Bycast StorageGRID 8 Stores and Protects Mission-Critical Data, Images

Bycast Inc.’s StorageGRID 8 is now available. This release aims to set a new standard for large-scale long-term digital archives by delivering an open platform that virtualizes information retention and access over a spectrum of storage devices ranging from high-performance disk to archival media, distributed over multiple sites.

In addition to providing a flexible, general purpose archive platform, StorageGRID 8 delivers the performance, scalability and reliability required by the most data-intensive applications.

New features of the StorageGRID 8 include:

- Distributed File System Gateway: StorageGRID 8 features the new Distributed File System Gateway (DFSG), a high performance clustered file system front-end to complement StorageGRID’s distributed multi-tier object store. By delivering the high performance and throughput of the DFSG clustered file system, together with the reliability and scalability of the StorageGRID distributed archive, StorageGRID 8 allows customers to easily scale their environments in support of a variety of applications, according to the company.

- Multi-Tenancy: StorageGRID 8 includes multi-tenancy functionality specifically aimed at enabling service providers, as well as internal IT departments running their operations as a service, to address the rapidly emerging storage service provider market using the StorageGRID platform. Discrete security partitions ensure that multiple customers or departments leveraging the same storage service have their own independent secure archives.

- Enhanced Audit and Reporting: StorageGRID 8’s enhanced audit and reporting capabilities provide improved usage tracking, enabling storage service providers and departments to implement per-transaction, per-byte, or per-asset chargeback models.

- VMware ESX Support: Customers can now run a number of StorageGRID components inside VMware, providing them with more implementation options to further reduce their data center server footprint and operational expenses.

Together with the launch of StorageGRID 8, the StorageGRID 8 Express Bundles for small and medium sized businesses is also available. StorageGRID 8 Express Bundles are simplified configurations of StorageGRID, which reportedly offer smaller enterprises the same robust platform used to protect some of the largest life-critical digital archives in the world, and are available for storage hardware systems from leading manufacturers.
