Is snapmirror network compression supported from Solidfire to FAS?

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • NetApp Element OS
  • NetApp ONTAP


Efficiencies of Element OS and ONTAP are not maintained with SnapMirror replication.  This is due to architectural differences and how we structure the data on both sides to be understood respectively between the two platforms.

There is a possibility of enabling compression of the SnapMirror transfer itself in the future, but this has not been scoped or road mapped.
