Gateway Node

One of the four types of grid nodes in a StorageGRID system. The Gateway Node provides load balancing functionality to the StorageGRID system and is used to distribute the workload when multiple client applications are performing ingest and retrieval operations. Gateway Nodes include the Load Balancer service and the Connection Load Balancer (CLB) service.

Gateway Nodes can be hosted on virtual machines or associated with a StorageGRID services appliance.

Note: The CLB service is deprecated and will be removed in a future StorageGRID release.
