Here’s the next installment of our series about connecting on-premises infrastructure with public cloud (revisit parts 1 and 2 if you need), moving toward fully integrated hybrid multicloud. And, as we wrote earlier, full integration isn’t a reality today. It’s a place we’re aiming for, and at NetApp, we’re aiming from the perspective of data. Our view is that hybrid multicloud begins with solving the challenges of data—data protection, data locality, data inertia, and all the other obstacles we’ve faced for years. Our vision is a truly integrated world from edge to core to cloud. In this world, data and services move freely between platforms, clouds, and environments—maintaining visibility
But there’s another vision that already is a reality: a data fabric powered by NetApp® solutions. In this post, we’ll take you through this ever-evolving reality. Our approach to integrating storage across edge, core, and cloud gives organizations ways to tackle current problems and position themselves for the future.
