Data Encryption on Netapp Storage

tfaraj

Hi,

 

I have got a FAS2552 Storage cluster mode, I need to know if the data on disk is encrypted by default.

If I enable dedupliction or compression does this operation encrypt the data as well ? 

 

Thanks ,

Tarek

Hi,

 

You can check teh encryption status using storage encryption disk show

Using deduplication and compression will not encrypt data.

If this post resolved your issue, help others by selecting ACCEPT AS SOLUTION or adding a KUDO.

Hello, 

 

You may also find this guide on Storage Encryption handy, there are a number of criteria to consider prior to enabling Disk Encryption including the compatibility of your ONTAP OS.

Deduplication and Compression help to minimise disk utilisation rather than security.

 

 

All the best,
