If you’ve ever been to Disneyworld, you’ve likely gotten the “It’s A Small World” song stuck in your head. (If not, I bet it is now.) I always associate it with the spinning teacup ride. The premise of the song is that we’re not alone where we live – that we share the world with many. (Fun fact: The song was actually inspired by the Cuban Missile Crisis)
With networks approaching 100GB speeds, the Internet and global trade agreements, that song has never rung truer. And with the need to do business across the globe comes the need to be able to effectively share data.
What if you could use your ONTAP cluster to present your data for reading and writing in multiple places around the world without sacrificing performance – in other words, a truly global namespace?
ONTAP 9.5 makes that possible with the re-introduction of FlexCache!
A small world, indeed.
