigned Universally Unique IDs (UUIDs).
In addition, user-generated named objects play into multi-tenancy. CAStor 5.0 allows IT organizations to host multiple departments or divisions within one physical private cloud, creating a common infrastructure for all applications, customers and departments.
CAStor 5.0 will be available in mid-November.
For more information on the enhancements in CAStor 5.0 (which is resold by Dell, among others), see “Caringo adds named objects, multi-tenancy to cloud platform” on Enterprise Storage Forum.
