To maintainpeak application perormance, you needto be able to add storage and move databetween systems and tiers o storage withoutdisrupting ongoing operations. At the sametime, to control costs, you need to be able toeectively manage your storage environment.

Data ONTAP 8.0 Cluster-Mode is conguredin pairs or high availability. You can add upto dozens o FAS controllers and storageas needed to scale to multiple gigabytesper second o throughput and petabyteso capacity. To help you achieve the rightbalance o perormance and cost oownership, our Data ONTAP 8.0 Cluster-Mode supports any combination o astFibre Channel and economical serial ATA(SATA) disk drives.

To support the throughput needs o computeclusters with hundreds or thousands o CPUsand extreme NFS and CIFS perormancedemands, you can increase throughput tomultiple gigabytes per second by addingstorage controllers to your cluster. Youraggregate bandwidth available rom thesingle global namespace scales linearlywith the number o nodes in the system.Data ONTAP 8.0 Cluster-Mode systems useclustered le-system technology to providemaximum I/O throughput and remove thebottlenecks that impact production. Youcan stripe volumes across any or all o thestorage controllers and disks in the system,enabling balanced levels o throughput oreven a single le or volume and allowingyour technical teams to run multiple compute jobs concurrently. When many computenodes simultaneously require data, you canuse load-balancing mirrors within the DataONTAP 8.0 Cluster-Mode system or addour FlexCache

Our ully integrated storage solutions areeasy to install, manage, and maintain. Withour global namespace capability, you cansimpliy client-side management by mappingall data volumes in the cluster into a le-system tree structure that automaticallymaps or remaps servers to their data, eveni that data is moved. By oering a singlesystem image across multiple storagenodes, the global namespace eliminatesthe need or complex automounter mapsand symbolic link scripts.
IMPRovE DaTa aCCESS
We virtualize storage at the le-system levelto enable all compute nodes to mount asingle le system, access all stored data,and automatically accommodate physicalstorage changes that are ully transparentto the compute cluster. Each client or servercan access a huge pool o data residinganywhere in the Data ONTAP 8.0 Cluster-Mode system through a single mountpoint.

 As you add storage nodes to the system, youcan easily keep all physical resources—CPUs,cache memory, network I/O bandwidth,and disk I/O bandwidth—in balance. DataONTAP 8.0 Cluster-Mode systems enableyou to add storage and move data betweenstorage controllers and tiers o storagewithout disrupting users and applications.This lets you increase capacity, balanceworkloads, and can eliminate storageI/O hot spots, all without the need toremount shares, modiy client settings, orstop compute jobs, as is typically requiredto rebalance workloads on other high-perormance computing (HPC) storagesystems.

RAID-DP (a high-perormance version o RAID 6) protectsagainst double disk ailure, and transparentcontroller clustering and ailover automaticallybypass any ailed components, with nointerruption in data availability. In additionto having no single point o ailure, DataONTAP 8.0 Cluster-Mode lets you expand orrecongure storage while online.
