Contributors netapp-bcammett

Cloud Volumes ONTAP is available in AWS in two pricing options: pay-as-you-go and Bring Your Own License (BYOL). For pay-as-you-go, you can choose from three configurations: Explore, Standard, or Premium.

Supported configurations by license

Cloud Volumes ONTAP is available in AWS as a single node system and as an HA pair.

Notes:

  1. When you choose an EC2 instance type, you can specify whether it is a shared instance or a dedicated instance.

  2. These instance types include local NVMe storage, which Cloud Volumes ONTAP uses as Flash Cache. Flash Cache speeds access to data through real-time intelligent caching of recently read user data and NetApp metadata. It is effective for random read-intensive workloads, including databases, email, and file services. Compression must be disabled on all volumes to take advantage of the Flash Cache performance improvements. Learn more.

  3. Enhanced write performance is enabled when using SSDs with Cloud Volumes ONTAP Standard, Premium, and BYOL.

  4. For some HA configurations, disk limits prevent you from reaching the 368 TB capacity limit by using disks alone. In those cases, you can reach the 368 TB capacity limit by tiering inactive data to object storage. For information about disk limits, refer to storage limits.

  5. For AWS region support, see Cloud Volumes Global Regions.

Supported disk sizes

In AWS, an aggregate can contain up to 6 disks that are all the same type and size.
