Enterprise cloud services based on Citrix CloudPlatform need a storage infrastructure that is available, cost-effective, and secure. NetApp® storage integration with CloudPlatform makes deployment of cloud services simpler, faster, and more scalable.
Storage management tools for CloudPlatform reduce the integration burden for service providers and IT departments deploying cloud services. When building clouds to meet the distinctive requirements of both traditional enterprises and service providers, these tools must offer more than just the basics.
NetApp storage management tools augment the basics—such as resource pooling, on-demand self-service, rapid elasticity, automation, and multi-tenancy—to also deliver scalability and choice, allowing resources to be consumed in a variety of ways. NetApp private cloud services provide necessary isolation from shared public infrastructures; our hybrid cloud solutions bridge from enterprise datacenters with security and transparency.
NetApp takes a leadership role in the development of open-source cloud management alternatives such as Apache CloudStack, open-source software designed to deploy and manage large networks of virtual machines. NetApp storage supports CloudStack, and Citrix CloudPlatform incorporates the open-source CloudStack platform as fully supported commercial software.
