Set up licensing for Cloud Tiering

Contributors netapp-bcammett Download PDF of this topic

Pay for Cloud Tiering through a pay-as-you-go subscription, an ONTAP tiering license called FabricPool, or a combination of both. Learn how licensing works.

If a FabricPool license is already installed on your cluster, then you’re all set—there’s nothing else that you need to do. If you’d like to purchase a FabricPool license, learn how to get one and install it on the cluster.

If you want to pay-as-you-go, then you’ll need to set up licensing directly from the Cloud Tiering service, which is accessible from Cloud Central. Licensing for Cloud Tiering isn’t available through Cloud Manager at this time.

There are no charges when tiering data to StorageGRID. Neither a BYOL license or PAYGO registration is required.
Steps to set up a PAYGO subscription
  1. Log in to NetApp Cloud Central.

  2. From the Fabric View, click Go to Cloud Tiering.

  3. Now that you’re in the Cloud Tiering service, follow the steps in the Cloud Tiering documentation to subscribe from your cloud provider’s marketplace.
