NetApp Integrates Object Storage Software With Amazon S3

Pitches StorageGRID Webscale as single object storage platform to use across multiple data centers and cloud environments

NetApp announced a new version of StorageGRID Webscale object storage software to help leverage hybrid cloud storage in managing massive data sets. NetApp presents StorageGRID for a number of use cases as a foundational platform for object storage.

Support for Amazon S3 was added in the new release, giving seamless integration of cloud applications and enabling storage of billions of objects in a single elastic container that can be distributed in data centers worldwide.Using either NetApp E-Series storage or third-party arrays, StorageGRID Webscale runs on a virtualized server infrastructure to support cloud-enabled applications.

NetApp said its patented capabilities include an intelligent policy engine, which determines the durability and physical placement of data to comply with business requirements.

NetApp plans to launch this next generation of StorageGRID Webscale software next year and hints at other new solutions in 2015 and beyond to help organizations take full advantage of object storage.
