Support for NetApp OnTAP 8.x Cluster Mode

Support for NetApp OnTAP 8.x Cluster Mode

Currently STM only supports OnTAP 8 in "7 Compatibility" mode. I see mention of STM supporting OnTAP 8, however it would be good if this support covers Cluster mode.

Any feedback from development?  This is one main reason why we dropped Storage Manager, but I still feel it's a very good and cost effective tool.  We are migrating everything to Cluster Mode and to 8.1.

Thanks

We like the product but will be forced to drop it without cluster mode support.

Hi greg.libert,

NetApp Cluster-Mode Support is now on the Storage Manager - What We Are Working On list.

FYI - I've left this idea as "Open for Voting" rather than move it to status "What We're Working On" b/c the way the Ideation forums work is that once an idea is moved to WWWO, it can no longer be voted on. I'd like to keep it open so that I can track interest and notify all interested parties when Beta/RC is available.

We have SolarWinds Virtualization manager and Storage Manager... all is fine until we want to look at our Cluster Mode Netapps. Lost in space from that point on. No latency, no information at all. BIG feature reques5t.

Add me to list of people who need this in order to seriously consider Storage manager product

Level 7

Add me to the list as well. Currently have a mix of 7-Mode and C-Mode and also currently searching for a new tool that can continue monitoring/reporting on both.

My management is really wanting a roadmap or at least some estimation of when the cluster mode feature will be released.  Is there any way to give us some sort of time table?  Are we looking anytime in 2014?  If so, what quarter?  If not in 2014, could your development team give reasoning why or at least a query of customers that use NetApp using STM and how it may affect them?

Thanks!

Hi Alexander,

We cannot provide timetables for upcoming features. This is due to accounting restrictions we are under as public company and unfortunately there is not a way around this, even under NDA. That being said, we are working on Cluster-mode support and I'd be happy to talk with you about your requirements.

Yes, I believe a conversation would be a good place to start, can you send me a PM and we set something up?  I can also gather requirements from our storage group.  Thanks!
