Creating aggregates

You can create aggregates yourself or let Cloud Manager do it for you when it creates volumes. The benefit of creating aggregates yourself is that you can choose the underlying EBS disk size, which enables you to size your aggregate for the capacity or the performance that you need.


  1. On the Working Environments page, double-click the name of the ONTAP Cloud instance on which you want to manage aggregates.
  2. Click the menu icon, and then click Advanced > Advanced allocation.
  3. Click Add Aggregate and then specify details for the aggregate.
  4. Click Create, and then click Approve and Purchase.
