Overview of BlueXP automation options

Contributors dmp-netapp netapp-ranuk

DevOps teams use a variety of tools to automate the setup and administration of their data center runtime environments. NetApp supports many of these technologies for BlueXP and Cloud Volumes ONTAP automation. The tools are commonly based on an Infrastructure as Code (IaC) design.


Terraform is an open-source orchestration tool which uses declarative configuration files. NetApp has created a Terraform provider you can use with BlueXP to automate and integrate Cloud Volumes ONTAP based on IaC. See Terraform provider: netapp-cloudmanager for more information.


Ansible is an open-source configuration management tool based on the use of procedural configuration files.
