For almost 30 years, NetApp has focused on one thing—your data—and today works continuously to improve how it’s managed, stored, analyzed, protected, and moved. We started with traditional on-premises storage models that required significant upfront capital investments. Later we added a rich portfolio of cloud data services, fully on-demand and based on operational expenditure (opex). We then realized that we needed to fill the gap between the two models, so our customers could have cloudlike experiences on premises. Hence, the creation of the NetApp®Keystone™ portfolio, your bridge to the cloud.
On the 1-year anniversary of the general availability of NetApp Keystone Flex Subscription, we’re proud to announce Flex Subscription 2.1. This release delivers new features for service providers, a partner-delivered FlexPod® as-a-service solution, additional cloud support, a live demo, and integration with Equinix colocation services. I’ll go into more details on the new features in this blog post, and you can read about the Equinix partnership and joint hybrid cloud solution here.
