Anthos Ready storage partner program.

Google Cloud periodically requests updated validation of partner storage integrations with new releases of Anthos through their Anthos Ready storage partner program. A listing of currently validated storage solutions, CSI drivers, available features, and the versions of Anthos supported can be found here.

NetApp has maintained regular compliance with the requests to validate our Astra Trident CSI-compliant storage orchestrator, and our ONTAP and Element storage systems with versions of Anthos on a quarterly basis.

The following table contains the Anthos versions that have been tested by NetApp and NetApp partner engineers for the validation NetApp Astra Trident CSI drivers, and feature sets, as a part of the Anthos Ready storage partner program:
