Network topology examples

In addition to the required Grid Network, you can choose whether to configure Admin Network and Client Network interfaces when designing the network topology for a single or multi-site deployment.

Internal ports are only accessible over the Grid Network. External ports are accessible from all network types. This flexibility provides multiple options for designing a StorageGRID deployment and setting up external IP and port filtering in switches and firewalls. For more information about internal and external ports, see the network port reference.

If you specify that a node's Client Network interface is untrusted, configure a load balancer endpoint to accept the inbound traffic. For information about configuring untrusted Client Networks and load balancer endpoints, see the instructions for administering StorageGRID.
