NetApp Introduces Solutions to Improve Control, Simplify Movement of Data in the Hybrid Cloud

Expanded data fabric solutions and services speed data access and visibility and enhance data protection and security.

NetApp, of Sunnyvale, Calif., has announced new data fabric solutions and services that increase control and improve the secure movement of data across the hybrid cloud. The company also introduced new versions of NetApp AltaVault, StorageGRID Webscale, and SnapCenter technologies to help customers get the value of their data from anywhere in the hybrid cloud.

NetApp’s data fabric solutions and services allow customers to control, manage, secure, and move data across on-premises and public cloud resources to architect the IT environment that best meets their needs. They include:

  • Cloud Sync Service—This on-demand software-as-a-service offering simplifies cloud service usage by allowing users to continuously move and synchronize data between on-premises storage and Amazon Web Services (AWS) Simple Storage Service (S3) in the cloud. Customers gain greater visibility into data by leveraging AWS analytics tools with on-premises data. They also pay only for cloud resources when needed. Cloud Sync is currently available through AWS Marketplace.
  • NetApp Private Storage (NPS) as a Service—NetApp is expanding the availability of NPS for Cloud by making it available as a service through a partner delivery ecosystem, including Arrow, Faction, ASE, DARZ, and ThinkOn. This new opex-based consumption model, which leverages colocation partners such as Equinix, enables customers to scale cloud capacity, performance, and cost. With NetApp’s architecture, customers can also securely and simultaneously connect to multiple public clouds.
  • Cloud Control for Microsoft Office 365—This SaaS offering provides a simple way to control and protect data stored in Microsoft Office 365, including SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, and Exchange Online. The offering also provides support for data retention in cloud services such as Amazon S3 and Azure, as well as on-premises storage.
  • Cloud Backup Solution—Adding to the existing Data Fabric Solution for Cloud Disaster Recovery, this solution delivers end-to-end cloud backup for NetApp ONTAP customers using NetApp SnapMirror technology. Through integration with AltaVault and SnapCenter, customers can now assign hybrid cloud backup targets and search and recover files from on-premises and public cloud repositories.

“As the flexibility and economy of scale in IT continue to expand and as insights from distributed data become more critical, the case for the hybrid cloud has never been stronger,” said Tony Bishop, vice president, enterprise vertical marketing, Equinix Inc. “We’re excited to team with NetApp to help [organizations] successfully deploy hybrid cloud architectures to maximize data visibility and the performance of their enterprise applications.”

NetApp also introduced new releases of:

  • AltaVault—This cloud-integrated storage solution speeds recovery and reduces risk, enabling customers to securely back up data to on-premises and public clouds at up to 90 percent lower cost compared to traditional on-premises solutions, according to NetApp. The new version includes integration with SnapMirror, which makes it easier for customers using ONTAP to back up to AltaVault.
  • StorageGRID Webscale—NetApp’s object-based storage solution for web applications is designed for the hybrid cloud to store and manage massive datasets in a single global namespace. The new version offers a full solution stack integrated and distributed by NetApp. The solution also has improved data†protection through support for Amazon S3 versioning†and an enhanced user†interface,†including the capability to simulate the effects of changing data storage policies on billions of objects.
  • SnapCenter—The latest release centralizes data protection and clone management with new application plug-ins, including the capability to create custom plug-ins for third-party applications and databases. The release also includes an intuitive graphical interface with predefined protection relationships and backup policies for cloud-integrated backup, which enables companies to protect more of their data across all application environments.
  • Service-Level Implementation from NetApp Professional Services—This service bundle enables organizations to provide storage services to their users just like a cloud provider. It also delivers processes and procedures that reduce the complexity and cost of storage operations while increasing performance.†
