  1. I have considered using a cloud based system to backup my Netapp data into the cloud. Do you have any recommendations that would be cost effective and yet reliable? I am not talking a Business Continuance model here but just flat backup with probably once in a blue moon restore of Cifs data and NFS/VMware volumes.

    1. Hello Patrick, your NetApp/Partner Systems Engineer is the correct person to consult you on this. I think you'd probably be looking at a Data Fabric Solution, check out these two PDFs (one with SnapCenter, one without):
      Note: You might need to login to the NetApp site to view these.

      FabricPool is a very nice solution in ONTAP 9.2, it does require that your live data is on SSD aggregates though. Check out 'Highlight 3' in this post:

      Cheers, VC
