Transform the way you build, manage, license, and pay for hybrid cloud­—on prem, in the cloud, all on your terms  

If financial flexibility is how you like to travel, NetApp is your first class ticket. We offer simple monthly subscriptions for storage as a service on premises, in the public cloud, or next to it. Go ahead, use OPEX instead of CAPEX, manage it yourself or we’ll manage it for you. Your onramp to cloud just got a whole lot simpler, faster, and less costly.

Use cases

Whether migrating data and production applications or extending your data center for backup and recovery, it’s important to move fast without creating more complexity. That’s exactly what your data fabric from NetApp allows you to do.

Data protection in the cloud done right

Whether leveraging the cloud for protecting production workload data or creating complete secondary DR environments for business continuity, you need solutions that deliver. Our automation capabilities and a consolidated management and monitoring view provide you with an integrated user experience and consistent storage layer across your entire backup and DR environment.

Move it to the cloud without moving a muscle

Use the public cloud to move cold data to a less-expensive capacity tier while freeing up higher performance storage space on premise. NetApp solutions enable automated tiering from on-premises storage to the cloud, as well as a consistent storage layer with a single console for ease of management and monitoring across your hybrid environment.

Green Pillars

The only consistency is change

You may decide to run some production workloads on premises while running others side-by-side in the public cloud. Or perhaps you’ll want to shift workloads to different platform as your business needs change. NetApp gives you the flexibility to optimize your workloads with ease via a consistent storage layer and a common control plane for monitoring, managing, moving, and controlling workloads across your hybrid cloud.

Your data is safe with us

Putting sensitive data in the public cloud delivers cost, performance, scale, portability, and availability advantages, but it requires a rigorous approach to security and compliance. NetApp operates with a consistent data encryption methodology on premises and in the cloud to ensure your data is as safe and secure as possible. And our Cloud Data Sense services provide you with a simple way of maintaining governance and compliance across your hybrid cloud.
