  • Object Storage
  • OpenStack

Building an object storage solution requires IT staff to design, configure, deploy, and support massive amounts of compute and storage. Creating an optimal solution while balancing cost, performance, and resiliency is a daunting task.

The NetApp SG5600 combines storage and compute into a single chassis to create a building block for enterprise-grade object storage. Preconfigured and fully optimized, the appliance enables administrators to rapidly deploy storage nodes for StorageGRID Webscale:

  • Customers can choose the 4U 60-drive or 2U 12-drive appliance. The chassis contains both compute and storage in a single, easy-to-deploy and serviceable form factor. Increased density saves data center rack space and energy, driving further savings.
  • StorageGRID Webscale software runs on internal compute for maximum efficiency and performance.
  • Guided by active metadata-driven policies, StorageGRID Webscale provides availability, durability, and geo-distribution of objects using advanced N-way replication and distributed coding techniques.
  • E-Series SANtricity provides node-level erasure coding with Dynamic Disk Pools (DDP), allowing the use of large-capacity hard drives while delivering consistent and optimal performance.

StorageGRID Webscale Appliance offers high-density, cost-efficient object storage in an easy-to-deploy appliance.

Deploy and manage enterprise-grade object storage with ease. The NetApp SG5600 StorageGRID Webscale appliance combines best-in-class E-Series hardware with StorageGRID Webscale object storage software to create a solution for your most demanding workloads.

  • Simple to deploy and manage
    The StorageGRID Webscale appliance is a ready-to-deploy, modular building block that you can use to create new installations or expand existing ones. It's available in two form factors: the SG5660 4RU 60-drive unit and the SG5612 2RU 12-drive unit. Both combine compute and storage in a single, easy-to-deploy, easy-to-service product.
  • Proven
    StorageGRID is a 10th-generation object store with a track record of production deployments in the most demanding industries. The installed base of nearly one million units is a testament to E-Series product reliability.
  • Cost-efficient, high-density
    StorageGRID Webscale software runs on internal compute for maximum efficiency.

Building an object storage architecture can be daunting. Build yours on a rock-solid foundation: the NetApp SG5600 StorageGRID Webscale appliance.

Use StorageGRID Webscale solutions for object storage on premises and in the cloud—faster, easier, and with less risk.

Liberate your unstructured data with NetApp StorageGRID Webscale object storage. Create the unstructured data storage environment that’s best for your business—anywhere, anytime.

By using StorageGRID Webscale object storage, you can:

  • Manage explosive growth in unstructured data, including petabytes of data created by multiple applications and devices and from globally distributed locations.
  • Provide end users with 24/7 access from any location and device.
  • Enable IT to ensure the integrity and security of the data.
  • Meet business and compliance requirements mandating that data will outlive the underlying storage infrastructure—in some cases by many generations.
  • Store unstructured data while meeting storage requirements for durability, availability, and performance.
  • Contain costs.

Use StorageGRID Webscale solutions for object storage on premises and in the cloud—faster, easier, and with less risk.

Rely on a Proven Solution

When setting out to create an object storage architecture, customers understand they are designing a solution for massive scale and long-term retention. With the proven track record of StorageGRID Webscale software and NetApp E-Series storage, customers can be confident they are building on a rock solid foundation.

The SG5600 combines best-in-class software and hardware into a purpose-built appliance. StorageGRID Webscale is a 10th-generation object store with a track record of production deployments in the most demanding workloads. The E-Series installed base of nearly one million units deployed is a testament to the performance and reliability of the E-Series product line.

Get Flexibility and Resilience

StorageGRID Webscale nodes, whether running on the SG5600 appliance or as virtual machines (VMs), are nodes within a resilient grid. Customers have the flexibility to deploy VM-based storage nodes with full interoperability with the SG5600 appliance. The choice of 2U and 4U models enables customer to further optimize for compute and storage density for varying workloads. Nodes can be added to increase capacity and replaced for maintenance or upgrade without service interruption.

Optimize Data Protection and Efficiency

Building object storage on the strength of E-Series DDP erasure coding provides data protection at the node level. Leveraging this with the geo-distributed coding across nodes and sites provides for geo-protection, optimal efficiency, and data durability. With hierarchical erasure coding, customers can create policy-driven data protection with multiple levels of granularity, choosing a combination of full copies and/or erasure-coded copies to meet SLAs while driving significant cost savings.

With disk failure handled by DDP, system performance is unaffected, and the need to do cross-site repair of objects is greatly reduced, providing consistent performance, while continuing to deliver outstanding availability and reliability.

Reduce Complexity

The SG5600 reduces complexity of balancing compute and storage resources by providing a finely tuned and preconfigured unit. Whether deploying a new StorageGRID Webscale environment or expanding an existing one, customers simply rack and cable the appliance and add it to the grid using the StorageGRID Webscale Installer. Configuration of the appliance is fully automatic.

Combining storage and compute also simplifies support. The SG5600 is backed by the NetApp world-class support and development organization. Advanced features such as AutoSupport™ provide proactive and immediate response to address any issue rapidly.

Increase Cost Savings

The SG5600 is a core building block for enterprise-grade object storage. When StorageGRID Webscale software runs directly on the embedded compute, the need for hypervisor licensing is reduced. Combining storage and compute into a single chassis reduces footprint on the data center floor, resulting in further cost savings.
