Ransomware is any software that allows a third party to access and encrypt another’s files, delete the originals, then threaten to delete the only remaining (encrypted) copy of the files if the ransom is not paid. In the movies, the user deploying the ransomware is typically portrayed as a hardened criminal.
Capacity licensing is a pricing model that allows customers to purchase data storage based on how much capacity is provisioned on their storage infrastructure. This model delivers the cost and flexibility benefits of software-only storage without the supply chain, system integration, and support complexity.
NetApp's Cloud Analytics solutions lowers the cost of your data analytics while improving analytics speed and boosting your cloud storage performance with up to 30 times faster I/O than competing file services. Get started today!
A NAS (network-attached storage) system is a file-dedicated storage device attached to a network that allows data to be accessible from multiple authorized users and devices.
Platform as a service (PaaS) is a cloud computing model where third-party providers distribute hardware and software tools. Customarily the tools are designed for application development to the user over internet access.
Learn what quality of service (QoS) is, how it works, and why it's important. Discover why QoS is essential for multitenant systems running varying workloads.
Continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) are two approaches to software development that are designed to improve code quality and enable rapid delivery and deployment of code.
Development testing (DevTest) is an approach in software development that aims to bring the development and testing phases closer together. Learn the benefits and why DevTest is important.
Data center automation is the process when routine processes of a data center such as scheduling, monitoring, maintenance, application delivery, etc are executed without human administration. Data center automation is immensely valuable because it frees up human computational time.
Site reliability engineering (SRE) is a discipline to create ultra-scalable and reliable software systems by applying software engineering practices to infrastructure and operations problems.
Data migration is the process of moving data from one location to another, one format to another, or one application to another. The business driver is usually a migration or consolidation in which legacy systems are replaced or augmented by new applications.
NetApp’s Cloud Volume Service is a fully-managed cloud storage solution available in AWS and Google Cloud Platform. Azure NetApp Files is platform built by Azure and NetApp.
Best-in-class product and support resources mean satisfied customers.
We‘ve been able to improve the performance of the applications and... provide better management of the overall infrastructure. I would say that makes management very relieved.

Private cloud is a type of cloud computing that's similar to public cloud including the ability to scale and self-service. While public clouds service many business', private clouds focus on the needs and business requirements for each organization.
Multicloud is multiple cloud computing and storage services in a single architecture. Including multiple public cloud providers, on-prem environments (NetApp® HCI), private cloud infrastructure with a public cloud provider (hybrid cloud), or a combination of both.
Microservices are an architectural approach to creating cloud applications. Each application is built as a set of services, and each service runs in its own processes and communicates through APIs.
Lift and shift is an approach used for migrating your apps to the cloud. It means moving an application and its associated data to a cloud platform—without redesigning the app.
Entry-level storage is simple, affordable, high-performance, and scalable data storage for enterprises to start small and grow with seamless cloud connectivity as business requirements increase.
NetApp SANtricity Dynamic Disk Pools (DDP) technology represents a significant advancement in storage system data protection and data management. Learn how to Utilize Dynamic Disk Pool Technology.
Persistent memory (PMEM) is a solid-state high-performance byte-addressable memory device that resides on the memory bus. Being on the memory bus allows PMEM to have DRAM-like access to data which means that it's nearly the same speed and latency of DRAM and the nonvolatility of NAND flash.
An Oracle Database (RDBMS) is a collection of data organized by type with relationships being maintained between the different types. Learn more here.
FlexCache is a remote caching capability that simplifies file distribution, reduces WAN latency and WAN bandwidth costs enhancing collaboration and accelerating performance of product development across multiple sites.
Ansible is a configuration management platform that automates storage, servers, and networking. When you use Ansible to configure these components, difficult manual tasks become repeatable and less vulnerable to error.
Cloud monitoring is a method of reviewing, observing, and managing the operational workflow in a cloud-based IT infrastructure. Manual or automated management techniques confirm the availability and performance of websites, servers, applications, and other cloud infrastructure.
A general category of services related to cloud computing and remote access. It recognizes the vast number of products, tools, and technologies that are now delivered to users as a service over the internet.
