Accessing data - FSx for ONTAP

Accessing data

You can access your Amazon FSx file systems using a variety of supported clients and methods in both the AWS Cloud and on premises environments.

Each SVM has four endpoints that are used to access data or to manage the SVM using the NetApp ONTAP CLI or REST API:

  • Nfs – For connecting using the Network File System (NFS) protocol

  • Smb – For connecting using the Service Message Block (SMB) protocol (if your SVM is joined to an Active Directory)

  • Iscsi – For connecting using the Internet Small Computer Systems Interface (iSCSI) protocol

  • Management – For managing SVMs using the NetApp ONTAP CLI or API, or NetApp BlueXP
