Managing FSx for ONTAP file systems

A file system is the primary Amazon FSx resource, analogous to an on-premises ONTAP cluster. You specify the solid state drive (SSD) storage capacity and throughput capacity for your file system, and choose a virtual private cloud (VPC) in which to create the file system. Each file system has a management endpoint that you have the option to use to manage your data with the NetApp ONTAP CLI or REST API. If volume data tiering is enabled, data that's stored in a file system can be automatically tiered to lower-cost storage. For more information, see FSx for ONTAP storage tiers.
