Tiered storage enables you to save costs by automatically tiering off your backups or infrequently accessed data to a cheaper storage tier and be able to access it immediately whenever you need it.

Tiering ONTAP Cloud Data to Amazon S3
Discover how Cloud Manager makes it easy to push your cold data to Amazon S3 and pull it back to an EBS performance tier.
When ONTAP Cloud creates Snapshot copies of read-write volumes (point-in- time copies of file systems), it tiers the Snapshot copies to cost-effective Amazon S3 storage, freeing up the EBS performance tier for "hot" data.
When you replicate a volume to a tiered storage configuration for disaster recovery purposes, all data for the destination volume resides in the Amazon S3 capacity tier. The data automatically moves to the EBS performance tier if you activate the destination volume and access data.
