Solution Overview
FabricPool, first available in ONTAP 9.2, is a NetApp Data Fabric technology that enables automated tiering of data to low-cost object storage tiers either on or off premises.

Unlike manual tiering solutions, FabricPool reduces total cost of ownership by automating the tiering of data to lower the cost of storage. It delivers the benefits of cloud economics by tiering to public clouds such as Amazon S3, IBM Cloud Object Storage, Microsoft Azure Blob Storage as well as to private
clouds created with NetApp StorageGRID.

FabricPool, first introduced in ONTAP 9.2, is a NetApp Data Fabric technology that enables automated tiering of data from an all-flash appliance to low-cost object storage tiers either on or off premises using user-defined inactivity thresholds.  Unlike manual tiering solutions, FabricPool is a built-in feature to ONTAP that reduces total cost of ownership by automating the tiering of data to lower the cost of storage. It delivers the benefits of cloud economics by tiering to public clouds such as Amazon S3, IBM Cloud Object Storage, Microsoft Azure Blob Storage as well as on-premise, to NetApp StorageGrid.
