BREAKING NEWS at #NetAppInsight#ONTAP #VMware #vVols Support

This Post BREAKING NEWS at #NetAppInsight – ONTAP VVol Support? appeared first on Why Is The Internet Broken?


Along with the announcement that vSphere 6.5 went GA today, I’ve got some pretty cool news that I was just given permission to share, on the caveat that I can’t actually give the “when” portion of this…

1.0 is currently being qualified for 9.1!


That’s right… Both SolidFire *and* ONTAP will have support for VVols. Somewhere, Pete Flecha (@vPedroArrow) is smiling.

If you have a vested interest in this news, please email me at or comment below with some contact information and I will pass the word on to the ONTAP team.

So, while you’re at NetApp Insight in Berlin, go find Pete at the booth, or attend one of the specific sessions:
