Balance.PNGWe are announcing the end of availability of OnCommand® Balance software.

The last date to order OnCommand Balance part numbers is February 6, 2015, and the last shipment date is March 6, 2015. For a complete list of parts and the migration path, go to the End of Availability page on the NetApp Support site, select the Software category, and locate CPC-1409-07.

There is no direct replacement for OnCommand Balance. To manage performance of NetApp clustered Data ONTAP®, customers may use OnCommand Performance Manager 1.0, which is included with their ONTAP entitlement. For managing end-to-end performance of any NetApp platform across virtual infrastructures, physical infrastructures, storage, switches, and NPV/access gateways, customers can use OnCommand Insight 7.0, which is licensed by capacity.

Please contact Yossi Weihs with any questions or concerns.
