New TR Released: TR-4598: FabricPool Best Practices



FabricPool, first available in ONTAP 9.2, is a NetApp Data Fabric technology that enables automated tiering of data to low-cost object storage tiers either on or off premises.

Unlike manual tiering solutions, FabricPool reduces total cost of ownership by automating the tiering of data to lower the cost of storage. It delivers the benefits of cloud economics by tiering to public clouds such as Amazon S3 and Microsoft Azure Blob Storage as well as to private clouds created with NetApp StorageGRID® Webscale.

FabricPool is transparent to applications and allows enterprises to take advantage of cloud economics without sacrificing performance or having to rearchitect solutions to leverage storage efficiency.

  • ONTAP supports FabricPool on AFF systems and all-SSD aggregates on FAS systems.

  • ONTAP Select supports FabricPool. NetApp recommends using all-SSD FabricPool aggregates.

  • ONTAP Cloud supports FabricPool on gp2, io1, and st1 EBS volumes.

Hi Jeff,


I would like to see if NetApp supports all SAS based aggregates on FAS series for tiering.
