ONTAP System Manager (formerly OnCommand System Manager) is a simple and versatile product that enables you to easily configure and manage ONTAP clusters. System Manager simplifies common storage tasks such as creating volumes, LUNs, qtrees, shares, and exports, which saves time and helps prevent errors.

Beginning with ONTAP 9.7, a totally redesigned ONTAP System Manager simplifies ONTAP management with an intuitive graphical user interface. The new dashboard shows key cluster status and performance on one screen.

The documentation for ONTAP System Manager is totally redesigned as well. Easy-to-navigate content is quick and easy to use. Watch embedded videos for quick overviews of major management tasks.

For information on previous versions of System Manager, see the ONTAP 9 Documentation Center.
