The team has been busy over the last month working on some great new features for all ANF users.
Here are the latest features:
Cross-Regional Replication is now public preview
That right, you can now benefit from ultra fast, efficient regional replication without having to configure any additional networking of VM based replication. Get started easily by provisioning a volume and clicking the replication blade.
LDAP Signing is now enabled (Optional)
Optional LDAP signing : secure LDAP lookups between the Azure NetApp Files service and the user-specified Active Directory Domain Services domain controllers. For more information, see ADV190023 | Microsoft Guidance for Enabling LDAP Channel Binding and LDAP Signing
AES Encryption on LDAP to DC (Optional)
AES encryption on LDAP connection to DC as optional feature – you can enable AES encryption for an SMB volume by checking the AES Encryption box in the Join Active Directory window.
New Metrics available
There are new volume and pool metrics available in the metrics monitor:
Volume allocated size : Provisioned size of volume
Capacity Pool metrics
Pool allocated size: Provisioned size of the pool
Total snapshot size for the pool: sum of snapshot size from all volumes in the pool
And that’s all for this week’s update – stay tuned for more ANF updates and articles.
