In today’s IT environment, businesses need the flexibility and efficiency that a cloud environment provides. For fast deployment of IT resources or for applications with varying usage needs, the cloud provides a level of flexibility unmatched by any on-premises solution. Use only what you need when you need it. NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP is a cloud-native data management software built on NetApp ONTAP storage software that provides a superior universal storage platform from your data center to the cloud. Having the same storage software in the cloud as you do on the premises maximises the value of a data fabric, while saving you from the expense and time of training your IT staff on all new storage management methods
Data used to be the enabler of business performance—now data IS the business. Organisations need to have control of their data, no matter where it is—that is why they need a single, cohesive data environment, or data fabric. Organisations are also facing different requirements which range from disaster recovery, development and test environments to critical applications that require highly available nondisruptive operation, such as production business applications and file services using NFS and SM.
Cloud Volumes ONTAP provides a data storage solution on AWS, Google and Azure that fits different customer requirements. Cloud Volumes ONTAP is deployed through NetApp Cloud Manager, a single-pane console. It provides installation, resource assignment and data provisioning. Cloud Manager is used for day-to-day management activities of the cloud data resources and it simplifies cloud storage management by providing cloud monitoring and administration frontend for NetApp ONTAP storage systems for on the premises, hybrid, or in the cloud. All Cloud Manager functions can be executed with RESTful API calls, allowing automation and orchestration of cloud storage operations. Cloud Volumes ONTAP provides two methods for consuming storage: Pay-as-you-go is purchased directly from your cloud provider marketplace and is charged on an hourly basis. The bring-your-own-license or BYOL model is a license purchased from NetApp. It is installed in your Cloud Volumes ONTAP instance. BYOL subscriptions can be purchased in 1-, 2-, or 3-year increments
