Now that the news about NetApp’s upcoming NVMe/TCP for ONTAP functionality is public, as well as why we prioritized its development after NVMe/FC, I’m excited to show you how our customers can put it into production.

Check out this 5-minute demo to see how easy it will be for our customers to add NVMe/TCP to an existing SAN environment:

*Note that for the above demo, I’m using an early availability build of a version of ONTAP that has the functionality shown built in.

In the demo you’ll learn:

  • How to enable the NVMe functionality on a NetApp® ONTAP® storage virtual machine and define the IP addresses that will be used for the NVMe/TCP target.
  • Why storage virtual machines are really cool.
  • How to simplify network configurations.

Watch the demo today. By the end, you'll see how to have iSCSI and NVMe enabled for the storage virtual machine and ready for you to add all the NVMe namespaces you could possibly want.

After you’ve watched the demo, if you’re interested in other reasons why ONTAP is best for flash, check out 7 reasons why NetApp is best for flash.
