Delivering Advanced Data Management for Your Application Requirements
The NetApp ONTAP Cloud storage data management service allows you to build an enterprise storage service on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2) with Elastic Block Storage (EBS) with the flexibility to pay for only what you need, when you need it. Whether you are looking to move traditional database applications or legacy NAS applications to the cloud, ONTAP Cloud provides data management that helps solve your pain points:
- Grow active dataset while minimizing your overall storage resource footprint with ONTAP storage efficiency features
- Get advanced data protection with SnapMirror technology from data center to cloud and region-to-region replication
- Secure your data with NetApp managed data at rest encryption where you own the keys
Your data management experience on ONTAP Cloud is simplified through NetApp OnCommand® Cloud Manager tools. Cloud Manager gives you a single interface to manage all of your ONTAP Cloud data storage environments. Whether it is to deploy your storage environment in minutes or to monitor your resource spend, Cloud Manager provides the management to make your cloud data experience pleasant.
ONTAP Cloud , based on the NetApp ONTAP storage operating system, allows you to grow with your application needs. As your need for application performance outpaces what cloud storage can provide, you can simply transition to NetApp Private Storage (NPS) for Cloud. With NPS, you have the ability to go from a midrange enterprise storage system to ultra–high speed All Flash FAS storage systems, all while still having the flexibility of AWS cloud compute. NPS for Cloud also opens the door to moving larger scale applications to the cloud such as analytics and scientific computing workloads that require the highest IOPS performance, capacity, and scale.
Ensure Business Continuity in your IT Environment whether in a Data Center or in the Cloud
The usage-based model of cloud computing is well suited for DR, and it offers a viable alternative to on-premises solutions. Moving DR operations to the cloud reduces the required data center space and storage infrastructure, resulting in cost savings and flexibility.
Disaster recovery on the cloud with ONTAP Cloud
With ONTAP Cloud, you can easily deploy a DR environment in the cloud and target from your on-premises NetApp Data ONTAP environments.
When building your disaster recovery site in AWS, ONTAP Cloud brings you a common data platform with that of your data center enterprise environment.
- Drag & Drop
Simple click-and-drag replication of your on-premises data to Cloud ONTAP and between cloud regions
- Fast Deployment
A simple deployment wizard to get new cloud DR targets up and running in minutes
- Storage Control
The ability to provision, configure, and control cloud storage for additional use after it’s in the cloud
Efficiently replicate data to and from the cloud or between regions with NetApp SnapMirror® technology
- Reduced Cost
Get flexibility and cost savings by paying for your DR applications only in the event of site or system failure
- Regulatory Compliance
Spin up your DR site to test and validate the site to meet regulatory requirements
IT can retain in the cloud the same control and security that are required on the premises
- Broad Management
A view of Cloud ONTAP resource costs that also integrates with OnCommand Insight for a complete hybrid cloud view of resources
Automate Your Development and Test Environment with Advanced Data Management Capabilities, Increased Performance and Elasticity.
When building out a development or test environment, flexibility of resource utilization is at the core of why the cloud has fast became the top choice.
With NetApp ONTAP Cloud, you can take advantage of the flexibility of AWS compute and storage resources while also gaining enterprise-class features that both minimize the resources used and enhance your ability to scale.
DevOps Efficiency on the Cloud
With FlexClone technology within ONTAP Cloud , you can create your golden image and deploy all your working environments off clones without growing the footprint of your storage. Along with the storage resource efficiency, each of these clones can be created instantaneously, allowing you to rapidly build out hundreds of environments in minutes, whereas in traditional solutions it could take weeks.
SQL Database Applications on the Cloud
Reduce the cost and complexity deploying your SQL based applications in the cloud with ONTAP Cloud for AWS.
- Cost Efficiencies
Minimize your cloud storage footprint with compression, data deduplication and thin provisioning.
Not hindered by storage capacity, on premise restrictions and load management, your databases on the cloud can perform at increased speed levels.
Your database cloud configuration can be automated using Simple REST API for storage operations or a CloudFormation template.
- Data Protection
Data snapshots allow simple recovery from data corruption. Moreover, data snapshots are storage efficient, fast and assure data integrity.
- Data Management
Use advanced data management capabilities with enterprise-class clustered Data ONTAP features such as data deduplication, thin provisioning, FlexClone copies, SnapMirror, and SnapManager
- Enterprise DR Readiness
Use SnapMirror replication from an on-premises data center or between AWS regions because storage replication does not affect database performance.
Get application consistent data backups with SnapManager for SQL and seamless migration to and from your existing infrastructure.
- QA Support
Attain a well suited database to support QA as FlexClone copies allow for storage-efficient and quick data copies, and APIs allow for streamlining testing automation.
