SAN host configuration overview
This content provides host and version-specific best practices to quickly configure SAN hosts connected to ONTAP storage.
Your SAN hosts and ONTAP storage can reside either on-premises, in the cloud, or both.
|In a cloud environment, hosts are typically referred to as clients. All host-specific information in this content also applies to cloud clients.
For example, you can configure on-premises ONTAP storage to connect to on-premises SAN hosts or to connect to SAN cloud clients. You could also configure Cloud Volumes ONTAP or Amazon FSx for ONTAP to connect to on-premises SAN hosts or to connect to SAN cloud clients.
Correct configuration is important for best performance and successful failover.
