NetApp StorageGRID 8.5.0

Tab navigation

Leading organizations are improving operational effectiveness and reducing IT costs by consolidating and sharing fixed-content data across multiple sites rather than managing individual storage silos. The massive volume of this business critical data combined with long retention periods is challenging storage administrators to deliver a cost-effective storage strategy.

NetApp StorageGRID simplifies the management of massive fixed-content storage systems, and enables broad availability of fixed-content data while providing exceptional security. Through automation and intelligent data management, StorageGRID ensures consistent reliable access to data over tens of years by delivering superior data protection, business continuity, automated disaster recovery and multi-site access in heterogeneous storage environments.

NetApp StorageGRID is based on the patented NetApp StorageGRID Architecture, where a grid is a network of computing resources that include storage, processing power, and networking, presented as one large virtual computing system. Users and applications can transparently access heterogeneous, geographically distributed resources. Inherent benefits of this architecture include rapid access, low total cost of ownership, comprehensive security, seamless expansion, and business continuity.

  • + Functional details

    The StorageGRID system provides:

    • data integrity and authenticity protection through automated integrity checks and self-healing features
    • automated hardware refresh for easy upgrades to new generations of hardware
    • seamless integration with heterogeneous storage hardware vendors and technologies
    • single unified storage management across multiple sites and multiple storage tiers
    • bandwidth optimized multi-way data replication over wide and local area networks
    • flexible policies that govern the geographic placement and tier of storage over time
    • highly available system architecture that is fault tolerant and self-healing

  • + Business problem

    Individual storage silos are subject to a number of industry-recognized problems in the areas of data integrity, scalability, and disaster recovery and migration. StorageGRID addresses these issues by automating many traditionally manual tasks such as disaster recovery and hardware refresh, and protecting data with self-healing, digital fingerprints, and automated integrity checks.

  • + Return on investment

    StorageGRID reduces storage management cost by integrating multiple tiers of storage into one product, and delivering a single storage solution that integrates multiple applications in multiple locations.

    Scaling capacity to need (growing on demand) provides higher storage resource utilization and takes best advantage of new storage technologies.

  • + Competitive advantage

    Use of open standards eliminates vendor lock-in, avoids proprietary interfaces, and enables sharing between applications and across disciplines.

    Grow as you go by increasing capacity, performance, and footprint without reconfiguration or disruption to current users.

    Enable technology refresh without downtime. Data is transparently migrated from decommissioned equipment to new or existing equipment.

    Maintain business continuity with fault-tolerant design and distributed data copies. In the event of failures, data is transparently re-routed and new replicas created, avoiding disruptions associated with disaster recovery.

    Meet data retention regulations for availability, integrity, authenticity, retention period, and auditing.

    Centralize management by monitoring the grid status from anywhere on the network using the web-based administration console.
