It’s time for new technical report updates!
Since clustered Data ONTAP 8.3.1 is now available, we are publishing our 8.3.1 updates to our docs. The first one in the list for me was TR-4073: Secure Unified Authentication. Next up, TR-4067: NFS Best Practice and Implementation Guide!
What is NFS?
NFS stands for “Network File System.” There are tons of docs out there on the subject, but essentially, it’s a way to access a central storage system via network accessible shares, generally running on Linux clients. NFS itself is a standard protocol, defined by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standards.
What is Clustered Data ONTAP?
Clustered Data ONTAP is NetApp’s storage operating system that allows a subset of physical hardware to act as a single entity for data access.
What’s new in TR-4067?
There wasn’t a ton of stuff that changed. The new updates to the doc include:
- Improved navigation for best practices
- cDOT 8.3.1 changes
- pNFS document links
Where can I find it?
Technical reports can be found a variety of ways. Google search works, as does looking in the NetApp library. I cover how to be better at NetApp documentation in a separate blog post.
