Contributors netapp-cgoff dmp-netapp

ONTAP Select offers full support for most ONTAP functionality. Many of the ONTAP features are licensed automatically for each node when you deploy a cluster. However some features require a separate license.

Note ONTAP features that have hardware-specific dependencies are generally not supported with ONTAP Select.

ONTAP features automatically enabled by default

The following features are included with ONTAP Select and licensed by default:

  • CIFS

  • Deduplication and compression

  • FlexCache

  • FlexClone

  • iSCSI

  • NDMP

  • NetApp Volume Encryption (non-restricted countries only)

  • NFS

  • NVMe over TCP

  • ONTAP multitenancy capability

  • ONTAP S3

  • SnapMirror

  • SnapRestore

  • SnapVault

  • Storage VM disaster recovery (SVM DR)

    Note ONTAP Select 9.12.1 and later now supports SVM DR as a source with a maximum of 16 relationships. SVM DR support is limited to the use of the source ONTAP version to versions +2, such as 9.12.1 to 9.14.1.

You must acquire a separate license for any ONTAP feature that is not enabled by default, including:
