Changing to the Storage System View

Cloud Manager provides two management views for its graphical interface: the Storage System View for managing storage systems across a hybrid cloud and the Volume View for creating volumes in AWS without having to manage storage systems. You can switch between these views, but those instances should be rare because a single view should meet your needs.


  1. In the upper right of the Cloud Manager console, click the menu, and then select View Selection.
  2. On the View Selection page, select Storage System View, and then click Switch.


Cloud Manager switches to the Storage System View.

Here are a few tips when using the Storage System View:
  • The volumes that you created are hosted by one or more ONTAP Cloud instances. The default name for each instance includes the date and time that Cloud Manager created the instance (for example, "COT_17_44_40_Mar_17_16").
  • It is possible to create additional user accounts in the Storage System View. However, only a user account with the Cloud Manager Admin role can access the Volume View.
