Existing Keystone Flex Subscription customer?
Not all storage as a service (STaaS) offerings are created equal. Many claim to provide hybrid cloud capabilities, but only the NetApp Keystone® portfolio delivers a real hybrid cloud experience in a single subscription. On premises, in the cloud, or anywhere in between, you choose how you want to build a seamless hybrid data center—while someone else (us!) handles financial risk and humdrum storage tasks. Unlimited flexibility. Real choice.
Agile, secure, and sustainable, Keystone removes the IT burdens of managing storage and eliminates lengthy, expensive procurement cycles. With a choice of operating models and flexible multiyear contracts, Keystone helps you align storage costs to business needs and accelerate time to value — so you can focus on core business operations by managing outcomes, not technology.
We’re a recognized market leader in STaaS. Our consumption-based, pay-as-you-grow solution mitigates risk with a seamless hybrid cloud experience and built-in security. With a unified management console and single monthly billing for both on-premises and cloud data storage services, you can provision and monitor—and even reallocate storage spending across your hybrid cloud environment with ease. It’s the ultimate in financial and operational flexibility.
