Hybrid cloud is emerging as the dominant model; most enterprises will use a mixture of private storage and cloud service providers, including the largest hyperscale clouds. The problem is that the world of hybrid clouds today consists of nonoperational, isolated, incompatible data silos. It is extremely difficult to move large amounts of data between clouds or share data across private and public clouds.
With NetApp and Intel, technology is no longer a barrier that hinders you from moving data to the right location to maximize business return. NetApp's vision of the future of data management is Data Fabric, which gives you the freedom to seamlessly manage your data across the hybrid cloud. You can move data where you need it most, so you can innovate faster and make the best decisions for your organization.
Scale-out storage solutions from NetApp and Intel enable customers to manage data growth and accelerate responsiveness across private, public, and hybrid clouds. Cloud service providers, as well as enterprises, are widely adopting NetApp and Intel solutions. More than 300 cloud service providers—including some of the largest hyperscale clouds and 12 of the top 15 suppliers overall—build cloud services using NetApp storage based on Intel® processors.
Enterprise data centers are experiencing unprecedented change and massive data growth. Users are becoming more sophisticated, requiring IT to respond with greater flexibility and responsiveness, while public cloud services vie for the enterprise budget. NetApp and Intel work together to help enterprise IT organizations overcome current challenges by transitioning to next-generation storage architectures—such as hybrid clouds that provide the benefits of public cloud services while addressing enterprise security concerns.
With 20 years' comprehensive collaboration building storage systems based on Intel® processors—including NetApp® FAS Storage Systems, NetApp® All Flash FAS, NetApp® E-Series Storage Systems with SANtricity® OS, and NetApp® EF-Series All-Flash Arrays—the companies share a vision for harnessing new and existing technologies to help businesses stay in the driver's seat when managing IT in a fast-changing landscape.
