NetApp, a global, cloud-powered, data-centric software firm, recently announced continued innovations as well as solutions for offering enterprises more simplicity, security, and flexibility in their multi-cloud environments.

NetApp sources added that these new prospects comprise better ransomware protection, the hybrid cloud storage in a single subscription, unified management in a single user interface, and close collaboration with VMware to help transition workloads to the cloud.

As enterprises acquire public cloud services to augment their existing on-premises data centers, these combined infrastructures become more disparate, inconsistent, and fragmented over time. These multi-cloud silos are inherently more complex to manage due to dealing with multiple disparate environments.

Recently, NetApp claimed that they are delivering a unified as well as consistent hybrid multi-cloud experience, empowering the clients to run and manage a single platform spanning from on-premises to the global biggest public clouds.

Walid Issa, Senior Manager, PreSales and Solutions Engineering – Middle East Region at NetApp stated: “As organizations today explore the promise of hybrid multi-cloud 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.”

Scott Sinclair, practice director at ESG

Scott Sinclair, practice director at ESG stated: “Organizations today are looking for flexibility both on-premises as well as across cloud providers and are investing in as-a-service consumption models to help achieve this. NetApp’s approach with Keystone is targeted at that need; offering hybrid cloud simplicity and flexibility that allows users to accelerate their IT objectives with management, orchestration, and billing wrapped into a single subscription and experience. Keystone’s transferable subscription model also supports future cloud migration planning to any major cloud provider, with enterprise-level storage capability and integrated data protection.”

Narayan Bharadwaj, Vice President of Cloud Solutions at VMware

Narayan Bharadwaj, vice president of Cloud Solutions at VMware stated: “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.”

The effortless, secure, and flexible enhancements to NetApp’s hybrid cloud portfolio comprise off:

Industry-Leading Hybrid Cloud Simplicity Experience – By delivering everything “as a service,” NetApp simplifies and optimizes hybrid cloud environments with new capabilities, comprising the following trends:

Hybrid cloud Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS) in a single, flexible subscription with Keystone. Organizations can flexibly move workloads to and from the cloud in a single contract.

Additionally, to manage and monitor 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 Matters1 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 on operations.

Accelerating Enterprise Cloud Transformation – NetApp is empowering customers to “modernize to the cloud” using a supplemental datastore for data-intensive, storage demanding workloads running in a single or across multi-cloud environments.

NetApp claimed that they are the only cloud storage service provider currently to be certified and become supported for use as an external supplemental datastore for VMware Cloud environments running in the largest public clouds.
