As the data authority for hybrid cloud, NetApp understands the value of the access, management, and control of data. The NetApp® data fabric provides a unified data management environment that spans across edge devices, data centers, and multiple hyperscale clouds. The data fabric gives organizations of all sizes the ability to accelerate critical applications, gain data visibility, streamline data protection, and increase operational agility.
NetApp AI solutions are based on the following key building blocks:
- ONTAP® software enables AI and deep learning both on premises and in the hybrid cloud.
- AFF all-flash systems accelerate AI and deep learning workloads and remove performance bottlenecks.
- ONTAP Select software enables efficient data collection at the edge, using IoT devices and aggregations points.
- Cloud Volumes can be used to rapidly prototype new projects and provide the ability to move AI data to and from the cloud.
In addition, NetApp has begun incorporating big data analytics and artificial intelligence into its own products and services. For example, Active IQ® uses billions of data points, predictive analytics, and powerful machine learning to deliver proactive customer support recommendations for complex IT environments. Active IQ is a hybrid cloud application that was built using the same NetApp products and technologies our customers use to build AI solutions for a variety of use cases.
