A FlexClone

volume is a writable point-in-time image of a FlexVol volume or another

FlexClone volume. FlexClone volumes add a new level of agility and efficiency to

storage operations. They take only a few seconds to create and are created

without interrupting access to the parent FlexVol volume. FlexClone volumes use

space very efficiently, leveraging the Data ONTAP architecture to store only data

that changes between the parent and clone. This is a huge potential saving in

dollars, space, and energy. In addition to all these benefits, clone volumes have

the same high performance as other kinds of volumes
