Gained choice, maximum application availability, and insurance against vendor lock-in
Running a cloud business on OpenStack is a clear statement for open source and its cost advantages. When STC looked for data storage to power its OpenStack cloud, it looked for high flexibility to deliver new services and for cost efficiency to support competitive end-user pricing. Finally, STC chose NetApp to leverage industry-leading integration with OpenStack.
OpenStack is becoming de facto for big cloud players and has clear cost advantages over proprietary solutions. Already today we save 25% on operational expenses, and we avoid the downfall of a vendor lock-in.
