I’m pleased to announce two new jointly branded NetApp and VMware technical reports: TR-4308: Software-Defined Storage with NetApp and VMware and TR-4306: Building Automation and Orchestration for Software-Defined Storage with NetApp and VMware.
TR-4308 describes the joint NetApp and VMware solution to implement a software-defined storage environment. This environment is a critical component toward achieving an entire software-defined data center. TR-4306 is a deployment guide that explains how to set up the joint NetApp and VMware solution to implement a Software-Defined Storage solution, which is a critical component in achieving an entire Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC). The described setup can be used to create an orchestration and automation environment that uses NetApp clustered Data ONTAP® storage, NetApp OnCommand® Workflow Automation (WFA), VMware vCloud Automation Center (vCAC) 6.0, and VMware vCenter™ Orchestrator (vCO) 5.5.
Take some time to read through them and let me know what you think.
As always I appreciate the time you have taken to read this post and I’d love to get your feedback on these technical reports and hear what you’d like to see. Feedback on these TR’s will definitely help me to produce guides that will be more beneficial to my audience.
Thanks for reading!
