Quick start for tiering inactive data to StorageGRID

Contributors netapp-bcammett

Getting started with Cloud Tiering by tiering data from an ONTAP cluster to StorageGRID includes a few steps.

number 1 Prepare to tier data to StorageGRID

You need the following:

  • An AFF or FAS system with all-SSD aggregates running ONTAP 9.4 or later, and a connection over a user-specified port to StorageGRID.

  • StorageGRID 10.3 or later with AWS access keys that have S3 permissions.

  • A Service Connector installed on an on-premises Linux host.

    The Service Connector needs an outbound HTTPS connection to the ONTAP cluster, to StorageGRID, and to the Cloud Tiering service.
