NetApp Cloud Volumes Edge Cache – Product Brief

NetApp Cloud Volumes Edge Cache (CVEC) uses an integrated set of NetApp building blocks to cache active data sets running in NetApp’s Cloud Volumes ONTAP in the public cloud. Cloud Volumes Edge Cache incorporates NetApp Global File Cache technology to cache active data locally at distributed locations and efficiently transfers data over the WAN leveraging its built-in streaming, compression and delta differencing technologies.

Cloud Volumes Edge Cache is a package of NetApp technologies:

  • Cloud Volumes ONTAP
  • Global File Cache for edge caching
  • Cloud Backup Service for data protection
  • Cloud Manager for deployment and configuration
  • Cloud Insights for infrastructure monitoring

Together, Cloud Volumes ONTAP and Global File Cache make up a cloud-based centralized file management system. They enable CVEC to centralize files into a public cloud while providing immediate access to data locally, even when stored on globally distributed file servers. Using NetApp SnapMirror and Cloud Sync tools, IT teams can consolidate files from all remote file servers into a centralized Cloud Volumes ONTAP instance. Admins can then define the folder structure in the file manager and configure permissions on the files and folders.
