Introduction to StorageGRID

StorageGRID is a software-defined, object-based storage platform that provides intelligent policy-driven data management.

StorageGRID stores and manages unstructured data at scale to provide secure, durable object storage. Content is placed in the right location, at the right time, and on the right storage tier, optimizing workflows and reducing costs for globally distributed rich media.

StorageGRID is composed of globally distributed, redundant, heterogenous nodes, which collectively support file and object protocols, allowing integration with both existing and next-generation client applications.
