NetApp has introduced new hybrid cloud offerings that give customers “the unprecedented ability” to use data for competitive advantage.
The announcements expand the company’s Data Fabric solutions and services portfolio to include the “industry’s first” enterprise-scale hyper converged solution (HCI), new consumption purchase models, improved all-flash capabilities, and hybrid cloud offerings that simplify moving data to and from the public cloud.
With digital transformation at the top of their agendas, global business leaders need new ways to harness their most valuable asset — their data. Time, skill, and budget gaps pose traditional challenges, but organisations must also contend with exploding volumes of data that are much more distributed, dynamic, and diverse.
“The organisations that are defining the future recognise that unleashing the full potential of their data is essential for effective digital transformation and long-term competitive advantage,” said George Kurian, chief executive officer, NetApp. “NetApp is uniquely capable of helping customers to unify their data to achieve success in the digital era.”
Simon Robinson, Research vice president, at 451 Research, said, “To succeed, customers need to change their mindsets on data management, to liberate themselves from data siloes and seek approaches that unite data no matter where it resides. NetApp’s expanded portfolio, with its new HCI, hybrid cloud, and consumption model solutions, provides the means to maximise the impact of data, no matter where it lives, and create new value across the organisation.”
