Flexibility coupled with simplicity

One of the storage challenges companies transitioning to cloud face is the trade-off between flexibility and simplicity. The feature richness of on-premises storage allows for flexible workload and architecture options, but typically comes with a certain degree of operational overhead. Cloud storage services on the other hand, are very easy to use, but generally provide a narrow set of capabilities fitting only specific types of workloads and architectures. Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP eliminates this trade-off by combining the rich data management and protection capabilities of ONTAP with the simplicity and agility of a native AWS service.
