NetApp ONTAP Select Resources

NetApp® ONTAP® Select is a software-defined storage appliance that you can deploy on a variety of different commodity hardware servers running the VMware ESXi and KVM hypervisors. Designed to complement NetApp AFF, FAS, and Cloud Volumes ONTAP storage solutions, ONTAP Select lets you quickly spin up storage resources in your data center. It provides the agility you need to build a flexible and scalable private cloud infrastructure.
