How NetApp Partners Can Help Customers Gain Control of Unstructured Data

Meghan Cevey


When it comes to data, we live in an increasingly unstructured world. Big data, IoT, AI, machine learning, advanced analytics, and more all generate and require mind-boggling amounts of data. On the plus side, all this data is powering the next generation of innovation, from self-driving cars to social media to new medicines to more powerful business insights. However, if it’s your job to manage all this data, it can be difficult to even know where to start.

With NetApp® solutions for unstructured data, our partners can help meet their customers’ needs for data durability, availability, performance, and cost by delivering a hybrid multicloud experience. NetApp brings together the best of public and private clouds to provide at scale the frictionless consumption, self-service, automation, programmable APIs, and infrastructure independence it takes to drive business success today.

To help bring our partners up to speed about the opportunities of unstructured data and how NetApp can help, we’ve created a three-part webcast series:

Enterprises need compute and storage to be elastic, simple, and seamless, so that the right data is always in the right place, at the right time, and on the right storage tier. NetApp unstructured data solutions provide the object storage necessary to manage an increasingly decentralized and heterogeneous data and application landscape.

Our technologies help our partners deliver easy-to-use, massively scalable, distributed unstructured data repositories for object applications (Amazon S3, Swift) and file applications (SMB, NFS) so your customers can dynamically manage their hot and cold data storage. And as an eleventh-generation object store with more than 15 years of production deployments in the most demanding industries, StorageGRID helps our partners offer solutions that are proven to deliver massive scale and long-term retention.

Our unstructured storage solutions are exactly what your customers need to manage their unstructured data. Watch our webcast series to get up to speed with the challenges your customers are facing and to learn what you can do to help.
