NetApp Solution for Open Management

Manage NetApp storage through your existing third-party management tools, including tools from virtualization management, IT service management tools, or homegrown tools. Leverage the specially developed plug-ins and easy-to-use SDK to integrate NetApp management into your tools.

NetApp open management interfaces offer fast integration and greater storage abstraction that leverage our policy-based automation features to better integrate with existing management software, including:

  • Virtualization management tools
  • IT service management and orchestration tools
  • Homegrown management tools

We provide plug-ins to integrate NetApp features with popular third-party tools, and software development kits (SDKs) that make it easier for independent software vendors or your in-house development team to build in controls for NetApp storage hardware and software. Our free NetApp Manageability SDK provides all the functionality necessary to monitor and manage NetApp hardware, plus full integration with NetApp Operations Manager, Protection Manager, and Provisioning Manager.

The NetApp Manageability SDK is available for download free of charge from NetApp. Please join NetApp Communities and download the SDK.
