Not too long ago, I recorded a 20 minute training session discussing how NetApp offers unique value for SAN applications. It describes static & dynamic virtualization plus outlines the pros and cons of each. Specifically, the content compares legacy data architectures, storage virtualization layers and how features like WAFL®, RAID-DP™, Snapshot™, and FlexCone™ work to realize storage efficiencies. I touch on best practices and some performance metrics compared to the competition. If you have any questions or comments about the material, please reply to this post.
