Confirming capacity of the StorageGRID Webscale system

Before migrating large amounts of data into the StorageGRID Webscale system, confirm that the StorageGRID Webscale system has the disk capacity to handle the anticipated volume.

If the StorageGRID Webscale system includes an Archive Node and a copy of migrated objects has been saved to nearline storage (such as tape), ensure that the Archive Node’s storage has sufficient capacity for the anticipated volume of migrated data.

As part of the capacity assessment, look at the data profile of the objects you plan to migrate and calculate the amount of disk capacity required. For information about monitoring the disk capacity of your StorageGRID Webscale system, see the Grid Primer.
