Foreign LUN Import features

FLI features allow you to migrate data from third-party SAN storage to ONTAP systems. FLI migration features support a variety of processes and systems.

  • Support for online and offline migrations.

  • Operating system independence: block-level data migration does not rely on volume managers or operating system utilities.

  • Fibre Channel fabric independence: FLI is fully compatible with Brocade and Cisco FC fabrics.

  • Support for most Fibre Channel storage arrays. See the Interoperability Matrix for a list of supported arrays.

  • Support for native multipath and load balancing.

  • CLI-based management.
