Applies to

  • NetApp Element software
  • Windows Server 2016/2019
  • Oracle

Answer

Yes, there are no interoperability issues

Additional Information

Considerations:

  • Element deduplication and compression can not be turned off and will be overruled by the 3rd party tool
  • Visibility of the deduplication/compression will move to the 3rd party tool
  • Deduplication/compression factor on the Element cluster will be close to 1
