NetApp C-mode for 7 mode engineers

  1. 1. NetApp C-Mode for 7 mode engineers Brendon Higgins
  2. 2. Brendon Higgins – The numbers• 30 Petabytes of NetApp storage• 15 Years service in operational roles• 5 Years using NetApp 7-mode
  3. 3. NetApp Data ONTAP 8 7-Mode or C-Mode
  4. 4. Data ONTAP 8 7 - Mode• 64 bit aggregates• Compression• Data Migration• Unified Connect
  5. 5. Growing Up
  6. 6. Limits of the box • CPU • Memory • Disk Shelves
  7. 7. HA Partner
  8. 8. Oops!
  9. 9. Immortal ClusterNAS Custer 2 – 24 nodeSAN Cluster 2 or 4 nodes
  10. 10. Multiprotocol unified architecture• NFS v3, v4, v4.1, including pNFS• SMB 1 and 2• iSCSI• Fibre Channel• FCoE• ?Anti Virus?
  11. 11. Cluster Mode Scale Up
  12. 12. Mix it up (2 - FAS3200 Series) (2 – FAS3200 Series) Mixed Cluster-Mode(2 - FAS6200 Series) Network
  13. 13. Scale outData ONTAP – Cluster Mode
  14. 14. Building Blocks
  15. 15. Physical Cluster• Storage Controllers – Cluster Nodes• Individual disks – Defined into aggregates• Ports – HBA – Network Interface CardOnly visible to the cluster administrator
  16. 16. Logical Cluster• Virtual Server – Volumes – NFS service – CIFS service – LUNs (requires ALUA) – Logical Interface (or LIF) • Either IP or WWN address
  17. 17. Namespace VolumesVolumes are linked bymeans of junctionswhich connect from ajunction inode back tothe root directory
  18. 18. Single Mount Point NFS clients can go direct
  19. 19. ManagementPurchase configured system• Element Manager• System Manager 2.0.2• CLI• Powershell
  20. 20. Long Live Filer View
  21. 21. Change is good
  22. 22. Must be 2.0.2+
  23. 23. System Manager
  24. 24. Powerful Wizards
  25. 25. Delegation
  26. 26. CLI• Most powerful management tool• New command names Data ONTAP® 8.1 7-Mode to Cluster-Mode Command Map i.e. snap list is now snap show
  27. 27. CLI NavigationCluster :: Volume
  28. 28. Easy Navigation• Tab autocomplete• .. Back one level• ‘top’ Returns to ::• ? For help
  29. 29. Fast commands‘Order’ of parameters important if not usingname parameters
  30. 30. Demo• Add disks to aggregate• Add volume to virtual filer
  31. 31. NetApp Simulator• Download from NOW site
