Net2Vault | Glossary
Backup Data is stored offsite on our enterprise NetApp.
Base Volume Your expected usage in an average month. We use this to price appropriately.
Setup Event When a VPN firewall setup or baselining of volumes is necessary.
Baselining Initial copying of data from one NetApp to another.
CDR/Vaulting Specifications Worksheet specifying volumes to be replicated, systems configuration, and replication schedules.
DataONTAP®


  NetApp operating system.
  • 7- Mode: 7.3.x, 8.0.x, 8.1.x, and 8.2.x
  • Clustered Data ONTAP® aka "cluster mode," aka "c-mode," 8.3.1 and higher.
"df-g" NetApp CLI command to list volume sizes and usage.
 
SATA disk
SAS disk
Encrypted disk
 
Large capacity drives up to 72,000 rpm
Lower density, faster drives that operate between 10,000 to 15,000 rpm
Hardware based disk encryption for data at rest
Disaster Recovery (DR)
 
We define Disaster Recovery as the addition of compute and network capabilities in addition to replicated storage. For purposes of standing up a customer's full environment in a recovery center.
DR Test
 
With contract DR services, we provide testing each year. We encourage all of our customers to test, to ensure you're prepared for a true disaster.            
ESR for NetApp Sungard's designation for our service.
Retention Policy How long data will be kept on our servers, customer defined.
Recovery Point Objective (RPO)Maximum targeted period in which data might be lost between backups.
 
Recovery Time Objective (RTO)Maximum targeted duration and service level within which a business process must be restored after a disaster.
 
Seed UnitSometimes used for implementation, when the data set is too large to copy over the WAN.
SnapMirror® NetApp mirroring technology at the volume or qtree level.
SnapVault®NetApp vaulting technology at the volume or qtree level.
Thin Provisioning
           
Instead of allocating storage space upfront, storage space is dynamically allocated to each volume or LUN as data is written.
Vaulting NetApp archive with an independent retention period.
VPN Encryption Standard Cisco® ASA firewall encryption.
