    1 NetApp Private Storage for AWS Solution

    This document describes the storage architecture of the NetApp Private Storage for Amazon Web

    Services solution and provides procedures for deploying and testing the solution.

    1.1 Assumptions

    This document assumes that the reader has working knowledge of the following:

    Amazon Web Services (AWS)

    NetApp storage administration

    Network administration

    Windows and/or Linux administration

    1.2 Use Case Overview

    The NetApp Private Storage for AWS solution is a cloud-connected storage architecture that allows

    enterprises to build an agile cloud infrastructure that combines the scalability and flexibility of the AWS

    cloud with the control and performance of NetApp storage.

    NetApp storage is deployed at an Equinix colocation data center where the AWS Direct Connect service

    is available, and the NetApp storage is connected to AWS compute resources through the AWS Direct

    Connect network service.

    Typical use cases for the NetApp Private Storage for AWS solution include the following:

    Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and SAP primary workloads

    Disaster recovery

    Development and testing

    Big data analytics

    Data with compliance requirements

    Data center migration and consolidation

    For more information about NetApp Private Storage use cases, see NVA-0009 NetApp Validated

    Architecture.

    1.3 Technical Overview

    The NetApp Private Storage for AWS solution combines computing resources from AWS with NetApp

    storage deployed at AWS Direct Connect data centers. Connectivity from the NetApp storage to the AWS

    cloud is made possible by the AWS Direct Connect network service.

    Customers who deploy the NetApp Private Storage for AWS solution at Equinix colocation data centers

    can also provision AWS Direct Connect network connections through the Equinix Cloud Exchange portal

    in 200Mb/sec or 500Mb/sec bandwidth sizes. 1Gb/sec and 10Gb/sec Direct Connect connections are

    provisioned manually by cross connect.

    In the AWS Direct Connect data center, the customer provides network equipment (switch or router) and

    NetApp storage systems. Virtual machines (VMs) in the AWS cloud connect to the NetApp storage

    through IP-based storage protocols (iSCSI, CIFS, or NFS). Additional MPLS or point-to-point VPN

    network resources can be used to provide connectivity between AWS regions as well as connectivity to

    on-premises data centers.

    2 NetApp Private Storage for AWS Solution Architecture

    This section describes the components of the solution architecture and explains the data security

    elements that are provided.

    2.1 Solution Architecture Components

    The solution architecture consists of the following components:

    AWS EC2

    AWS VPC

    AWS Direct Connect

    Equinix colocation data center (AWS Direct Connect data center)

    Equinix Cloud Exchange

    Border Gateway Protocol

    Customer-provided layer 3 network equipment

    NetApp storage (FAS and FlexArray)

    AWS EC2

    Amazon EC2 is a web service that provides resizable computing capacity in the cloud. This environment

    provides preconfigured VM templates called AMIs.

    EC2 Locations

    The AWS EC2 service is avai
