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.


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.
