Editor's Note
In the past few issues, we’ve  focused on the clustered Data ONTAP® operating system, including an introduction to release 8.2 and an in-depth look at nondisruptive operations.  This month we examine how clustered Data ONTAP makes you and your storage more productive in "Storage Efficiency in Clustered Data ONTAP." We also look at pNFS, a standard for accelerating shared data access, in "NetApp and Red Hat Collaborate on pNFS."

If you find an article useful, please share it with your colleagues and peers.
