Hybrid cloud solutions

: Unified experience, simplified everything

Changing business needs require a hybrid multicloud platform with “as a service” simplicity and complete compatibility everywhere. With a common approach and experience, NetApp helps you leverage the cloud for faster, more dynamic delivery of services and frictionless data movement.

Why NetApp for hybrid cloud?

What if you could move your data and workloads wherever you wanted while managing everything with ease, security, agility, and compliance? Enter NetApp. We give you the freedom to manage applications and data everywhere across hybrid multicloud environments. Our data management and storage solutions integrate with the world’s leading cloud providers, giving you one consistent environment, unified data services, and centralized management that enables visibility both on premises and in the cloud. Let’s do this.

Build agility into your hybrid cloud strategy

Your wish list is long: achieve the right balance of resources on premises and in the cloud, simplify infrastructure management and monitoring, control costs, reduce risk, and protect data across your hybrid cloud or multicloud environment.

Guess what? You really can have it all—without refactoring applications, breaking workflows, or creating vendor lock-in.

Hybrid cloud use cases

Whether you want to migrate data and production applications or extend your data center to the cloud for backup and recovery, here are six ways you can make the shift to hybrid cloud today.

Data protection

Back up and restore data from your premises to the public cloud, consolidate datastores, and create disaster recovery environments in one or more public clouds.

Data security and compliance

Store data in specific cloud locations to meet sovereignty, security, and compliance requirements. Improve data visibility and protect against ransomware.

Data tiering

Reduce real estate space, infrastructure management, and cost by automating movement of infrequently accessed “cold” data from your premises to cloud storage.

Hybrid workloads

Integrate on-premises and public cloud storage to support your enterprise apps. Reduce system administration costs, protect data, and simplify operations with unified management across your hybrid cloud.

DevOps

Speed application development with a hybrid multicloud environment so that you can release new applications faster and support continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD). No retooling required.

Cloud bursting

Temporarily move data (or clones of data) from on-premises environments to the cloud, or between clouds, for dynamic workload flexibility and data processing.

Blue Background with Clouds

Great partners make great hybrid clouds

NetApp and VMware have spent the past 20 years defining the virtualized data center, delivering the most trusted storage and virtualized infrastructure solutions around. When you combine NetApp® storage with VMware, you get the integrations and consistency you need to cost-effectively move your storage-heavy, data-intensive workloads to your choice of cloud.

Unlock the best of cloud

We were asked by the world's biggest hyperscalers—AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud—to build data management and storage solutions in their clouds because of our success, reliability, and uptime.
