A while back, I wrote a blog post on the new scale out file system feature called NetApp FlexGroup. In that blog, I went over some of the details of what a FlexGroup volume is, where they’re used, etc.
ONTAP 9.1RC2 recently was released, which added SMB protocol support. And today, TR-4571: NetApp FlexGroup Best Practices and Implementation Guide is publicly available!
Have a look at the TR and send comments or questions to firstname.lastname@example.org, or post them to this blog’s comments section.
