Episode 63 - What is FabricPool?

This week on the podcast, we welcome NetApp Product Manager Arun Raman (araman@netapp.com) to talk about FabricPool, the latest thread in the Data Fabric. First announced in Las Vegas at NetApp Insight 2016, FabricPool allows any workload (SAN or NAS) on an ONTAP system to keep hot data on all-Flash but tier inactive cold data off onto low-cost object storage, either on-premises or in the cloud. For more information on this latest innovation, tune into the podcast below, or read Jeff Baxter’s blog to learn how FabricPool will bridge the gap from the All-Flash Data Center to the cloud.
