NetApp Announces StorageGRID 9.0


NetApp releases StorageGRID 9.0 software, designed to help organizations adapt to data growth, manage big content, cut costs, and better share information.

The NetApp StorageGRID software, combined with the NetApp E-Series storage platform, is designed to manage petabyte-scale distributed repositories of images, video, and records for enterprises and service providers. StorageGRID 9.0 includes support for the Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI) open standard that specifies a protocol for self-provisioning, administering, and accessing cloud storage.

According to the announcement, NetApp StorageGRID is the foundation for the NetApp Distributed Content Repository solution that scales to hundreds of petabytes with billions of records across hundreds of sites in a single name space. NetApp E-Series offers flexible, high-performance, and very dense storage ideal for big data applications. The NetApp Distributed Content Repository solution based on StorageGRID and E-Series supports a single, unified repository for data with enforceable metadata-driven granular retention policies across multiple locations.

With StorageGRID 9.0, the NetApp Distributed Content Repository solution provides: simplified enterprise data retrieval by storing hundreds of petabytes and billions of datasets in a single logical container; reduced data center space requirements with industry-leading storage density; and lower costs through secure large-scale distributed repositories for unstructured data.
