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

bucket_a

PolicyCold Snapshot (Snapshot-only) Cold snapshots data is moved
to cloud object storage

Use Case
  • Entry level tiering.
  • Enables extended snapshots retention.
bucket_b

PolicyCold User Data (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.
bucket_c

PolicyAll 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.

Connecting the on-prem device to object storage on an AWS allows us to not only save money but also scale our on-prem environments.

Marcus MaschingHead of IT Computing Services, Festo

The storage team wanted to extend capacity of existing infrastructure. Cloud Tiering was used to immediately tier 200 TB of snapshots and cold data to Azure Blob object storage.
