AUSTIN, TX – March 18, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Caringo® today announced that Data Deposit Box, a cloud backup and recovery provider that focuses on business protection for SMBs, has implemented a Caringo Swarm™ based object storage infrastructure to provide the capacity needed to fully service its rapidly increasing customer base.
Toronto-based Data Deposit Box had amassed over 60,000 customers since its launch in 2002, both directly and through its extensive network of more than 1,000 resellers and 100 MSPs. The company recently landed a large OEM deal that had the potential to increase its users and capacity needs by orders of magnitude in a very short period of time. To handle this rapid influx, Data Deposit Box looked for a scalable storage solution that could help it efficiently and cost effectively manage its growing customer base.
After evaluating a number of private and public object storage and cloud storage options, Data Deposit Box decided to go with Caringo Swarm. Swarm’s ease of management, reduction in costs and the ability to seamlessly scale storage in geographically dispersed data centers allowed Data Deposit Box to deliver on its promise of ensuring the highest levels of data protection.
“It’s all about the bottom line – less hardware, store more and spend less time managing it,” said Troy Cheeseman, President of Data Deposit Box. “With Caringo, you can manage multiple petabytes with one resource. This completely changes our ability to scale and grow to meet all of our client demands.”
Data Deposit Box’s former in-house solution was dispersed over 28 racks. Caringo Swarm enabled consolidation to 5 racks, an 82% reduction in footprint, leading to an OPEX savings of over $50,000 US per month. The company currently has over a Petabyte in multiple data centers utilizing Swarm’s automated protection functionality to store files through replication and erasure coding based on file size. Swarm also enabled Data Deposit Box to satisfy Canada’s strict privacy laws.
“Growth for any organization is a challenge if they are not equipped to properly maintain the customer experience that got them to that point,” said Adrian Herrera, Caringo VP of Marketing. “Data Deposit Box understood this dilemma and selected Swarm to help them provide the quality of service and security they are known for, while significantly reducing their on-going costs. We look forward to strengthening our partnership and helping them with their continued success and growth.”
