Until now, scale-out storage offerings have been limited to NAS only and targeted at niche applications. With clustered Data ONTAP 8 , NetApp has changed that. Clustered Data ONTAP delivers all the enterprise-capabilities you expect from NetApp including unified storage (both SAN and NAS), integrated data protection, advanced storage efficiency, nondisruptive operations and simplified management. In a recent Tech OnTap article, our clustering guru Mike McNamara describes all the capabilities of clustered Data ONTAP including the ability to build heterogeneous clusters from existing FAS and V-Series systems and new results for block performance. The article also discusses two new technologies: Flash Pool and Infinite Volume.
