EMC morphs storage arrays into servers

EMC announces they will be announcing something off in the future again, and it will change the storage industry. I can't believe you journalists fall for it every time.

Chatter foreshadows major NetApp ONTAP refresh


64 bit aggregates are already there

They were added in ONTAP 8.0 - you can create a volume up to 100TB already on a 6280, and the sizes scale depending on the memory of the platform from there. From memory the "smallest" 64 bit aggregate/volume is 40TB on the 2040's.

Dedupe is still limited to 16TB volumes, even if the underlying aggregate is 100TB.
