Migrate and run complex, performance-intensive and latency-sensitive applications with no code-change.
Change storage and capacity on the fly as your data access needs grow or shrink over time.
Increase application resiliency by taking near-instant snapshot copies of your data that don’t impact performance, time or capacity.
Provide network-efficient replicas of your volumes across regions to help ensure business applications can continue in the event of a regional outage.
Separation of the control plane and data plane give you increased control and security. This can increase your organization’s overall regulatory compliance without compromising user experience.
With four service tiers that can be changed on demand, you can find the right performance fit for your workload and adjust as the nature of your application changes. Performance for each cloud volume scales with the amount of allocated capacity, so performance isn’t limited as your dataset size grows. You can also increase or decrease the allocated capacity on the fly without having to worry about adding or deleting underlying nodes.
Cloud Volumes Service is regional, allowing application instances in any of the Google Cloud zones in each region to access the same NFS volume without the need to create and manage a zonal Linux cluster. This design helps to avoid unnecessary zonal egress charges and delivers service unaffected by zonal outages.
NetApp® Snapshot™ technology lets you automate or manually create point-in-time representations of your data for restoring databases or shared file systems without downtime. Snapshots are simple and nondisruptive, creating a read-only view that enables applications to access older file versions and directory hierarchies without additional workflows.
At-rest AES 256-bit encryption protects data without compromising application performance. Additionally, NetApp’s separation of the control plane and data plane gives you increased control and security. This single-source solution can increase your organization’s overall regulatory compliance without compromising user experience.
With Cloud Volumes Service, you get support for NFSv4.1 protocol for applications needing secure, stateful session connectivity to file volumes and support for SMBv3 multichannel for improved throughput on Windows workloads.
