A New Way to Cloud

Nancy Hart

NetApp Cloud Sync

Break free of infrastructure constraints.

We’re often asked what makes the NetApp® HCI solution so different from other products on the market. When answering, we start the basic definition of HCI. Others say it stands for hyperconverged infrastructure – and that accurately describes their products. Our definition? Hybrid cloud infrastructure.

Hyperconverged Infrastructure Versus Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure

Although small installations gained some benefits from first-generation hyperconverged infrastructure, enterprises that first adopted it for its simplicity, ability to eliminate silos, and deployment speed soon discovered that its performance suffers at scale.

Developers, frustrated with performance issues, are turning to the public cloud for agile “swipe-and-go” services. This approach can increase the budget and time to deploy and can introduce security risks, negating the cost-savings intent of the hyperconverged infrastructure investment.

The NetApp hybrid cloud infrastructure solution was built cloud-first and enables you to move your IT from a cost center to a service center that accelerates your business and drives revenue. It allows you to:

  • Reduce friction
  • Eliminate constraints and command your system performance
  • Deliver new business faster

NetApp technology helps you make full use of your hypervisor, containers, and the cloud of your choice. We don’t compete with public cloud services; we partner with them to give you the most flexible options for business success.

Learn how we can help you converge hybrid cloud services between traditional and new applications, and between your data centers and all of your public clouds. Read our brief, The Hybrid Multicloud Experience, for a deeper dive into what we call the hybrid multicloud experience.

Hear from experts on bringing together the best of both worlds with the public and private cloud...
