Clustered Volumes and Namespaces

Clustered Volumes and Namespaces 

  If you previously worked on Netapp 7 Mode, Volumes are logical containers that are representing space. Where as in Netapp Cluster Mode it's completely different than Netapp 7 Mode.

What are those changes we are going to discuss in this article.

Simply looking back to Netapp 7 Mode Aggregates are made by combining multiple Hard Disks into multiple Raid Groups. In 7 Mode there are different types of

Volume types :

1. Traditional volumes
2. Flex vol Volumes

In Cluster mode DATA ONTAP there is no traditional volumes (deprecated). Flexvol volumes only available in C mode Netapp. Now in Cluster mode DATA ONTAP Version 8.1 and Later versions Volumes are associate with Vservers / SVM (Storage virtual Machines).

Single Namespace can have multiple junction paths under it. 

If you Observe above picture it has many junction path like A B C D and E. Junction path is nothing but a directory mounted to volume. In simple terms mount point. 

Provide access to root then user can access its below mount points easily.

All Volumes in Cluster Mode Netapp are virtual which means UN-distruptivley we can migrate volumes from one Node to another Node.
