What happens when you take two complementary flavors that are good independently and you put them together? Peanut butter and jelly, cookies and cream, dark chocolate and fine red wine … you get the point. They go from good to great! Similarly, when you connect two companies with complementary services, culture, and values, they can offer a solution that will not only satisfy but delight their customers. Welcome, NetApp® Cloud Volumes for Google Cloud Platform (GCP).


Customers want file services in the cloud but need assurance they meet the requirements of their demanding applications. Cloud architects want to migrate workloads to the cloud, but it’s not easy without the right tools to manage the migration. Developers are challenged to release new products, features, and fixes at a rate none of us could imagine even 5 years ago. Every second counts when trying to meet these development cycles.


NetApp Cloud Volumes for GCP answers the call. The service was developed in collaboration with the Google Cloud team with an intense focus on customer needs and user experience.  Together, NetApp and Google Cloud provide a tightly integrated, self-service, multiprotocol, file service offering. Customers provision, automate, and scale through simple API calls or the  Google Cloud Launcher GUI. You can sync datasets automatically, take snapshots of your data regularly, or even create full copies of your dataset in seconds! All without impacting application performance.


So how fast you ask? With Cloud Volumes users can replicate workspaces up to 10 times faster and reduce build times by a factor of 30.


So, what will you do with all that extra time on your hands? I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.
