Why Keystone?

Keystone helps you extend and enhance your private and hybrid cloud infrastructure while we handle financial risk and storage tasks. We don’t break your budget, and you don’t break a sweat.

Pick a cloud, any cloud

NetApp® ONTAP® is the only enterprise-grade data management software natively embedded in AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud. Pure is a little new to multicloud storage as a service, with no first-party native cloud storage services and only limited coverage for its block-only hybrid cloud storage.

Control cost with automated data tiering

Keystone lets you automatically tier cold data to lower-cost storage on premises or in any public cloud, helping you save over 50% on storage costs. Pure doesn’t support automated tiering in their controls. What could be simpler than automation?

NetApp Keystone: Do data on your terms

It’s a hybrid world. It’s a multicloud world. True flexibility today requires cloud interoperability. Always ask questions when an IT vendor like Pure tries to sign you up for a hybrid cloud option that doesn’t work with all three major clouds. There’s one simple choice for storage as a service, and it’s NetApp Keystone.
