Health & Performance Graphs
View performance and the health of infrastructure for administrative purposes.
Management APIs provide integration paths into an enterprise’s DevOps for automated provisioning and life-cycle management for tenants, end-users, and their content.
Data and Infrastructure Management Services
Files can be accessed across a single namespace through multiple protocols including NFS, SMB, Amazon S3 and Swarm HTTP.
Single or Multi-Site
Swarm supports single or multi-site deployments (synchronous or asynchronous replication) to satisfy a broad range of use cases and business requirements. Sites can have different hardware configurations and protection schemes.
Security & Compliance
Security scales from simple user-based access to a full RBAC depending upon the needs of the enterprise. All content actions are tracked for auditing. Content integrity can be ensured using Swarm’s Integrity Seals and version tracking.
Elastic Content Protection (Replication + Erasure Coding)
Swarm’s Elastic Content Protection combines automated management of replication and erasure coding with continuous integrity checks and fast volume recovery. Recovery operations get faster as the cluster grows.
Automatic Failover Recovery
Swarm architecture utilizes a bidding algorithm to determine the most efficient location to store, deliver, or recover an object from. In the event an issue is encountered, Swarm automatically recovers and redirects requests.
Encryption in Flight & at Rest
Swarm supports full volume AES-256 encryption for data at rest and standard HTTPS load balancing for data in flight to Swarm.
Swarm’s ‘non-single point of failure’ approach makes it simple to scale your storage. Just rack servers, boot Swarm and store. All storage balancing is automated. Swarm software is also available as a VM or as a complete appliance.
Optimize for Capacity or Performance
Erasure coding reduces footprint and increases data durability while replication ensures rapid access. Mix and match the data protection method that fits your business, retention or SLA requirements.
Search & Query
Swarm is seamlessly integrated with Elasticsearch giving you a wide range of search and analytics options. Queries and searches can be conducted by command line, through the Swarm web-based Content Portal or via the Swarm API.
File Sharing, Streaming & Video Clipping
Easily and securely share files and stream video directly from Swarm. Video clipping (Partial File Restore), parallel uploading and range reads streamlines the management and viewing of large files.
WORM & S3 Object Locking
Meet regulatory mandates that content is stored on non-erasable, non-rewritable media. Achieve immutability with S3 object locking. Integrity Seals let you prove in a court of law that content has not been tampered with.
Cloud Disaster Recovery
Swarm Cloud DR powered by Wasabi provides a seamless way to instantly add a remote DR site. Backups are customizable and data is replicated to one of Wasabi’s globally distributed data centers.
Command and Control
Swarm includes a unified web console for administrators and end users to track performance trends and manage/monitor content usage quotas.
All of Swarm’s console management and storage capabilities are also surfaced through Management APIs in order to allow for DevOps teams or developers to integrate Swarm into their enterprise applications and processes.
Add custom metadata to any file, at any time via a web-browser or the API. Define exactly how data is organized, previewed and filtered to limit results or narrow search.
Administrators can easily manage tenants, buckets, quotas, metering, and integration into identity management solutions via a web-based portal or via an API for seamless integration into 3rd party management solutions.
