With this pricing, NetApp comes on-site and installs a cluster of NetApp HCI nodes (the minimum is four storage nodes and two compute nodes) and charges by the month. The original cluster requires a 12-month commitment
When the 12-month commitment is over then the customer manages the infrastructure and adds nodes when needed. Expanding a cluster generates another 12-month commitment for the additional nodes.
