NetApp Workflow Automation for Multi-tenant Cloud

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
Hello, my name is Kevin Hill. I am an automation solutions architect at NetApp. I will show you how NetApp is making the cloud easier. You'll see how NetApp’s Workflow Automation can create your secure multi-tenant cloud environment in minutes. First we are going into vCenter to validate our environment. We're simply looking at what DataStores currently exist. The next step is to create a secure, multi-tenant environment. We'll create a new NetApp vFiler, dedicate storage to that vFiler, perform all necessary network configurations, and initiate actions directly in vSphere for creating the new DataStores. All with one click. Access our Workflow Automation system via any Web browser. Log in with your credentials. Select from the workflows available for your credentials. Provide the inputs that the workflow requires and click execute. Here we're logging into Workflow Automation with credentials and now we can see the workflows we are authorized to use. We can see both the sample and cloud workflows. Let's minimize samples for now. Select our NFS DataStore with vFiler support workflow. Since we’re logged in as an operator role, we can’t change the workflow. We can click on execute. We provide user inputs for this workflow. We can see all of the controllers available. We can select an aggregate on one of the controllers selected. We can provide labels for our volumes. And we can identify a name for our vFiler. Input different information for our network configuration settings. You can see information from vSphere and select the clusters that are available to vSphere. Identify the number of DataStores to create and the size. We’ll select a 100 gigabytes. Execute now or choose a later date and time. Now, let’s preview the workflow. Validate what steps would process in our workflow, what storage objects might be created, what naming conventions would be used. Validate what would happen before pressing execute. Review detail to validate that our standards are being met. Now we are satisfied so click execute to process the workflow. We still go through planning, and process left to right, and top to bottom. This demo is edited, but the total process took approximately 6 minutes. We created the storage objects, then went into vSphere and created the DataStores. The process completed, so go back to vSphere and validate our new storage objects were created. See that we now have our new naming conventions, per the naming conventions we entered into the workflow. This was all processed with one click.
