CHALLENGE

Getting Everything Just Right Can Be Hard

One of the most important needs of enterprises today is the ability to provide secure file-level access and file sharing services to users without disruption, at scale, and to different clients and protocols while ensuring constant data protection and cost efficiency. But cloud file sharing is about more than just affordable, scalable storage, and meeting the many requirements of running file shares in the cloud can be challenging.

SOLUTION

But It Just Got Easier

By adding a rich set of features to the already elastic and scalable cloud infrastructure, Cloud Volumes ONTAP (CVO) enhances the use of cloud storage resources, delivering consistent, uninterrupted multi-protocol file sharing across the entire organization. CVO also offers built-in enterprise data management services, cloud data protection, security, and cost efficiency.

Another feature which gets a lot of attention in our environment is the File Services Solutions in the cloud, because it's a completely, fully-managed service. We don't have to take care of any updates, upgrades, or configurations. We're just using it, deploying volumes and using them. We see that as the future of storage services: completely managed.
