NetApp has announced solutions that provide enterprises with additional simplicity, security, and flexibility for managing their hybrid multi-cloud environment. The new capabilities include improved ransomware protection, hybrid cloud storage in a single subscription, univied management in a single user interface, and close collaboration with VMware to help transition workloads to the cloud.

NetApp has announced solutions that provide enterprises with additional simplicity, security, and flexibility for managing their hybrid multi-cloud environment. The new capabilities include improved ransomware protection, hybrid cloud storage in a single subscription, univied management in a single user interface, and close collaboration with VMware to help transition workloads to the cloud.

As enterprises continue to acquire public cloud services to augment their existing on-premises data centers, these combined infrastructures become more disparate, inconsistent, and fragmented. Multicloud silos are inherently more challenging and complex to manage due to multiple disparate environments.

NetApp addresses the complexities in managing these disparate multi-cloud environments by delivering a unified and consistent hybrid multi-cloud experience, allowing customers to run and manage a single platform that spans from on-premises to the world’s biggest public clouds.

As NetApp’s Ronen Schwartz, senior vice president, Cloud Volumes Service, explained:

“As organizations today explore the promise of hybrid multicloud environments, they are keen to avoid complexity, security, and cost-efficiency challenges. With NetApp’s simplified management and consumption experience, organizations can enjoy improved security, manageability, speed of operations, and cost savings – ultimately allowing them to be more responsive to the growing needs of their business by delivering capabilities faster, and keeping data available and protected no matter where it lives.”  

NetApp’s hybrid cloud portfolio includes: 

  • Hybrid Cloud Simplicity Experience – By delivering everything “as a service,” NetApp simplifies and optimizes hybrid cloud environments with new capabilities, including: 
    • Hybrid cloud Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS) in a single, flexible subscription with Keystone. Organizations have the flexibility to move workloads to and from the cloud in a single contract. 
    • In addition to managing and monitoring data storage, protection, governance, and tiering across multi-cloud environments, Cloud Manager can now manage Keystone services, track software licenses, monitor infrastructure health, and provide proactive recommendations that optimize costs and data protection with automated actions.

  • Cyber Resilience for Today’s Hybrid Cloud – The rise of ransomware over the past few years is a growing problem for enterprises. IDC’s 2021 Ransomware Study: Where You Are Matters! found that more than one-third of organizations worldwide have experienced a ransomware attack or breach that blocked access to systems or data in the 12 months prior.

With NetApp’s new, powerful, built-in cyber resilience capabilities that include anti-ransomware, data protection, and security, organizations can mitigate unauthorized user access and threats to data from ransomware attacks. Customers can protect a multitude of workloads, enterprise apps, virtualized workloads, and modern containerized applications against security breaches, quickly detect attacks and rapidly recover data before experiencing any impact to operations. 

  • Accelerating Enterprise Cloud Transformation – NetApp empowers customers to “modernize to the cloud” using a supplemental datastore for data-intensive, storage-demanding workloads running in a single or across multicloud environments. NetApp is the only cloud storage service provider to be certified and supported for use as an external supplemental datastore for VMware Cloud environments running in the largest public clouds. 

Narayan Bharadwaj, vice president of Cloud Solutions at VMware, said:

“Organizations across all industries rely on the combination of VMware and NetApp as the platform of choice for delivering business-critical workloads. NetApp is now able to deliver the same levels of enterprise-class data management that our mutual customers have enjoyed for decades on-premises to workloads running in any of the major public clouds.”
