Administrators of on-premises ONTAP systems can start using “the cloud.” ONTAP features are compared to the equivalent products and features in the cloud.

If you are already familiar with ONTAP but are not as familiar with cloud-based products, the following information helps you understand what you can do in the cloud and points you to other resources to learn how:

  • Cloud Volumes ONTAP

    A software-only storage appliance that runs ONTAP data management software in the cloud.

  • Cloud Volume Services

    • Azure NetApp Files

    • Cloud Volumes Service for AWS
