Clustered Data ONTAP 8.3.2 is now GA!

Several months ago, I wrote a post describing the new 8.3.2RC1 release and what features it includes. You can read that here.

Now, clustered Data ONTAP is in general availability (GA)! If you’re curious what GA means, check that out here.

You can get the new release here:

woohoo

Usually, releases don’t add new features between the RC and GA release, but due to popular demand, 8.3.2 has a few nuggets to add to the GA release, in addition to the things that were added to 8.2.3RC.

These include:

  • Simplified System Manager workflows for AFF (basically templates for specific NAS workloads)
  • LDAP signing and sealing
  • FLI support for AFF

In addition, a number of bug fixes are included in this release, so it’s a good idea to schedule a window to upgrade your cluster. Remember, upgrades are non-disruptive!
