Check out two new technical reports for security in clustered Data ONTAP!
Data protection has been a sore spot for IT organizations for decades, sometimes ignored or neglected until absolutely necessary. Of course, by then, it's too late.
OpenStack Summit 2015 in Vancouver came and went last week and NetApp's OpenStack team was well represented. See what sessions are available on YouTube!
In LDAP, objects are stored in a hierarchical structure, much like folders in a file system. Each object has a unique identifier so that LDAP queries can find them quickly. These identifiers are known as "distinguished names." But what are they used for?
Is DevOps really just a way to get employees to do more work?
Where does file locking fit in to multiprotocol NAS? How do you properly test file locking?
Recently, I've been playing with Docker quite a bit more, trying to educate myself on what it can and cannot do and where it fits in to NetApp and file services/NAS. I wrote a blog on setting up a PaaS container that can do Firefox over VNC (for Twitter, of all things), as well as one on using NFS in Docker. People have asked me (and I have wondered), what about CIFS/SMB? Now, we could totally do this via the Linux container I created via mount -t cifs or Samba. But I'm talking about Windows-based CIFS/SMB.
Recently, I wrote a post on DataCenterDude.com on how to use Docker to create the ultimate subtweet via a container running VNC and Firefox. That got me thinking... as the NFS TME for NetApp, I have to consider where file services fit into newer technologies like Docker. What use cases might there be? Why would we use it?
This post is part 3 of the new LDAP series I’ve started to help people become more aware of what LDAP is and how it works. Part one was posted here: What the heck is an LDAP anyway? This post will focus on the schema portion of LDAP.
As a Cisco Champion, we are asked to write a blog for the Cisco blogs. As a NetApp employee, I decided to merge the worlds and talk a bit about flow control and clustered Data ONTAP.
