The latest NetApp on NetApp Too Long; Didn’t Read (TL;DR) video series on CloudOne is now live! In this series, I discuss NetApp® IT’s journey to build and manage this highly automated hybrid multicloud platform for application creation and operations, as well as take you under the hood to look at the NetApp and industry technologies that enable it.
Our vision of CloudOne began about 4 years ago when we recognized that our DevOps needs had outgrown the boundaries of traditional IT infrastructure – then largely a patchwork of platforms and resources supported by servers and storage in the data center. It simply could no longer keep up with the rapid and frequent changes to software that are critical in application development, nor could it effectively meet developers’ rising data-driven demands. We wanted a single, cloud-led, integrated platform that had everything built in that we needed to create applications. However, there wasn’t anything on the market that came close to meeting all our needs at that time.
Our team began to envision an IT infrastructure that could move at the speed of business change. After much discussion and evaluation, we set out to build our new platform from the ground up.
We established four key goals:
As the Senior Director for Platform, Cloud and Infrastructure, Mike leads NetApp IT’s hybrid cloud and DevOps platform strategy―orchestrated and managed by an automation ecosystem―to create a holistic environment for cloud-aware enterprise applications. Mike leads the automation, infrastructure, cloud, and service management teams for NetApp which culminate to create NetApp IT’s DevOps platform, “CloudOne”. He also spearheads the internal feedback program between IT and product development and marketing, discussing how IT uses NetApp products and services.
Brush up on the latest trends and developments in cloud, on premises, and everywhere in between. This is where it all gets real, with a cherry on top.
Explore a wide range of open forums where you can post questions, share answers and just generally get smart on all the NetApp technologies that matter most to you.
