ONTAP 9.14

to Japanese version

ONTAP upgrade overview

When you upgrade your ONTAP software, you can take advantage of new and enhanced ONTAP features that can help you reduce costs, accelerate critical workloads, improve security, and expand the scope of data protection available to your organization.

A major ONTAP upgrade consists of moving from a lower to higher ONTAP numbered release. An example would be an upgrade of your cluster from ONTAP 9.8 to ONTAP 9.12.1. A minor (or patch) upgrade consists of moving from a lower ONTAP version to a higher ONTAP version within the same numbered release. An example would be an upgrade of your cluster from ONTAP 9.12.1P1 to 9.12.1P4.

To get started, you should prepare for the upgrade.

After you prepare for your upgrade, it is recommended that you perform upgrades using automated non-disruptive upgrade (ANDU) from ONTAP System Manager. ANDU takes advantage of ONTAP’s high-availability (HA) failover technology to ensure that clusters continue to serve data without interruption during the upgrade.

Beginning with ONTAP 9.12.1, ONTAP System Manager is fully integrated with BlueXP. If BlueXP is configured on your system, you can upgrade through the BlueXP working environment.
