Quick start for tiering inactive data to StorageGRID
Getting started with Cloud Tiering by tiering data from an ONTAP cluster to StorageGRID includes a few steps.
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.
Log in to NetApp Cloud Central, start a free trial of the Cloud Tiering service, and click Let’s Start, Discover Your First Cluster.
There are no charges when tiering data to StorageGRID. Neither a BYOL license or PAYGO registration is required.
