Our customers use Object Storage to store and retrieve any amount of data from anywhere

Alfred Object Storage is our connector between Alfresco and object storage. Currently, we support Caringo SWARM and Amazon S3. By using object storage, customers simplify backup and restore, and add availability and long term durability to the Alfresco content services. Content is transparently stored and retrieved between SWARM and S3 object stores.

Malware, ransomware, and crypto-locking are a daily threat, not a virtual menace. Enterprise content repositories need to defend the integrity of content in any possible manner.

This paper describes how Xenit secured documents for a Belgium-based insurance company, managed through Alfresco open source Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and stored on Caringo Swarm object storage.

Alfred Object Connector is delivered as an Alfresco Module Package or an Alfresco Simple Module, and it replaces the standard Alfresco file-system based storage with an Object store. Suitable for:

Large and active archives with data protection, management and search capabilities

Hybrid Storage with DRP in the cloud

Secure and encrypted long term preservation and compliance

Caringo Swarm provides a platform for data protection, retention, and management at massive scale. You no longer need to migrate data into disparate solutions for long-term preservation, delivery, and analysis. Consolidate all files on Swarm, find the data you are looking for quickly, and reduce the total cost of ownership by continuously evolving hardware and optimizing the use of your resources.

Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) is an object storage service that offers industry-leading scalability, data availability, security, and performance. This means customers of all sizes and industries can use it to store and protect any amount of data for a range of use cases, such as websites, mobile applications, backup and restore, archive, enterprise applications, IoT devices, and big data analytics. Amazon S3 provides easy-to-use management features so you can organize your data and configure finely-tuned access controls to meet your specific business, organizational, and compliance requirements. Amazon S3 is designed for 99.999999999% (11 9's) of durability, and stores data for millions of applications for companies all around the world.

Likewise for Amazon S3, we support all basic object operations, and the connector works transparently over SWARM, often deployed on premise, and AWS S3 object stores in the Amazon cloud.
