Article Summary

As of version 11.2 NetApp StorageGRID Webscale has been renamed NetApp StorageGRID. Versions up to NetApp StorageGRID version 11.6.0 are certified as supported.

Bucket Name – A unique name for the bucket that you want to add as a storage node.
Access Key ID – The access key ID.
Secret Access Key – The secret access key.
Endpoint – The endpoint name of the service. The port for the endpoint can be customized by adding the port after the URL, using a colon (:) separator. The default port is 80.
Use HTTPS – Use HTTPS to connect with the storage node.

  • Trust all certificates – Do not validate the certificate of the object storage. Normally this is unchecked.

Direct Mode – Data is uploaded and downloaded directly to and from the storage node and not via the portal. If direct mode is defined for the storage node, CTERA recommends setting the deduplication method to fixed blocks and keeping the default 4MB fixed block size. For details, see Default Settings for New Folder Groups.


Once Direct Mode is set, the Use HTTPS option is also checked and cannot be unchecked.

Add Metadata Tags – Use custom metadata to support information lifecycle management rules (ILM) on the storage node. Checking Add Metadata Tags implements the ILM, enabling storage tiering so that data can be routed across different object storages.
