This page documents product updates to NetApp Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud. Check this page for announcements about new and changed features and related product information.
Feature: NFS volumes of the CVS-Performance service type now support AES encryption of Active Directory communications and the ability for backup users to receive elevated file/folder privileges. See Creating an AD connection. For API support, see Update Active Directory with Kerberos and backup operators.
Feature: Metrics for cloud volumes have been updated to make them easier to understand and use. See Monitoring cloud volumes.
Feature: Volume replication is supported for NFS and SMB volumes. See Volume replication.
Feature: The CVS service type now supports SMB protocol/workloads. This feature is in preview. See Service types.
Feature: The volume replication feature now includes reverse sync, which you can use to replicate changes on the secondary volume back to the original source volume as part of a full recovery workflow. See Reverse sync volume replication relationships.
Feature: NFS volumes of the CVS-Performance service type now support extended groups using the Active Directory LDAP service. You can disable this feature if you need support for local NFS client users. See Creating an NFS volume and Creating an AD connection.
Feature: Cloud Volumes Service now supports integrated backup of volumes to Google Cloud Storage, providing long-term protection for disaster recovery and archiving for the CVS service type. See Backing up and restoring a cloud volume.
Feature: Cloud Volumes Service now supports zone-redundant volumes that offer higher volume availability within a cloud region for the CVS service type.
Feature: Cloud Volumes Service now offers data protection with replication across regions. See Using volume replication to protect your data.
- Feature: Cloud Volumes Service now supports Active Directory groups of users to have built-in backup operator privileges. Members of this group can override read and write permissions on files or folders if they are opened with backup intent.
- Feature: Cloud Volumes Service now offers support for bringing non-RFC 1918 IP addresses into the NetApp network for the CVS-Performance service type.
- Feature: The CVS service type is generally available. See Regional availability for Cloud Volumes Service.
- Feature: The CVS-Performance service type provides encryption in transit with NFSv4.1 Kerberos protection and SMB encryption.
- Feature: The CVS-Performance service type is available in an additional
asia-southeast1(Singapore). See Regional availability for Cloud Volumes Service.
Feature: Introduces a new Cloud Volumes service type. Cloud Volumes Service provides two service types: CVS and CVS-Performance. The new general-purpose CVS service type is intended for standard workloads, such as file and application shares, secondary storage, and moderate application workloads that need up to 100 MiB/s of performance. The CVS-Performance service type name refers to the service that was previously available as Cloud Volumes Service before the introduction of separate service types.
Feature: The CVS service type is available in the following regions:
southamerica-east1(São Paulo, Brazil). The CVS-Performance service type is available in the
northamerica-northeast1(Montreal) regions. See Regional availability for Cloud Volumes Service.
Feature: Volumes that use the CVS service type can be backed up to Google Cloud Storage using the API for long-term protection and disaster recovery. See Backing up and restoring a cloud volume.
Feature: Volumes that use the CVS-Performance service type can use NFSv4.1 ACLs. See Creating and managing NFS volumes.
- Feature: CVS-Performance is certified to run as the storage platform for SAP HANA workloads in Google Cloud. For details about supported SAP HANA configurations, see the SAP certifications page.
- Feature: Terraform provider support is available for automated Cloud Volumes Service infrastructure deployments. For more information, see Managing cloud volumes using Terraform.
- Feature: Cloud Volumes Service is available in the
australia-southeast1(Sydney, Australia) region. See Regional availability for Cloud Volumes Service.
Feature: Cloud Volumes Service supports the NFSv4.1 protocol during volume creation. NFSv4.1 offers better performance, built-in locking, and composite remote procedure calls (RPCs) for applications requiring these additional capabilities. See Creating and managing NFS volumes.
Feature: Cloud Volumes Service supports SMBv3 multichannel to achieve higher performance for Windows applications. See best practices when deploying SMB volumes with SMBv3 multichannel.
Feature: Cloud Volumes Service is generally available in Google Cloud, as announced at Google NEXT '19 UK.
Feature: Cloud Volumes Service is generally available in the following regions:
europe-west2(London). See Regional availability for Cloud Volumes Service.
