Migration acceleration to GovCloud

NetApp for Department of Defense Series

Session 2 of 2


For modern warfighters, maintaining sufficient operation tempo requires applications and virtual machines operating in GovCloud– now. This means migration without months of refactoring. With over 90 percent of DoD’s virtualized applications and workloads running on VMware, migration to the VMware Cloud (VMC) in GovCloud is accelerated. VMware recognized that running heavy data workloads at scale in the cloud is expensive. NetApp solved for this by being VMC’s datastore, saving warfighting up to 50% in budget, while protecting, securing, and managing workloads in GovCloud at scale. 

Hear how NetApp partner WWT is helping DoD users migrate fast and easily and how the VMC datastore and Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP can accelerate your move to VMC in GovCloud.
