StorageGRID Webscale NAS Bridge architecture
StorageGRID Webscale NAS Bridge is a virtual appliance that allows file-based workloads to run on
StorageGRID Webscale. You should understand its operational components and key features.
NAS Bridge storage environment
To use NAS Bridge properly, you should become familiar with the components that comprise the
NAS Bridge storage environment, including the NFS and SMB clients, NAS Bridge node,
StorageGRID Webscale object storage system, and the DNS and NTP servers.
Storage clients
The clients in the storage network access the NAS Bridge node using either the NFS or
SMB protocol. When mounted to a NAS Bridge export or share, the clients appear to be
connected directly to the network drive of a native file server.
NAS Bridge node
The NAS Bridge node is deployed as a virtual machine running on VMware ESXi. The
node converts the protocols on the front end and back end as follows:
•
Client protocol to NAS Bridge (NFS or SMB)
StorageGRID Webscale NAS Bridge architecture | 5
•
NAS Bridge to StorageGRID Webscale (S3 API)
StorageGRID Webscale
StorageGRID Webscale is an object storage system that provides redundancy, resiliency,
and scalability. In a NAS Bridge deployment, each S3 bucket holds the client data and
namespace information for a single file system. Each bucket is exposed by NAS Bridge as
an NFS export or SMB share. Because the client data is ingested and stored unmodified,
you can also access the client data in StorageGRID Webscale directly using the S3
protocol.
Network services
NAS Bridge relies on network directory and time services as part of integrating into your
storage network. Both the DNS and NTP servers are required. You can either define
standalone DNS and NTP servers, or an Active Directory server (which provides both
services).
Administrative web user interface
The NAS Bridge node provides a web user interface that you can access using a modern
browser. The functions in the user interface are grouped into configuration and support
components, which are accessed using the buttons at the top of the page.
NAS Bridge features and benefits
NAS Bridge provides several core features and benefits by leveraging the object capabilities provided
by StorageGRID Webscale as well as the features of the VMware virtualized runtime environment.
These features provide a powerful and flexible solution that can add value to your storage
environment.
NAS Bridge includes the following key features:
Standard client access protocols
Clients access NAS Bridge using standard network storage protocols. Aside from
connecting to the mount points exposed by the node, no client changes are required.
Virtual machine deployment
NAS Bridge is implemented and deployed as a VMware virtual machine. Because of this,
NAS Bridge leverages several VMware features, including High Availability (HA). There
is also flexibility in terms of where the virtual machines are deployed, especially during
recovery after a failure.
Integration with StorageGRID Webscale
The NAS Bridge node is integrated with the StorageGRID Webscale object storage system
through the S3 API. This integration allows NAS Bridge to leverage many of the
StorageGRID Webscale features, including data storage redundancy.
Scalability
NAS Bridge does not impose any additional limits on the number of files stored in and
retrieved from the object store.
Migration path to object-based file access
NAS Bridge ingests the client files and stores them unmodified in StorageGRID
Webscale. This provides a unified object-file view of the data which enables a possible
migration path from file-based to object-based storage. Applications can evolve based on
customer needs.
Cache acceleration
Each NAS Bridge node provides one or more cache devices that perform both read and
write-back caching. This cache is optimized for object storage and improves overall
6 | StorageGRID Webscale NAS Bridge 2.0 Installation and Setup Guide
performance of the NAS Bridge. You can locate the cache devices on external network
storage.
Maintain separation of management and data networks
When configuring a NAS Bridge node, you can define multiple logical interfaces (LIFs).
This enables you to maintain the separation of management and data traffic in your
storage network.
RESTful web services management API
NAS Bridge administrative and management facilities are provided through a RESTful
web services API. You can access the API in several ways, including through the native
browser interface, the Swagger page, and one of many popular programming languages
and tools.
Extensive monitoring and support capabilities
The native web administrative user interface includes several support features, such as
alert notifications and the generation of debugging packages.
7
Installation and configuration workflow
To install and configure StorageGRID Webscale NAS Bridge, you must first deploy the virtual
machine and then perform a series of administrative tasks. The exact nature of the tasks depends on
your storage environment and deployment goals.

Deployment planning and preparation
Before installing NAS Bridge, you should prepare for the deployment to assure success.
Restrictions and best practices for a deployment
There are several restrictions, requirements, and suggested best practices that apply when deploying
NAS Bridge. You should be aware of these guidelines when planning a deployment.
Client access protocols
For storage clients to access NAS Bridge, they must use one of the supported protocols.
NAS Bridge 2.0 supports the following client access protocols:
•
Network File System (NFS) version 3
•
Server Message Block (SMB) versions 2.0 and 2.1
Network services selection and configuration
You must define at least one DNS server and one NTP server. You can either define these
servers as two standalone network servers (DNS and NTP), or as a single Active Directory
server (which provide both services).
The following restrictions and best practices apply when configuring the network services:
•
You should define an Active Directory server to support SMB file systems.
If you anticipate creating one or more SMB file systems, you must define an Active
Directory server. This is the most flexible option because it also supports NFS file
systems. If an Active Directory server is available, you should consider defining it to
NAS Bridge. Note that as part of this, you will first define a DNS and NTP server
using the IP address of the Active Directory server.
•
You should define a DNS server and NTP server if an Active Directory server is
unavailable.
If an Active Directory server is unavailable or you choose not to configure one, you
must define a separate DNS server and NTP server. This enables you to create NFS file
systems, although you cannot create SMB file systems.
•
If an Active Directory server is used, it must be included in the DNS configuration and
have the highest DNS priority.
If you define an Active Directory server, it must be defined with the highest DNS
priority. You should also define the Active Directory server before any DNS servers. If
another DNS server is defined with a priority higher than the Active Directory server,
unpredictable results can occur.
•
NAS Bridge and StorageGRID Webscale should use the same network services.
Because of the tight integration of NAS Bridge and StorageGRID Webscale, you
should configure them to use the same DNS and NTP servers (whether a single Active
Directory server or two standalone servers).
Separation of the management and data networks
Most storage networks are segregated according to management and data traffic. NAS
Bridge supports this separation by allowing multiple LIFs to be defined. You should
configure NAS Bridge to maintain the network traffic separation as appropriate for your
environment. If you do not need to maintain this separation, you can optionally use a
Deployment planning and preparation | 9
single LIF to handle both the management and data traffic. Note that these LIF types are
available for convenience only; there is no functional difference between them.
Cache devices and network storage
You must associate a cache device with each NFS and SMB file system. The cache
devices hold the data maintained in the writeback cache for each file system. Defining
multiple cache devices allows the cache data traffic to be separated and performance to be
improved. Further, when you use network storage drives to back the cache, recovery and
re-creation of NAS Bridge virtual machines is performed more quickly.
The best practice is to associate each file system with its own dedicated cache device.
Accessibility of StorageGRID Webscale and network storage
Initially, you might deploy a single NAS Bridge node. However, over time you can add
nodes or relocate the nodes within your organization. To enable the most adaptable
network configuration, you should assure that the StorageGRID Webscale system,
network services, and network storage can all be accessed from anywhere that a NAS
Bridge node is deployed or might be deployed in the future.
Firewall ports
Depending on your network environment, you may need to make changes to the network
configuration. Your firewall and other security devices should allow traffic on the
following ports as indicated by the direction relative to the NAS Bridge node (inbound to,
outbound from):
•
•
•

Creating a logical interface
Depending on the design of your storage network and the number of file systems planned, you may
need to create one or more additional logical interfaces. Creating each LIF is a two-step process.
About this task
A single IP address is assigned to the NAS Bridge virtual machine when it is started. NAS Bridge
automatically creates a logical interface definition with the IP address. You can use this logical
interface for both data and management traffic. However, if you need to separate the data and
management traffic in your storage network, you must create an additional logical interface. You can
also create multiple data LIFs if you plan to define a large number of file systems.
Steps

18 | StorageGRID Webscale NAS Bridge 2.0 Installation and Setup Guide
Converting the default LIF to a static IP address
You should normally have DHCP enabled in your VMware environment. In this case, the NAS
Bridge virtual machine is assigned a dynamic IP address. For environments without DHCP, you must
configure the default LIF with a static IP address.
Before you begin
You must have the current password for the CLI administrator account (pb).
Also, you should be familiar with pbcli, a command you enter through the command line interface.
You can get help using this command by typing the following in the CLI:
•
pbcli -lif help
•
pbcli -route help
About this task
The pbcli command should only be used for network configuration when DHCP is unavailable for
the default LIF. All other network configuration should be performed through the web user interface
or management API.
Steps
1. Open the VMware console for the NAS Bridge virtual machine using VMRC.
2. Log in using the CLI administrator account (pb).
3. When prompted, type the current password for the account.
4. Delete the default DHCP LIF.
For example: pbcli lif delete -i 1
5. Create a new static LIF.
For example: pbcli lif create -i eth0 -n <LIF_NAME> -p static -r both -u -c
<IPADDRESS>/<CIDR>
6. Create a default gateway.
For example: pbcli route create -g <IPADDRESS_GATEWAY> -n <ROUTE_NAME>
After you finish
After creating the static LIF, you must always use the static IP address when accessing the NAS
Bridge node.

•
You can define a DNS server and a NTP server
These are actual, dedicated servers that provide the separate network service. In this case, an
Active Director server is not defined or available.
If you choose not to define an Active Directory server, you can skip this task. However, if you choose
to define an Active Directory server you should be aware of the following:
•
As part of creating the Active Directory server, you must first add DNS and NTP definitions using
the IP address of the Active Directory server.
•
You must complete the Active Directory server definition first before defining any secondary
DNS and NTP servers.
Steps
1. Add a DNS server and an NTP server using the IP address of the Active Directory server that you
plan to add.
The steps needed to accomplish this task are not described here. You must refer to the separate
task describing how to add a DNS server and NTP server. Note that you must use the same IP
address for both servers.
