About Cloud Tiering

NetApp’s Cloud Tiering service allows you to retain your on-prem, high performance AFF storage and combine it with the benefits of cloud economics, leveraging the low costs of a cloud tier on Azure Blob, Amazon S3, and IBM Cloud Object Storage.

Based on NetApp FabricPool technology, Cloud Tiering identifies infrequently-used data in your on-prem storage and automatically and seamlessly moves that data to lower-cost object storage in the cloud, leaving frequently-used data on the high-performant, data center storage system. When the infrequently-used tiered data is needed again, the service will automatically and seamlessly move it back to the high-performance tier.
