NetAPP Storage support for PowerVC

We are using Netapp Storage Model : FAS8040 and AFF8080 in our core Banking Environment. Now we are planing for private cloud and considering PowerVC for the same. But as netapp is not supported this is a roadblock for us, Please add netapp support, so that we can use PowerVc.

    Thanks for the feature request - this has been logged via another RFE ( that we're evaluating for a future release. In the interim, purely as an FYI, there are some other storage abstractions that could be considered, such as Shared Storage Pools and/or an IBM SVC. Please let us know if you're interested in exploring either of these options and we'd be happy to help.
