What is grid storage?
In IT, grid storage is a specific type of data storage that uses a number of interconnected nodes to accommodate versatile and scalable storage systems. This differs from the way the term is used in the energy community, where grid energy storage refers to the storage of electrical energy in a networked system.
Grid storage involves the use of specific data storage topologies or systems that determine how certain storage modules fit together. Experts describe grid storage as a process by which data can take multiple paths between two nodes to minimize the effects of a component failure.
These systems can be managed via a variety of central interfaces, e.g. B. Windows-based applications that show users how to set up grid storage and how to use it. These systems can also allow more storage nodes or components to be added easily.
