Innovative emerging technologies like IoT, AI, machine learning, and advanced analytics all have one thing in common: the unending need for a massive amount of data. That means that more and more, compute and storage have to be elastic, simple and seamless so the right data is always in the right place, at the right time, and on the right storage tier.


With the release of the Flash Accelerated NetApp® StorageGRID® SG6060, enterprises can now more effectively deploy NetApp StorageGRID to handle high-performance, high-concurrency, small-object workloads and turbocharge their use of Big Data.


As an 11th-generation object store with over 15+ years of production deployments in the most demanding industries, StorageGRID is one of the most trusted solutions for storing unstructured data. As the latest addition to the StorageGRID product portfolio, the new StorageGRID SG6060 helps tackle performance-oriented workloads, providing enterprises with an optimized combination of compute, memory, solid state, and nearline SAS technologies.


From powering autonomous vehicles to conducting pressing genetic research, data-rich industries such as automotive, healthcare, life sciences, media and entertainment and manufacturing require effective object storage solutions to drive product performance, uncover the next major industry innovation, and react to swiftly-changing market opportunities. Coupled with an integrated policy-driven data management platform, the new StorageGRID SG6060 provides an unparalleled solution for handling emerging object storage uses cases such as Internet of Things, data analytics, data lakes, artificial intelligence, and machine learning.


What makes the StorageGRID software and the StorageGRID SG6060 different?

  • Simplicity: Automate data lifecycle management to deliver differentiated service levels with advanced data retention policies, all in a single globally scalable namespace.
  • Choice: Enable hybrid multi-clouds using CloudMirror and StorageGRID’s interface to Amazon’s Simple Notification Service (SNS) and Elasticsearch, Data Fabric integrations with FabricPool for cloud-connected mirroring and search, and in-place Hadoop and Spark data analytics.
  • Scale: Enable low-latency performance for billions of small objects generated by IoT devices and high concurrency for analytics workloads.
