NetApp Cloud Backup Service

Solution Overview


Fully Integrated Cloud Backup and Restore Service

NetApp Cloud Backup Service is an add-on service for Cloud Volumes ONTAP that protects and archives your data to low cost object storage. Managed by Cloud Manager, Cloud Backup Service provides additional resiliency and flexibility by creating a copy of volume data on object storage that can be restored to an alternate Cloud Volumes ONTAP working environment in region. After the initial backup, all additional backups are incremental so that only changed blocks are transferred and backed up.


  • Restore data from a specific point in time
  • Restore to the same or separate Cloud Volumes ONTAP working environments
  • Resides on low cost cloud object storage owned by you
  • Backups are independent of volume Snapshots
  • Data is encrypted at rest and in-flight


Works with

  • Cloud Volumes ONTAP (AWS and Azure)
  • Amazon S3
  • Azure Blob
