As cloud adoption, and specifically hybrid and multicloud, pick up, users need an optimized and simplified path for data management along with getting a good cost. NetApp is rolling out a software-driven portfolio to address the above. The company is doing this primarily through three ways. A new serverless and storageless solution for cloud native apps, elastic scale and savings for the virtual workplace, and automated data protection, management, and portability in hybrid environments.

The serverless and storageless solution for containers is a combination of Sport Storage by NetApp and Spot Ocean by NetApp. These combined solution enables customers to cost-effectively build, deploy, and run microservice-based applications on Kubernetes without having to administer storage and data services.

With virtual workspaces, the company has rolled out its new, cloud-based NetApp Virtual Desktop Management Service (VDMS) as well as a new validated hybrid cloud virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) design. The remote workforce has been growing for some time, with the Covid-19 pandemic pushing it into overdrive. While VDI isn’t anything new, NetApp’s version is aimed at helping their customers scale to meeting the increasing demand and optimizing the resources without introducing more complexity or a higher cost. The new solution allows for the automation of workspace deployment, unifies application management, and integrates with NetApp Cloud solutions.

Finally, the company is releasing a new autonomous cloud volume platform, providing a single experience to manage NetApp hybrid, multi cloud storage and data services. This new platform will come through NetApp Cloud Manger that will give users full visibility whether on-prem or in the major clouds like Azure, AWS, and GCP. Through Cloud Manager, customers can use advanced data services such as data sync, data backup, data tiering, file caching and compliance.
