With the announcement on data fabric, NetApp is delivering a truly seamless hybrid multicloud experience. It includes availability of NetApp Cloud Data Services on NetApp HCI; the ability to expand with persistent storage across the biggest public clouds; and also 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.
Any cloud, one experience
“NetApp’s data fabric offerings enable enterprises to seamlessly manage data across a multitude of IT infrastructures. They cover on premises and multiple public cloud service platforms,” said Deepak Mohan, research director, IDC. “IDC research shows that the gap between businesses that embrace data and those that do not has dramatically widened. The C-suite also increasingly prioritizes data as a strategic asset. Consequently, NetApp’s new multi-platform offerings empower IT organizations with the flexibility and consistency needed to maximize the value potential of their data.”
“The way organizations invest in and consume IT resources continues to evolve – hybrid multicloud is therefore clearly 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. Furthermore, it will benefit innovation in the years to come.”
