Add managed-Kubernetes clusters to Cloud Manager for advanced data management.


  • Add clusters to the Canvas to view and manage them as part of your hybrid cloud infrastructure

  • Back up persistent volumes using Cloud Backup Service

Supported Kubernetes deployments

Cloud Manager supports managed-Kubernetes clusters running in Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) and Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS).

Supported backend storage

NetApp’s Astra Trident must be installed on each Kubernetes cluster and Cloud Volumes ONTAP must be configured as backend storage for the clusters.


There are no charges to discover your Kubernetes clusters in Cloud Manager, but you will be charged when you back up persistent volumes using Cloud Backup Service.
