NetApp Revolutionizes Data Fabric to Dominate Hybrid Multicloud

Sponsored by Businesswire

NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP), the data authority for hybrid cloud, today
announced new solutions and services that allow customers to adopt and
consume cloud on their terms. With today’s announcement, NetApp is
delivering a truly seamless hybrid multicloud experience that includes
availability of NetApp® Cloud Data Services on NetApp HCI, the ability
to expand with persistent storage across the biggest public clouds, and
the ability for customers to manage, use, and pay for cloud services the
way they want to.

The public cloud has created a new standard for IT that all industry
leaders must match to provide the experience that users enjoy in the
cloud and now demand on premises. To be successful, organizations must
fuel data-driven innovation by leveraging the cloud and modernizing
their IT, bringing the power of the cloud to every part of their
business through a seamless hybrid multicloud experience. Only NetApp,
with its data fabric strategy, has what customers need to build a unique
data fabric designed for their business—in any cloud, in one experience.

“NetApp’s data fabric offerings enable enterprises to seamlessly manage
data across a multitude of IT infrastructures, covering on premises and
multiple public cloud service platforms,” said Deepak Mohan, research
director, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies, IDC. “IDC
research shows that the gap between businesses that embrace data and
those that do not has dramatically widened over the past 3 years. As the
c-suite increasingly prioritizes data as a strategic asset, NetApp’s new
multi-platform offerings empowers IT organizations with the flexibility
and consistency needed to maximize the value potential of their data.”

“Overall speed and flexibility between on-premises and cloud
environments has been key to our adoption of NetApp’s tech and Data
Fabric strategy,” said Konstantin Kostenarov, Ducati CTO. “As Ducati
becomes a lifestyle brand and further expands our business across the
world, our approach to data informs everything from strategy on the
racetrack to how we design our products and engage with customers.
NetApp is leading the charge in hybrid multicloud, and they are one of
the best partners we trust to keep up as Ducati transforms on and off
the racetrack.”

“The way organizations invest in and consume IT resources continues to
evolve—hybrid multicloud is clearly now the de facto IT architecture,”
said NetApp CEO George Kurian. “This is a reality that NetApp has been
preparing for many years with our Data Fabric strategy. Our close
partnerships with major public cloud providers, historical leadership in
storage and data management, and groundbreaking approach to creating
hybrid multicloud environments with Kubernetes and advanced data
services represent an important milestone. It is an exciting foundation
for our customers to drive IT transformation today and for further
innovation in the years to come.”

Bring the public cloud experience on premises to free developers to
build anywhere

NetApp offers users a true hybrid multicloud experience with a
consistent service consumption model across public clouds and on
premises. Now, customers can simplify effective
infrastructure-as-a-service delivery on premises and deliver new
services and applications faster with NetApp Cloud Data Services on
NetApp HCI, including:

  • NetApp Kubernetes Service on NetApp HCI. Provides an automated
    Kubernetes deployment engine, Application Marketplace, and Application
    Orchestration, now with NetApp HCI as a deployable region. Customers
    can meet the demands of the business by automating management
    complexities and without sacrificing performance for scale limits,
    freeing developers to move from idea to deployment in record time.
  • Cloud Volumes on NetApp HCI. High-performance persistent
    storage, delivered through a streamlined and simplified user
    experience, in all major public clouds, now extended on premises with
    NetApp HCI. Now, customers can simplify how they deploy and manage
    services across their premises and the public cloud in a frictionless,
    cloudlike consumption experience.
