Cloud Volumes ONTAP

Cloud volumes question

Przemoo9

Hello,

 

We have on-premise Netapp Cluster with ONTAP 9.1.

We are looking into potentially moving the data out of that location - and I was considering Cloud Volumes. I think the earliest version of Cloud Volumes was 9.3. So technically that would allow for snapmirror reliationship between 9.1 and 9.3.

 

Is that version still available to deploy? Or when I am deploying Cloud Volumes in Azure/AWS, I have to use the latest version?

Apologies, but we never used Cloud Volumes, so we are exploring the options that are out there.

 

Appreciate the help.

Hi.  But if you set up the relationship as a "unified replication relationship" (XDP) you can snapmirror between 9.1 and 9.5 (or 9.6).

See the "Unified replication relationship" section of this page:

When you use the easy drag and drop of on-prem to CVO, Cloud Manager replication this is the type of SnapMirror that will be created.  I would definitely recommend this method.

I believe the earliest version available to deploy in for Cloud Volumes ONTAP is 9.5. an ONTAP upgrade to 9.3 would be needed to allow a migration via DP relationship.

However, there are multiple cloud migration options available depending on your chosen HyperScaler:

Okay, I am going to test this out on a smaller dataset and see how this will work.

Is there a way that Cloud Manager can throttle the traffic, or can I do it at the source/destination, like I would normally do with on-premise replication?

rnicholl

Yes.  When you do the drag and drop in Cloud Manager, it starts a Wizard where you select the on-premises intercluster LIFs to use, the volume to replicate, the SnapMirror policy as well as you can set a throttle in this wizard.
