NetApp Uses Amazon Web Services Direct Connect to Build NetApp Private Storage

Solution Provides Performance, Agility, and Control of NetApp Private Storage with all the Benefits of the AWS Cloud

LAS VEGAS — Today at re: Invent, NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) unveiled NetApp Private Storage for AWS – an enterprise storage solution that utilizes AWS Direct Connect to provide its customers the ability to establish a dedicated network connection from their existing infrastructure to Amazon Web Services (AWS).

With this offering, organizations can now replicate data from on-premise NetApp® storage environments to NetApp Private Storage, and through AWS Direct Connect they can leverage on-demand cloud services. NetApp Private Storage powered by AWS allows enterprises to build an agile cloud infrastructure that balances internal datacenter resources along with AWS cloud resources to best meet their business needs.

NetApp Private Storage for Amazon Web Services is featured at the AWS re: Invent conference, November 27 – 29, in NetApp booth #510.

Key Highlights

  • Access big data analytics: Leverage NetApp Private Storage along with Amazon Elastic MapReduce (EMR) to accomplish big data analysis at a fraction of the cost of running on premise.
  • Gain cost-effective data protection: Deploy cost-effective disaster recovery by leveraging Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) in failover scenarios. Leverage tiered disk backup and recovery using Amazon Glacier as a more reliable alternate to a tape archive.
  • Support for high performance NFS and CIFS: Easily move traditional enterprise applications to the cloud.
  • Support for secure synchronous or asynchronous data replication: Seamlessly move data between AWS regions, increasing application redundancy.

“We are excited to be working with NetApp to make it easier for our joint enterprise customers to leverage the performance, security, availability and on-demand pay as you go benefits of AWS alongside their existing NetApp Private Storage Solutions,” said Terry Wise, Head of World Wide Partner Ecosystems for AWS. “The combined offerings will give customers flexibility and choice as they work to stream line their IT environments and leverage the benefits of cloud computing.”

“Organizations use the on-demand scalability and reliability of Amazon Web Services as a critical extension to their on-premise IT infrastructure,” said Brendon Howe, vice president, Product and Solutions Marketing, NetApp. “NetApp Private Storage provides our customers the ability to leverage infrastructure that spans cloud and internal IT resources. We are committed to helping our customers achieve greater agility for their IT infrastructure.”

NetApp Private Storage is immediately available through a network of VARS in North America and will be available in Europe and Asia in the near future. For more information visit the NetApp Solution Connection.
