ADP for AFF MetroCluster


Hi all,


is there something in roadmap that will let use ADP in AFF systems used in a MetroCluster configurations?

Thinking to a simple two node 8020 AFF i.e. with 24x3.8 TB SSD it's a real waste to let more that 7 TB (R4 option) of flash to a dedicate root aggregate.







Please refer KB 2020756 MetroCluster ConfigAdvisor: FAS8020 storage initiator connection rules

3014898 What are the supported configurations for Advanced Data partitioning?

MetroCluster configurations for synchronous replication applicable for Ontap 8.3 and ONTAP 9:

  • 2-node
  • 4-node: two x 2-node switched or switchless clusters with fabric-attached (switched) storage; 4 nodes total: a 2-node active-active cluster at each site)
  • 8-node (NAS-only): four x 2-node switched or switchless clusters with fabric-attached (switched) storage; 8 nodes total: a 4-node cluster at each site)
