HI,

Did you search for docs in support site: http://support.netapp.com/portal/documentation

You might get these topics in ONTAP administration guide.

Thanks,

Hi,

You can start with our Integrated Data Protection solutions landing page at http://www.netapp.com/us/solutions/infrastructure/data-protection/ for an overview of some of these products and how they work together.

The NetApp Protection Software page at http://www.netapp.com/us/products/protection-software/ can be used to springboard to details on each item listed there:

 
MetroCluster

  Open Systems SnapVault (OSSV)

  SnapRestore

  SnapLock

  SnapMirror

  SnapProtect

  SnapVault

  OnCommand Unified Manager

  SnapManager Software

And there is always the A-Z list to get you to everything at http://www.netapp.com/us/products/a-z/

Here are some documents to get you started (all found in the Library at http://www.netapp.com/us/library/ ):

For Snapshot Copies, the datasheet does a good job describing how we architected and why we are able to create them without impacting performance Snapshot datasheet (PDF).

For SnapMirror you could start with the “SnapMirror Async Overview and Best Practices Guide” Read Document

For SyncMirror: “High-Availability Pair Controller Configuration Overview and Best Practices” Read Document

For SnapLock there is a great analyst report by that describes how SnapLock coexists with deduplication “NetApp SnapLock Compliance Volume and NetApp Deduplication Storage Capabilities” Read Document.

For FlexClone: “Using FlexClone to Clone Files and LUNs” Read Document

I’m not sure about ACLs, but you might try “NFSv3/v4 in Data ONTAP 8.1 Operating in Cluster-Mode Implementation Guide” Read Document. If you are really asking about how we do ACL for mixed UNIX and Windows, then you can look at “NetApp Storage System Multiprotocol User Guide” Read Document

In addition, on YouTube we have a NetApp channel (NetApp TV, http://www.youtube.com/user/netapptv?feature=results_main ), where you can find videos (called “Play by Plays” on many of these topics. Just search in the channel on each topic.

For example, for Snapshot technology you’ll find “NetApp Snapshot Overview -- NetApp Storage Efficiency – NetApp” (you’ll have to scroll down past the “Snapshot” news items) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHfGKN0b9gU&feature=plcp

Finally, you can always contact your local NetApp representative, who can sit down with you and do a deep dive.

Cheers,
