FabricPool Deep Dive: Use Cases and Best Practices when Tiering to the Cloud
Learn how to get the most out of NetApp FabricPool, the ONTAP tiering technology that automates the movement of inactive (cold) data to low-cost object storage tiers—either on or off premises—dramatically reducing the total cost of ownership. This session details new functionality, advanced use, and best practices learned from the use of FabricPool in production environments.
HCI and the Hybrid Cloud
The hyper converged infrastructure (HCI) market is entering a new phase of maturity. Join this session for a journey through the evolution of HCI, and uncover the five capabilities you should demand from your solution:
- Workload performance protection
- Integration with multiple public clouds
- A common data fabric for private and public clouds
- Organizational transformation enablement
- Independent resource scaling
Intelligent Operations Using NetApp Cloud Insights
NetApp Cloud Insights is a new SaaS offering that helps customers troubleshoot all the infrastructure running in the hyperscalers or on premises. It helps reduce waste by identifying stranded resources and it helps to proactively detect issues using machine learning before they become problems. This talk shows how quick and simple Cloud Insights is to discover an infrastructure and show value. You will also hear how customers in the preview used Cloud Insights and the value they obtained.
NetApp Data Availability Services for ONTAP Hybrid Cloud
This new hybrid cloud data service application enables you to simply and intuitively orchestrate NetApp ONTAP data movement from primary to secondary to cloud S3 storage. The first data movement service offered will be backup. With an optimized, stripped-down interface targeted at the IT generalist, this new hybrid cloud app will be cloud-resident—enabling rapid deployment with no infrastructure to buy and maintain. Data (files, volumes, LUNs) can be rapidly and easily restored by selecting from a built-in catalog with search and browse capability. This session will provide information on and demonstrate functionality planned in the initial release, including how to:
- Discover primary storage: ONTAP clusters, volumes, and existing NetApp SnapMirror backups
- Provide default and customized backup policies for end-to-end protection orchestration
- Back up and restore volumes and single files to/from AWS/S3
- Browse and search index to initiate data restore
NetApp SnapMirror Asynchronous and Synchronous Best Practices in a Flash and Cloud World
Flash and cloud have added two almost diametric challenges to data protection in the modern datacenter. Increased application performance with flash and increased capabilities in the cloud can be negatively impacted by both backups and DR if not properly architected. This session introduces and justifies the best practices for data protection in a flash and cloud world by identifying the underlying mandates that an IT department is challenged with. When you understand data criticality and business continuity mandates, it's easier to undertake implementation of solutions with NetApp SnapMirror. SnapMirror Synchronous replication now plays a role in these solutions and we will discuss that in detail. However, getting "there"’ from "here" is sometimes not an easy or even straightforward task. This session will describe how to introduce new data protection practices in an incremental way that do not have to be repeated as you move forward, and that allow you to perform NetApp ONTAP upgrades simply and without operational outages.
