Add or expand performance storage class to Infinite Volume


This workflow will add or expand performance storage class to an Infinite Volume Storage Virtual Machine. This performance class is mainly defined by following characteristics,

1. The data constituents are provisioned on aggregates with 'SAS' type of disks.

2. Data constituents are provisioned with a 'volume' space guarantee.

3. Data constituents have deduplication enabled with efficiency priority as 'background'. Compression is    not enabled. Efficiency operations are scheduled to run on weekends from 6 AM - midnight.


Input Parameters:        

§  Cluster* [Mandatory]: The Clustered ONTAP storage system that hosts the Storage Virtual Machine where performance class of Infinite Volume will be created. Note that the Infinite Volume feature is available from ONTAP 8.2.0 and above, so only those applicable clusters will be shortlisted and shown in the drop down list. This list would be a tabular resource selection showing Cluster Name, Primary Address, ONTAP version and performance class available aggregates size of disk type “SAS”.



·         Storage Virtual Machine with infinite volume*[Mandatory]: Storage Virtual Machine hosting the Infinite Volume where the new volume with multiple classes of storage is added. The drop-down will list the name of the Storage Virtual Machine associated with selected ONTAP cluster. This tabular list will have Storage Virtual Machine with amount of storage available for that specific Storage class. It also shows the amount of space in the current storage class.

§  Size to allocate (TB)* [Mandatory]: – The total size (TB) of the capacity class of storage that user wants to allocate to the Infinite Volume.



This workflow will add user specified performance storage class to an Infinite Volume in the specific Storage Virtual Machine.
