Bengaluru: NetApp, the data authority for hybrid cloud, announced NetApp Cloud Volumes for Google Cloud Platform, thus providing a fully-managed, cloud-native file storage service that's integrated with the latter.
This comes as part of a partnership that combines the reach of NetApp's data services with Google Cloud's leadership in application development, analytics and machine learning.
In addition, NetApp has introduced a high performance, cloud-connected flash system to power artificial intelligence (AI) and compute-intensive applications, as well as innovative new software to ensure superior cloud-architected infrastructure for data retention compliance.
Harnessing all the data required for effective AI applications is a challenge for traditional solutions. NetApp brings together leading public cloud data services and the most cloud-connected flash solutions, through the Data Fabric, to help customers automate and monetise their data assets.
"Companies are increasingly looking at using data and cloud technology to accelerate their businesses. As the leader in hybrid cloud data services, NetApp is uniquely positioned to help them create new market opportunities by rapidly deploying new technologies. Only NetApp makes it easy to integrate data with performance-leading flash and the world's leading clouds for elastic compute and powerful analytic engines," said George Kurian, CEO of NetApp.
Furthermore, NetApp's automated syncs, NetApp Snapshot copies and rapid clones will support free-flowing data, allowing developers to accelerate workspace creation and build cycles. The service is ideal for the migration of any workload including file services, analytics, database, disaster recovery and DevOps.
