Enterprises are looking to migrate workloads to AWS, but they don’t want to lose the enterprise-grade data management capabilities they had on-premises, such as reliability, security, performance, and cost efficiency.

BlueXP lets you centrally provision and manage a highly available, performant, and cost-efficient cloud-based storage infrastructure on AWS that enables seamless migration and data protection across your hybrid cloud.


Build your enterprise storage on AWS​

BlueXP offers two different flavors of ONTAP-based storage for AWS. You can choose the flavor that best suits your organization.


Cloud Volumes ONTAP: customer managed service, deployed and operated using BlueXP


FSx for ONTAP: fully managed AWS service, can be deployed and operated using BlueXP and/or AWS management tools


Cloud Volumes ONTAP and FSx for ONTAP are interoperable with each other and with on-premises ONTAP systems, enabling seamless data replication

Move data across on-premises, edge, and AWS ​

BlueXP helps you easily move application and user data between your on-premises, edge, and AWS storage environments.

  • Replicate data from on-premises and edge locations to native or ONTAP-based AWS storage
  • Use ONTAP caching to enable low-latency access to remote data for file consolidation or cloud bursting
  • Free up space on-premises by tiering infrequently used data from ONTAP systems to Amazon S3

BlueXP protects your data in AWS, making it easier to enforce high availability, business continuity, and enterprise security standards.

  • Create storage with a Single-AZ or Multi-AZ high-availability architecture with automatic failover and failback
  • Back up on-premises ONTAP and Cloud Volumes ONTAP volumes to Amazon S3 with BlueXP backup and recovery
  • Replicate ONTAP volumes across regions and clouds to ensure business continuity in the event of a major outage
  • Enforce enterprise-grade security that includes volume-level encryption, immutable copies, access controls, and ransomware protection

Single- or Multi-AZ HA with automatic failover and failback between nodes

Enforce multi-layered enterprise-grade security

Classify your AWS data for enhanced governance and privacy​

BlueXP lets you scan unstructured data for actionable insights to address compliance requirements, optimize costs, and accelerate migration to AWS.

  • Scan file information and discover personal identifiers within files
  • Organize data based on file information: sensitivity level, owner, permissions, labels, time attributes, and size
  • Copy, move, and delete files to perform clean migration​s to AWS

Lower the total cost of ownership for your AWS workloads ​

Optimize your ONTAP-based storage consumption and costs without sacrificing on workload performance.

  • Store more data in a smaller storage footprint with thin provisioning and built-in data reduction technologies, such as deduplication and compression
  • Tier infrequently accessed data to object storage for optimal storage utilization and cost reduction
  • Leverage inherently efficient NetApp Snapshot™ copies and cloning features that use minimal capacity and incremental forever block-level replication
