free-cloud-storage-netapp I’m pleased to share that NetApp is offering free storage on Google Cloud for IT teams addressing the digital fallout of the pandemic. Technology has been our connective fiber during this time, keeping people connected, keeping businesses running, and offering hope for a rapid medical solution. Behind the scenes, overburdened IT teams are racing to maintain the performance of systems and applications often without access to their data centers even as that burden continues to grow. 

To give IT teams more flexibility with their storage infrastructure, NetApp is making 25TB of its file storage service for Google Cloud available free of charge for 90 days. To qualify for the offer go to the registration page and a NetApp cloud specialist will contact you to help with the onboarding process. 

Supporting Healthcare Organizations to Deliver Better Information and Care

Healthcare organizations are maintaining the highest standards of patient care, while life sciences companies are rushing to accelerate the analysis of critical data to find new solutions that will end the pandemic. These vital organizations are turning to the cloud to scale their operations, provide telehealth programs to patients, and to provide access to accurate data for research and at the point of care.

By partnering with Google Cloud and making our jointly engineered cloud-based file storage free in the crucial months ahead, we can help IT teams store data confidently, knowing it is encrypted and protected with unlimited NetApp® Snapshot copies for quick recovery.  Cloud volumes can be quickly scaled to meet any demand, no matter how high. Our goal is to remove barriers and provide access to important information quickly and easily, eliminating the need to administrate data resources to deliver better patient outcomes.

Helping Retailers Manage Increased Demand and Shifting Expectations

Some retail companies are facing unparalleled online demand for groceries and other essentials. Online traffic has surged to Black Friday/Cyber Monday levels, pushing retail IT teams to their limits. Retailers are running out of storage capacity and need to leverage the cloud for extra capacity to support the increased demand from their customers.

Other retailers find themselves in a liquidity crisis. Their very survival might depend on their ability to reduce costs. Accelerating migration to the cloud and rethinking the framework of IT technology investments can help significantly. By reducing costs through things like our file-based cloud storage, companies can improve their efficiency and cost baseline. By bringing their IT operations back into equilibrium, retail companies will be able to better meet customer needs.
