Solution Overview

Intelligent Data Growth Management

NetApp Cloud Tiering leverages native ONTAP FabricPool technology to move infrequently accessed data to power tier object storage in the cloud. This frees up capacity on-prem to lower cost storage in the cloud. Cloud Tiering offers centralized automation, monitoring, reports and management of multiple on-prem clusters with various tiering requirements.


  • Automated setup and management leveraging Cloud Manager as a broker
  • Single pane of glass management across multiple on-prem ONTAP clusters
  • Reporting to display hot / cold data percentages and cost saving estimates
