FlexCache® software scale out storage performance for read-heavy workloads. By caching only the data accessed, rather than entire volumes or files, FlexCache software:
1. Eliminates performance bottlenecks for read-intensive applications,even for multiple clients across multiple nodes in a cluster, by enabling primary volumes under heavy load to be cached across the cluster 2. Boosts storage efficiency and cost effectiveness by eliminating the need to provision for peak loads 3. Caches and serves hot datasets from anywhere in your clusterfor compute-intensive applications such as movie rendering, chip-design, seismic analysis,and financial-markets simulation
FlexCache software can be added to existing FAS or V-Series systems running the clustered Data ONTAP® OS using NFSv3/4 or SMB 1.0/2.0/3.0.
MultiStore Option license:
The MultiStore Option license enables you to partition the storage and network resources of a single storage system so that it appears as multiple storage systems on the network. Each virtual "storage system" created as a result of the partitioning is called a vFiler unit. A vFiler unit, using the resources assigned, delivers file services to its clients as a storage system does.
The storage resource assigned to a vFiler unit can be one or more qtrees or volumes. The storage system on which you create vFiler units is called the hosting storage system. The storage and network resources used by the vFiler units exist on the hosting storage system.
Be sure the host on which you intend to install the MultiStore Option license is running Data ONTAP 6.5 or later.
NearStore Option license:
The NearStore license enables your storage system to use transfer resources as conservatively as if it were optimized as a backup system. This approach is useful when the storage system on which you want to store backed-up data is not a system optimized for storing backups, and you want to minimize the number of transfer resources the storage system requires.
Storage systems using the NearStore license must meet the following criteria:
The storage system must be a FAS30xx, FAS31xx, or FAS60xx system. The version of Data ONTAP must be 7.1 or later. If you plan to use the SnapVault service, the storage system must have a SnapVault secondary license enabled.
