This topic describes the configuration for NetApp storage with the product platform.
Hardware and Software Requirements
VMware recommends NetApp storage with FlexClone for the VM image storage to take advantage of deduplication. For the other storage volumes, generic NFS will suffice.
- FAS3140C e/w 3 shelves of 1TB drives (42)
- PAM card
- NearStore A-SIS
VMware recommends NetApp storage with FlexClone for the VM image storage (/vol/vol_tenanta and /vol/vol_tenantb in this example) to take advantage of deduplication. For the other storage volumes, generic NFS will suffice.

Permissions and Security
- Read-write access: Set for all hosts (you can choose to limit to specific hosts if desired, but you should check this as you add management nodes).
- Root access: Specify a range of host addresses which should have root access (using CIDR notation). This range must include all the management nodes.
- Security: Select Unix style security for the exports.
