In my previous NVMe blog post, I shared a demo of how to add NVMe/TCP for ONTAP® functionality to an array that was already configured for iSCSI. In this next video, I’ll show you how our customers will be able to put NVMe into production. I’ll also cover the steps to provision your first namespaces, put them into a lightweight consistency group, and enable local data protection.

In the demo, I’ll dig a little deeper into some of the policy settings that make it easy to provision large numbers of NVMe namespaces and make them part of a service catalog with guaranteed service levels. 

Note: For this 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 create multiple NVMe namespaces and assign management policies in one simple workflow.
  • Why software-defined service levels are important and how to associate them with an NVMe namespace.
  • How to set up an NVMe subsystem to make it easy to map namespaces to hosts.

Watch the demo today to learn how to have NVMe namespaces ready for use and set up for Day 2 operations.

After you’ve watched the demo, if you’re interested in finding out more, you can also check out the following resources:
