Third-party storage

On a V-Series system, Data ONTAP provides unified NAS and SAN access to data stored in heterogeneous Fibre Channel (FC) SAN storage arrays, including storage arrays from IBM, Hitachi Data Systems, HP, and EMC. Data ONTAP supports multiple storage arrays of the same model or different models behind one V-Series system.

The Data ONTAP software provides a unified storage software platform that simplifies managing LUNs on storage arrays and storage on disk shelves. You can add storage when and where you need it, without disruption.

For information about supported storage array models, see the Interoperability Matrix.

For information about setting up a specific storage array to work with Data ONTAP, see the V-Series Implementation Guide for Third-Party Storage.
