NetApp StorageGRID Webscale

Software defined object based hybrid cloud storage platform

Today’s enterprises are undergoing explosive growth in unstructured data. Petabytes of data are created by multiple applications and devices and from globally distributed locations The ability to manage data while optimizing durability, protection, performance, and even physical placement across multiple geographies is key to meeting business requirements while driving cost savings. NetApp® StorageGRID® Webscale is an object-based hybrid storage platform that helps makes it possible for customers to manage, move and protect massive amounts of data across geos and cost/performance/availability/durability tiers seamlessly, giving them the freedom to make the best decisions for their business.

Automated

  • Data is placed automatically across storage tiers and locations
  • Policies are defined by:
    • Data retention requirements
    • Geo-location requirements
    • Network cost

Flexible

  • Data is accessed with NFS/CIFS protocols, and cloud protocols like S3 and Swift
  • Compatible with existing file and cloud apps and infrastructure
  • Seamlessly move data between on-premises and public cloud and access dynamics change
  • Complete transparency for applications and admins
