Tech ONTAP Podcast - Episode 11

The public cloud is the future growth area for many organizations, enabling rapid development, prototyping, on-demand capacity, and many more features for building the next generation of applications.  While cloud may be the future of applications, much of the data still resides in on premises resources.  Bringing the data to the application is a complex problem that is being addressed head-on by NetApp using the Data Fabric.

This week our guest is Kevin Hill, Cloud Solutions Architect for NetApp.  Kevin talks with the team about Cloud ONTAP and how it enables organizations to take advantage of the resources they need in the cloud.  We also talk about the Data Fabric and leveraging Cloud ONTAP as an extension of the fabric that allows our customers to consume storage where they need it, when they need it.
