The Distributed Content Repository from NetApp was designed to extend object-based storage across geographies and provide a repository for unstructured content that is effectively infinite, practically immortal, and highly intelligent. In a new ESG Lab report, the NetApp Distributed Content Repository is examined in the context of transparent connectivity to massively scalable, object-based storage for enterprises in data centers, branch and remote offices as well as in the cloud, via service providers. Simplified management of data and policy-based security and retention are also explored.
The NetApp Distributed Content Repository solution provides organizations with the ability to store petabytes of data and billions of files or objects across hundreds of sites in a single, location-independent namespace. The NetApp Distributed Content Repository is a comprehensive solution to an organization’s unstructured data storage and archiving challenges and an easy path to handling big content in a private or public cloud. The solution is built upon NetApp StorageGRID software, running on industry standard x86 servers (virtualized for availability and flexibility) and NetApp E2600 series storage platform.
