Changing between pay-as-you-go configurations

After you launch pay-as-you-go ONTAP Cloud systems, you can change between the Explore, Standard, and Premium configurations at any time by modifying the license. Changing the license increases or decreases the raw capacity limit and enables you to choose from different EC2 instance types or Azure virtual machine types.

About this task

Note the following about changing between pay-as-you-go licenses:


  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. Select a license type and an instance type 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 license, instance type or virtual machine type, or both.
