According to a new press release, “NetApp, the data authority in a hybrid cloud world, today announced that it has further enhanced the company’s Data Fabric, already an integral part of over 300,000 systems and software deployments. The Data Fabric is strengthened with new software releases, including for NetApp® SolidFire® Element® OS, StorageGRID® Webscale, ONTAP®, and OnCommand® Insight software. As key elements to the NetApp Data Fabric, these solutions deliver consistent and integrated hybrid cloud data services to help customers accelerate and protect data, reduce costs, and easily build next-generation data center architectures.”
Laura DuBois, IDC group vice president of Enterprise Storage, Server and Infrastructure Software, commented, “Proliferating application deployment models and data formats across hybrid IT results in organizational data being distributed across on-premises and cloud environments… This creates challenges for IT staff that range from data access and visibility, to protection and application integration, to security and compliance, to labor-intensive processes for data placement. The NetApp Data Fabric offers a range of hybrid cloud data services to address these challenges and allow organizations to efficiently manage and derive value from the totality of their data.”
The release adds, “Companies understand the need to become data-centric organizations to drive business value and to enable new customer touchpoints through technology. As a result, IT leaders are under tremendous pressure to transform, but they are required to accomplish this transformation with limited time, skills, and budget. The NetApp Data Fabric offers a holistic approach that is secure, efficient, and future-proof and that provides freedom of choice.”
