Deployment topologies

The StorageGRID Webscale system can be deployed to a single data center site or to multiple data center sites.

Single data center site

In a single data center (DC) site deployment, the infrastructure and operations of the StorageGRID Webscale system are centralized in a single site.

Multiple data center sites

In a multiple data center site deployment, the infrastructure of the StorageGRID Webscale system can be asymmetrical across data center sites and proportional to the needs of each data center site. Typically, data center sites are located in geographically different locations across different failure domains, such as an earthquake fault line or flood plain. Data sharing and disaster recovery are achieved by automated distribution of data to other sites.
