Control your Active and Archive Data Automatically with NetApp Cloud Tiering

Based on NetApp FabricPool technology, Cloud Tiering identifies infrequently-used data in your on-prem storage and automatically and seamlessly moves that data to lower-cost object storage in the cloud, leaving frequently-used data on the high-performant, data center storage system. When the infrequently-used tiered data is needed again, the service will automatically and seamlessly move it back to the high-performance tier. Combined with FAST™ for local branch data caching, you can utilize a completely automatic data control system without worrying about unstructured data or duplication.

Why Cloud Tiering?

Using Cloud Tiering’s “lift and DON’T shift” approach, there is no need to make any change to your existing applications. Since the tiering and FAST™ operate in the data layer, the process is completely opaque to your applications. FAST™ + Cloud Tiering is also easy to set up and works transparently in the background, with no disruption to your processes.
