NetApp releases Data ONTAP 7.3 GA!!!

Yep, that’s right, you heard it!
7.3 is finally released! no more release candidate, etc!

What does this mean, in the grand scheme of things?
NFSv4 support which will rock the house in a number of fashions.
SNMPv3 support for my more “secure” zones, to be managed by Operations Manager 3.7
Faster, more efficient operation for a number of things in the system!
It’ll run faster, hooray!

I know there a boatload of changes, too many to even cover – so for reference I’ll link myself back to the release notes!

Data ONTAP 7.3 Release Notes

This is definitely good times, I’ll be upgrading my home filer (FAS940), and my lab early tomorrow morning!

    Yeah, but what sucks big time is that I (as a IBM customer with netapp oem box N5200) can’t get a Netapp NOW account! It have bit me more than once when searching for Netapp related resources and information.

    I’m able to get hands on 7.3RC1 release notes, but will probably have to wait for a while until IBM puts its logo in ontap.
