This technical blog presents an overview of the FlexPod® Datacenter platform, highlighting NetApp® ONTAP® 9.6 MetroCluster™ IP (Internet Protocol) features and capabilities. It also discusses an example FlexPod MetroCluster IP solution configuration that companies can adopt to create a flexible, scalable, and highly available converged infrastructure in which the MetroCluster storage clusters can be separated by up to 700 km. This infrastructure can protect business-critical data services against single-site outages and help to achieve business continuity objectives.
