Cloud Volumes Platform is now available across all clouds – one single pane of glass that gives you easy access to of all your data, wherever it resides.If we’ve learned anything in 2020, it’s to expect the unexpected. And we quickly found out that both agility and resilience are critical to success in a disrupted world. At NetApp, we have been planning for all of this for some time — well, maybe not for everything 2020 has unleashed, but certainly for big, wholesale changes. We’ve been planning to land on our feet — and to make sure you do too. Think, landing like a cat. Or a ninja.

 

That’s why we’ve pulled it all together for you. Our Cloud Volumes platform is now available across all clouds — one single pane of glass that gives you easy access to and management of all your data, wherever it resides, on-premises anywhere or in any cloud, public or private. You need clarity and we are delivering. And we are providing more than just data storage, we are enabling data management. For the DevOps team and the Sys Admins we have created a consistent API across all clouds for all your Cloud Volume storage, data, and data management services.

 

It did not take a crystal ball to figure out that data is headed for the cloud. But we know you need it to be faster and applicable to both more users and more applications. And simpler.  Right now, it can be downright confusing. IDG’s June 2020 survey of cloud adoption found that over 60% of respondents reported running workloads and apps “all or mostly on-prem”. In this same survey, IDG found 59% of these firms plan to run apps and workloads “mostly or entirely in the cloud” within the next 18 months — a massive and rapid change. We know many of you have cloud-first mandates and that some of you are struggling to achieve them. Those of you with challenging, complex workloads, petabytes of data, legacy systems, and data in multiple places are tasked with challenges that go far beyond lift-and-shift. You are exactly who we had in mind with our latest announcement.

 

You need a solution that is up to the Herculean task of migrating decades of work, while also ensuring that your business keeps running day-to-day. You have enough complexity in your world without trying to detangle the intricate web of clouds. Let us help.

 

In a world of digital transformation, we know you are required to innovate faster than ever before. Now, you’ll gain best-of-breed infrastructure and out-of-the-box data and metadata services, connected with a consistent API. At the same time, we help to make all your enterprise applications run better.

 

At NetApp, we are like the Switzerland of cloud. We are working with ALL the cloud providers, so no matter where your data currently resides — or where it ends up — you can get all the benefits of our 28 years of experience in storage working for you. In the cloud. ANY cloud.

 

The NetApp Cloud Volumes platform is now available across all major cloud providers. We’ve released fully managed, native cloud volumes on Azure, Google Cloud, and AWS. Pick a cloud. Or two. Or build your own. Your approach to data should be the same no matter where your data resides. Your ability to work with data should be best-of-breed.

 

That’s where we come in. With true enterprise-grade data management in the cloud and on-prem, we can now deliver all the capabilities you love from ONTAP across multiple clouds and on-premises locations. Simultaneously.
