As storage requirements for enterprises continue to grow, storage administrators constantly strive to maximize return on investment (ROI) while scaling the existing infrastructure. Administrators are looking for creative ways to prevent over-provisioning and to maximize the use of the existing resources.

FlexShare, a built-in feature of Data ONTAP, allows storage administrators to accomplish these tasks with ease and flexibility. Using FlexShare, storage administrators can host different applications confidently on a single storage system without impacting critical applications, resulting in reduced costs and simplified storage management.

This IBM Redpaper provides information about how FlexShare works, discusses FlexShare best practices, and describes high benefit use cases of FlexShare.
