Get started with Cloud Volumes ONTAP for Azure in a few steps.

One Create a Connector

If you don’t have a Connector yet, an Account Admin needs to create one. Learn how to create a Connector in Azure

Note that if you want to deploy Cloud Volumes ONTAP in a subnet where no internet access is available, then you need to manually install the Connector and access the BlueXP user interface that’s running on that Connector.

Two Plan your configuration

BlueXP offers preconfigured packages that match your workload requirements, or you can create your own configuration. If you choose your own configuration, you should understand the options available to you. Learn more.

Three Set up your networking
  1. Ensure that your VNet and subnets will support connectivity between the Connector and Cloud Volumes ONTAP.

  2. Enable outbound internet access from the target VPC for NetApp AutoSupport.

    This step isn’t required if you’re deploying Cloud Volumes ONTAP in a location where no internet access is available.
