Changing the instance or virtual machine type for ONTAP Cloud

You can choose from several instance or virtual machine types when you launch ONTAP Cloud in AWS or Azure. You can change the instance or virtual machine type at any time if you determine that it is undersized or oversized for your needs.

About this task


  1. From the working environment, click the menu icon, and then click Change license or instance for AWS or click Change license or VM for Azure.
  2. If you are using a pay-as-you-go configuration, you can optionally choose a different license.
  3. Select an instance or virtual machine type, select the check box to confirm that you understand the implications of the change, and then click OK.


ONTAP Cloud reboots with the new configuration.
