Compare StorageGRID Webscale Deployment Options

Feature Physical Appliances Virtual Appliance Nodes
Available Models SG5612 SG5660 StorageGRID Webscale software – VMware
StorageGRID Webscale software - KVM
Use Cases StorageGRID Webscale physical appliances are often deployed in the data center to protect large volumes of data. These data sets typically require the highest levels of performance and scalability available. StorageGRID Webscale software deployed on a virtual machine (VM) node is an ideal solution for medium-sized businesses that want to get started with object storage, or for enterprises that want to protect branch offices and remote offices with the same level of protection they enjoy in the data center.
