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

02 November 2016

NetApp has announced data fabric solutions and services that maximize 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 extract 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. The solutions are as follows:

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 in the cloud. Customers gain greater visibility into data by seamlessly leveraging AWS analytics tools with on-premises data. They experience a lower total cost of ownership by paying 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 growing partner delivery ecosystem, including Arrow, Faction, ASE, DARZ and ThinkOn. This opex-based consumption model, which leverages colocation partners such as Equinix, enables customers to scale cloud capacity, performance and cost.

Cloud Control for Microsoft Office 365—This SaaS offering provides a simple way to control and protect critical 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 simplified end-to-end cloud backup for NetApp® ONTAP® customers using NetApp® SnapMirror® technology. Through integration with AltaVault and SnapCenter, customers can now easily assign hybrid cloud backup targets and quickly search and recover files from on-premises and public cloud repositories.

Also new from NetApp® are:

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% lower cost compared to traditional on-premises solutions. 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 back-up policies for cloud-integrated backup, which enables enterprises to protect more of their data across all application environments.

Service-Level Implementation from NetApp® Professional Services—This service bundle enables enterprises 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.
