The best Formula One™ teams are built on partnerships that drive innovation and win races. We are thrilled to be helping Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One Team unlock the best of cloud, gain speed on and off the track, and make history.
Performance is everything at AMCF1. For IT, this means getting technology changes onto the car as quickly as possible so the team can translate them to performance on the track. Like a world-class pit crew, the NetApp® ONTAP® ecosystem provides endless performance benefits to help achieve maximum operational efficiency everywhere—from edge to core to cloud.
From factory to wind tunnel to trackside, everything across the team’s infrastructure must flow effortlessly and be available the instant it’s needed. No matter what aspect of performance the data is driving, AMCF1 knows speed is only valuable if it gets them across the finish line. NetApp® Cloud Volumes ONTAP® ensures enterprise reliability and continuous operations in case of failures in your cloud environment.
At AMCF1, the best performance and reliability one day becomes the starting point for the next. To win, its IT team constantly pushes for better agility, more speed, and greater reliability. NetApp® Cloud Insights makes it simple to monitor, troubleshoot, and optimize all your resources and applications on premises and in the cloud. In racing and in business, knowledge is the slipstream of innovation.
How critical is data’s role in the sport of Formula One? We recently sat down with AMCF1’s CIO, Bill Peters, who gave us a behind-the-curtain look at how the team captures and uses massive amounts of data to gain milliseconds of performance when it matters most—race weekend. He also explained why they chose NetApp to help overcome the team's current data challenges and bring home its first World Championship.
Automakers like Aston Martin, along with their suppliers, trust NetApp to help build a data fabric that moves their digital transformation into the fast lane. Our solutions deliver the data mobility and manufacturing agility needed to unlock the potential of automotive AI, raise the I.Q. of smart factories, and ensure that data access never gets in the way of innovation.
We were asked by the top three hyperscalers—Amazon, Microsoft, and Google—to build data management and storage solutions in their clouds because of our success, reliability, and uptime.
“The work we are doing together to support our customers’ need for hybrid cloud infrastructure has been breakthrough work.”
– Satya Nadella, CEO Microsoft
“We are very happy to be working with NetApp to deliver joint solutions where we meet the customer on their cloud journey, where they are.”
– Thomas Kurian, CEO Google Cloud
“It’s great to have our engineers—and the synergies of our two companies—going all the time.”
– Bill Vass, VP of Engineering AWS
We need both on-prem and cloud to give us the flexibility with capacity and compute capability where we need it. NetApp was the obvious choice for helping us build a race fabric to be competitive.
