NetApp Cloud Volumes for AWS
NetApp Cloud Volumes for AWS

You are responsible for finding new ways to accelerate your business, using data to drive real, bottom-line results. To do that, you want to migrate more and more on-premises workloads to the public cloud, yet you’re faced with differences in file formats, slow file-storage performance and the threat of inconsistent data. Plus, no one said all of this was cheap.  Ingress and egress charges continue to sky-rocket. The public clouds should be your saving grace, and services that live there should handle any workload you throw at them. You shouldn’t have to choose between things like high performance and data consistency. What if you could have multiprotocol cloud volumes with the performance and advanced features to run any workload? To go from zero to 100TB in 8 seconds, fully automated?  Now that’s a proper service!
