NetApp SnapCenter Software Resources

NetApp® SnapCenter® Software is a unified, scalable platform for application-consistent data protection. SnapCenter provides centralized control and oversight, while delegating the ability for users to manage application-specific backup, restore, and clone jobs. With SnapCenter, database and storage administrators learn a single tool to manage backup, restore, and cloning operations for a variety of applications and databases. You can use SnapCenter to replicate data between on-premise environments, between on-premise environments and the cloud, and between private, hybrid, or public clouds.


The following resources are available to help you learn about SnapCenter, deploy it in your environment, and use it to meet your data protection needs. The resources on this page are for SnapCenter Software 4.0, which is the most recent SnapCenter release.
