Bycast’s new StorageGRID 7 reportedly enables broad availability of fixed-content data and improves the core capabilities of traditional storage systems by inherently delivering superior data protection, business continuity, automated disaster recovery and simplified management through task automation and proactive notification.
Key features and enhancements in StorageGRID 7 reportedly include greater scalability that lowers the total cost of ownership (TCO) of storage management by increasing the number of objects/files that can be managed on a given hardware configuration by 200 percent. With new reporting functionality, such as forecasting storage capacity (per site and across the entire grid), StorageGRID 7 reduces the time and effort required to perform storage utilization trend analysis, according to the company.
Bycast will also showcase a new High Availability Gateway Cluster product with StorageGRID 7 that delivers automated file system failover to enable continued read and write access, reportedly even in the case of a hardware error. The High Availability Gateway Cluster runs on industry-standard servers empowering customers to cost-effectively achieve business continuity without vendor lock-in associated with proprietary hardware.
