When deploying a NetApp ONTAP Select cluster in a production environment, you can license the node storage by using the capacity tiers or capacity pools licensing model. In addition to the licensing model, you also need to select a license offering or capacity level. The license offering is independent of the licensing model and determines the size of the ONTAP Select virtual machines, as well as the available storage options and features.
