Creating a single data fabric to serve millions of members

Leveraging StorageGRID at multiple data centers to create a single data fabric, a single grid for many use cases, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBS NC) keeps premiums low and creates value for the health and well-being of over three million North Carolinians.

From a cost metrics and licensing perspective, NetApp allows us more flexibility to shift data between on-prem, public cloud, and make appropriate strategic and financial decisions that go right back to impacting the member in a positive manner.

In one use case, auto-tiering data from NetApp A700 All-Flash Arrays to StorageGRID is essential for cost effective, highly secure data availability. In another use case, StorageGRID S3 (Object on-premise) is used as the target for BCBS NC DevOps pipeline and as a target for backup or archive, giving the insurance provider profound cost savings and development capabilities.
