SG100 and SG1000 applications

You can configure either of the StorageGRID services appliance in various ways to provide gateway services as well as redundancy of some grid administration services.

The appliance can be added to a new or existing grid as a Gateway Node. It can be added to a new grid as a primary or non-primary Admin Node, or to an existing grid as a non-primary Admin Node.

The appliance facilitates the use of high availability (HA) groups and intelligent load balancing for S3 or Swift data path connections.

The following examples describe how you can maximize the capabilities of the appliance:

When used with StorageGRID storage appliances, both the SG100 and the SG1000 services appliances enable deployment of appliance-only grids with no dependencies on external hypervisors or compute hardware.
