What if you could easily manage all of your on-premises data from a single cloud interface? Wouldn’t that make creating volumes easy? Well, now you can! Like NetApp® Kubernetes Service (NKS) on NetApp HCI, NFS-based NetApp Cloud Volumes have been added to our cloud services offerings on-premises, now in preview mode. Cloud Volumes on NetApp HCI is the next step in providing NetApp cloud-based services on-premises.
Cloud Volumes uses the NetApp Fabric Orchestrator in the cloud to create NFS volumes on your local NetApp HCI system, enabling you to maintain control over your business-critical data with a simple interface and API – no storage administrator needed. It’s easy to create volumes wherever and whenever you need them, on-premises. This blog covers creating a volume on-premises on your local NetApp HCI system. It discusses why it’s necessary to have data on-premises, the implementation of Cloud Volumes on NetApp HCI, how to set it up, and how to create a volume—all using the same interface and API used in the cloud.
