NetApp Ontap 7.1

Thursday, May 4th, 2006

I’ve had the pleasure of playing with Ontap Simulator. This is a marvelous tool, designed to simulate a real NetApp appliance, in an easy and affordable manner.

I’ve noticed a link to this simulator, in Oracle’s web site. I’m posting it here so you’ll get to know what I’m talking about. I’m playing with it on a Linux host. I’ve created virtual disks (small ones only. The simulator does not allow larger than 1G disks anyhow), and I’m playing with NFS, CIFS, Snapshots, etc.

If I have some surprising views on the matter, I will share them here.
