No matter whether you are running a single FAS2600 or a world-wide set of AFF A900 based MCC clusters:
Cleondris Data Manager (CDM) can help you to get the most out of your NetApp installation.

Snapshot based Backups

CDM independently supports all versions of ONTAP from 7.3.3 up to 9.x (both 7-mode and Clustered Data ONTAP, including MCC). Based on NetApp snapshot technology, CDM can backup any number of files (CIFS/NFS), LUNS or VMs instantaneously. CDM does not require the installation of additional agents nor does it utilize other VM resources. It leverages Data ONTAP's deduplication to further increase backup efficiency.

Restore of Files, Directories & VMs

CDM can restore all kinds of data. Its unique NetApp storage browser can be used to easily navigate through snapshots and replication chains. Restores can be triggered with a single click - redirected restores included. Due to the enterprise nature of the software, every step of a restore operation is carefully logged for documentation and compliance purposes, including identity of the restore user and assigned ticket numbers.

SnapMirror Replication

CDM can backup data using SnapMirror DP & XDP, 7-Mode SnapVault, VSM, QSM and OSSV. Even if you don't use any of the CDM backup features, the integrated global replication view can be used to easily identify replication relations with high lags. In stealth mode, CDM tracks replications and can restore VMs even if a backup was done with NetApp internal snapshot schedules.

Indexing & Search

Storage administrators spend a lot of their time helping their users find and recover lost data. Cleondris supports storage admins with the first file system meta-data indexing & search solution optimized exclusively for Data ONTAP. Developed from the ground up, it integrates optimally with NetApp snapshots, NDMP, SnapDiff, and SnapMirror features. CDM supports indexing on primary, secondary as well as tertiary volumes (SnapMirror cascades).

And much more...

  • The powerful graphical backup scheduler allows to define snapshot backup schedules without any CRON knowledge.
  • The VMware integration is very stable and mature, it is part of CDM since 2010.
  • The single file restore capabilities for Linux + Windows virtual guests have been developed together with enterprise customers.
  • The agent-less, adhoc LVM resignature and self-service capabilities for Linux virtual guests is a unique selling proposition. It is ideal for customers that want to replace agent-based backups of VMs with array based snapshot backups.
  • The web UI of CDM is based on HTML5. No local client software other than a web browser is needed to access the software.
  • A RBAC (role based access control) system allows to safely delegate tasks, e.g., to a helpdesk or to security officers. It can be closely integrated into AD (active directory).
  • Kerberos single-sign on allows the product to be integrated into password-less enterprise environments with smart-card authentication.
  • A mature event system allows the product to be integrated into external monitoring and event aggregating systems like Splunk.
