Hey fellow NetApp Admin, see that? That's the cDOT party!
Jump in! The water is just fine... or is it?
NetApp's Clustered Data ONTAP (cDOT) is the place to be from a technology and performance point of view. As NetApp administrators quickly become aware, the transition away from 7-mode is not as simple as flip of a switch. NetApp’s CEO Thomas Georgens understands this, “The complexity and duration of clustered ONTAP transitions have implications on several dimensions.”
Today at #NTAPInsightUS NTAP announced their new Hybrid Cloud utilizing Cloud ONTAP. This announcement is a very strong move for NTAP. Today cloud isn't as much about technology as it is about business agility. The ability to keep IT cost low, the stuff that doesn't make businesses money, and build agility and flexibility into the data center helps business drive new revenue models which is really important in today's competitive world.
