NetApp provides several XaaS options, including IaaS, IT as a service (ITaaS), SaaS, and PaaS.
IaaS. When you differentiate your hosted and managed infrastructure services, you can increase service and platform revenue, improve customer satisfaction, and turn IaaS into a profit center. You can also take advantage of new opportunities to differentiate and expand services and platform revenue, including delivering more performance and predictability from your IaaS services. Plus, NetApp® technology can enable you to offer a competitive advantage to your customers and reduce time to market for deploying IaaS solutions.
ITaaS. When your data center is in a private cloud, it takes advantage of cloud features to deliver ITaaS to internal business users. A private cloud offers characteristics similar to the public cloud but is designed for use by a single organization. These characteristics include:
- Catalog-based, on-demand service delivery
- Automated scalability and service elasticity
- Multitenancy with shared resource pools
- Metering with utility-style operating expense models
- Software-defined, centrally managed infrastructure
- Self-service lifecycle management of services
StaaS. NetApp facilitates private storage as a service in a pay-as-you-go model by partnering with various vendors, including Arrow Electronics, HPE ASE, BriteSky, DARZ, DataLink, Faction, Forsythe, Node4, Proact, Solvinity, Synoptek, and 1901 Group. NetApp also seamlessly integrates with all major cloud service providers including AWS, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud, and Microsoft Azure.
PaaS. NetApp PaaS solutions help simplify a customer’s application development cycle. Our storage technologies support PaaS platforms to:
- Reduce application development complexity.
- Provide high-availability infrastructure.
- Support native multitenancy.
- Deliver webscale storage.
PaaS services built on NetApp technology enable your enterprise to adopt hybrid hosting services—and accelerate your application-deployment time.
