Plans to use Data ONTAP as a universal data platform across cloud environments
BANGALORE, INDIA: NetApp outlined its vision for seamless data management across any blend of private and public clouds. Its vision centers on three strategic pillars:
Data ONTAP provides customers with a common cloud data fabric and seamlessly connect cloud resources.
NetApp will further integrate its software into existing and forthcoming private cloud, large-scale public cloud, and hyperscale cloud service provider solutions to help organizations optimize IT delivery and harness the speed, flexibility, and economics of the public cloud.
NetApp will leverage its universal data container to make it easier to move data and workloads across instances of Data ONTAP in a multicloud environment, boosting IT efficiency and enabling new, and innovative hybrid cloud architectures.
NetApp will continue to deliver solutions that support extensive customer choice enabling companies to adopt the right solutions for their business.
NetApp and its global partners, in the coming months, will announce new solutions that accelerate the transition to hybrid cloud architectures. These announcements will include deeper integrations for business applications in the cloud, new converged infrastructure reference architectures, secure cloud backup, and disaster recovery solutions.
NetApp will continue to provide an extensive array of customer choices for hybrid cloud operations while avoiding competition with its ecosystem of public cloud service provider partners.
As part of its strategy, NetApp supports all major cloud operating environments, virtualization frameworks, application deployment models, and cloud management solutions.
In the upcoming months, the company will announce integrations with flagship providers in each of these key areas, including new contributions to OpenStack and CloudStack, and new partnerships with large-scale hyperscale cloud service providers.
