NetApp Products


Filer
  

FAS20x0, FAS30x0, FAS60x0, ... FC disks, SATA disks, SAS disks FC & SAS disks faster (random access), SATA slower (archiving)

NearStore (Nearline Storage)


  

R100, R150, R200: (S)ATA disks Bigger, slower disks Typically used as a backup solution in tapeless environments

Nearline Storage (contd)




It acts as an interface between faster disk storage systems and slower tape backups.
 Features


of Nearstore

Backup & Recovery  Reference data & always available.  Disaster recovery

Without Nearline Storage

With Nearline Storage

Nearline Storage for replication

Netcache


Netcache appliance are distributed throughout the network and serve frequently requested data and content to end users with speed and security

SAN, NAS and DAS

Types of Disk Systems: JBOD




Multiple physical disks in an external cabinet Array connects to a single server only Provides higher storage capacity with increased number of drives Data not protected

Types of Disk Systems: Disk Arrays




Array controllers for optimized I/O operations and RAID calculations Higher speed interconnects between drives than JBODs Multiple host I/O channels Can be partitioned to allow each host to access its own

Storage Terminology


SAN, NAS and DAS

NAS storage speaks to a FILE




File Access to data


  

NFS (Unix) CIFS (Windows) Design made to share data

SAN storage speaks to a LUN




Block Access to data


  

SCSI FCAL/FCP (encapsulated SCSI) iSCSI (encapsulated SCSI)

Sharing of data difficult

Network Attached Storage - NAS

Storage Area Network - SAN

NetApp Terminology


Data ONTAP


= Operating system on Network Appliance filers and nearstores, borrows ideas from Unix (BSD) Same OS on every Filer/ NearStore model, different architectures supported (Intel x86, AMD, 64-bit, MIPS, ... depending on hardware model) All features are activated through licenses, eg. clustering Versions of data ontap

Booting and shutdown procedure




When a filer is shutdown it can be monitored through RLM




Telnet <RLM IP> System power on System power off System console

 

Reboot is the command to reboot the filer Halt command will get you to the ok prompt which is bios for ontap
       

OK prompt Autoboot Bye Boot_primary Boot_ backup Netboot Setenv Printenv
