Behind the Scenes: Episode 84 – StorageGRID WebScale 10.4

Welcome to the Episode 84, part of the continuing series called “Behind the Scenes of the NetApp Tech ONTAP Podcast.”


In case you didn’t notice, we’ve been on a bit of a hiatus the past two weeks. First, I had my appendix removed and then vacation. Then, we recorded episode 84 and had it ready to go for Friday, but were informed we had to wait until Monday because that’s when the release shipped. But, we’re taking care of you this week – we have THREE episodes lined up. Stay tuned for episodes to drop on Thursday and Friday of the week of May 8, 2017!

We’re kicking off the week with StorageGRID 10.4 with the StorageGRID Director, Duncan Moore (@NCDunc). Not only do we chat about the 10.4 release, (which is available Monday, May 8 2017) but we also talked a bit about 10.3 (which we forgot to cover) and the overall state of the object storage market today.

What is StorageGRID WebScale?

The StorageGRID Webscale system is a distributed object storage system that uses a grid architecture to distribute copies of object data throughout the system. The result is a system where data is protected from loss and continuously available.
