Netapp Filer Abstration Layer for Python


Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,


Infineon IT is proud to announce the first official public release of our NETAPP Filer Abstraction Layer for Python.


Main purpose of this layer is to provide a common and harmonized API for both NETAPP filer types (7-mode and Cluster-Mode).

This library has been implemented from scratch using the native NETAPP REST API. Basic operations are already in place and can be used:

  • Create qtree
  • Create CIFS share, set ACLs
  • Create snapshot
  • Trigger snapmirror
  • etc.


Pls have a look at



API documentation:



Feedback and suggestions are very welcome and I encourage you to use the Issues list on Github to provide that feedback.


Thx and cheers
