DataMotion for Volumes allows you to move NetApp volumes containing LUNs (FC, iSCSI or FCoE) from one aggr to a different aggr on the same storage controller without disrupting applications. This capability comes in handy for balancing performance or space, changing media type and more.


Understanding a little about how this technology works is the best way to ensure success with it. I recently wrote a Tech OnTap article that describes DataMotion for Volumes including how it works, best practices and potential use cases.  You can check out the article at http://communities.netapp.com/docs/DOC-9649


Let me know what you think?

Will DataMotion for Volumes make a difference in your operations?
