Storage-only
Details
NetApp HCIs hardware architecture fully separates compute from storage. This effectively means the platform has the capability to scale compute and storage as needed.

Storage+Compute: Existing NetApp HCI clusters can be expanded by adding additional Compute and Storage nodes, which adds additional compute and storage resources to the shared pool.

Compute-only: Existing NetApp HCI clusters can be expanded by adding additional Compute nodes, which adds additional CPU and Memory resources for VMs to the shared pool.

Storage-only: Existing NetApp HCI clusters can be expanded by adding additional Storage nodes, which adds additional storage performance and capacity resources to the shared pool.
