1.5 ONTAP Select Evaluation software versus running ONTAP Select in Evaluation mode The ONTAP Select version available on the web portal (Downloads/Software) is the full version of the product that can be run in EVALUATION mode. This means that the client can test the full solution including ONTAP Deploy, the ONTAP Select setup product. Deploy will check and enforce all minimum requirements for ONTAP Select which is useful for both documenting the procedure as well as vetting the environment for suitability. However, there are times when the test environment does not match the production environment or does not meet the minimum requirements enforced by ONTAP Deploy. For a quick test of ONTAP Select only, we are providing an OVF download of ONTAP Select only (Downloads / Product Evaluation). When using this OVF, the ONTAP Deploy utility is not used but instead you directly install a single node ONTAP Select cluster, which is capacity and time-limited, just as the single node cluster created using the Deploy tool in EVALUATION model. The main benefit of the OVF setup is that it lowers the requirements for testing ONTAP Select.
