Create multiple virtual storage systems within a single physical storage system. NetApp® MultiStore® software enables multiple users to share the same storage resource without compromising privacy and security. Information on one virtual storage system cannot be viewed, used, or downloaded by users on a different virtual storage system.
MultiStore software provides a solid storage foundation for the Secure Multi-Tenancy for Cloud Architecture joint solution from NetApp, Cisco, and VMware.
MultiStore provides secure multi-tenancy capability to the NetApp Data ONTAP® operating system, allowing you to:
- Host multiple customers and/or departments on a single Data ONTAP storage system
- Consolidate many file servers, thus reducing cost and increasing staff productivity
- Perform simple and fast data migration
- Simplify your disaster recovery strategy
MultiStore gives you exceptional flexibility within the framework of a unified, multiprotocol architecture—resulting in a shared storage infrastructure that is more responsive, easier to manage, and less expensive to deploy.
