We understand your challenges

Data is your lifeblood. It’s ours too. Our goal at NetApp is to help you collaborate, create, and realize your goals, as well as your customers’, through fast, easy, secure access to your data, wherever you choose to store it and however and whenever you want to access it. We protect that data as though it were our own. That is our mission, to support your creativity and your purpose.

Hybrid cloud world

Content lifecycle management

As content continually increases along with customers’ expectations, and budget continues to be squeezed, it can be challenging to archive and access your data in and out of the cloud to free up space.

With a NetApp® StorageGRID® object-based storage solution, you can create a seamless hybrid cloud that protects valuable assets and still manages data to and from public clouds as needed.

Accelerated adoption of cloud scaling

Bring the reliability and capabilities of on-premises data management to the cloud, without having to expend time and energy to refactor and learn cloud-specific tools.

NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP® combines data control with enterprise-class storage features for various use cases, including file shares and block-level storage serving NAS and SAN protocols (NFS, SMB/CIFS, and iSCSI), disaster recovery, backup and archive, DevOps, databases (SQL, Oracle, NoSQL), or any other enterprise workload.

Performance and reliability

No delays in media content

From live multi-cam events to UHD postproduction, you rely on your storage systems to capture and deliver challenging video formats at scale.

NetApp flash and disk systems lead the industry in all categories of performance—zero latency, hundreds of GB/s bandwidth, and millions of IOPS. Scale-out architectures can go even further.

Data protection

Losing data is never an option, but with massive volumes across many departments and geographies, maintaining a consistent and affordable backup strategy can be very difficult.

NetApp ONTAP is designed on a foundation of replicating and incrementing data on a granular level to allow almost instant NetApp Snapshot™ copies, highly efficient backups, and multivolume data deduplication.

Costs and scalability

Affordable data scaling

As nice as it would be to have every bit of data on flash storage devices, it’s just not practical or affordable for any company.

A data fabric based on NetApp systems automatically moves data into the most appropriate type of storage for the job—flash for demanding workloads, disk for availability and accessibility, and object-based storage for low-cost preservation of archived data.

Get ahead of storage administration costs

As Comcast grows, both organically and through acquisitions, so do the disparity and complexity of your storage environment.

Moving to a consolidated data fabric approach delivered by NetApp simplifies IT infrastructure and administration, reduces redundant data, and speeds access to assets for all departments.

Mitigating Risk

Future-proofing

One of the risks of operating in a high-tech environment is making infrastructure decisions without knowing whether you’re acting at the right point in time. What happens if you miss a key enabling technology? How do you maintain your competitive advantage?

The NetApp Keystone program gives you the flexibility to purchase in ways that best fit your specific situation. The program offers capex, opex, and flexible scaling to eliminate the risk of technology purchases and help you to stay ahead of the competition.

Ecosystem alliances

The Comcast data management environment is an ecosystem of multiple products and services from multiple vendors. If a problem arises, you can’t have vendors kicking issues around among themselves—you want it solved.

At NetApp, we always aim to coordinate and facilitate smooth operations. Our knowledgeable onsite experts understand how to work in heterogeneous environments.

Transform your IT environment

Get the most out of your existing infrastructure

Collecting, consolidating, and analyzing a modern IT environment that includes on-premises systems, clouds, and virtual machines can feel almost impossible. Pressure to reduce costs and improve service can feel overwhelming, especially with limited information about how to proceed. Many media companies also struggle to capitalize on the promise of the cloud.

NetApp’s proven Cloud Design Workshop methodology gives you a comprehensive understanding of your existing IT environment. Then we work with you to build a strategy for IT transformation that optimizes internal private clouds as well as leveraging public cloud use cases, to reduce costs and improve the responsiveness of your business.
