About

NetApp Cloud Tiering service extends your ONTAP-based clusters by leveraging low-cost object storage of your choice. Without compromising on manageability and performance, Cloud Tiering efficiently manages your storage pool by placing your data at the right tier at the right time. Integrated into NetApp Cloud Manager, Cloud Tiering provides full visibility and control across all your hybrid cloud storage clusters from a single endpoint.

How it works

  • Setup Cloud Tiering through Cloud Manager
  • Data usage is continuously monitored
  • Inactive data is tiered to an object storage
  • Tiered data is always visible and fully accessible
  • Monitor reclaimed capacity and savings

Tiering policies

cloud_levels_1-1

Cold snapshots (snapshot-only)

Cold snapshots data is moved to cloud object storage.


Use case
  • Entry level tiering
  • Enables extended snapshots retention

cloud_levels_2-1

Cold user data & snapshots (auto)

Cold data (user and snapshot) is moved to cloud object storage.


Use case
  • Primary storage tiering
  • Optimize storage for mission critical & latency sensitive workloads

cloud_levels_3-1

All user data (all)

Complete volumes entirely moved to cloud object storage.


Use case
  • Secondary storage tiering
  • Expand the amount of replicated volumes for backup and DR
