NetApp® Private Storage (NPS) for Cloud is a family of enterprise storage solutions that lets you use multiple industry-leading clouds and maintain complete control over your data on dedicated storage systems from NetApp. The NPS for Cloud family includes:
Each NPS for Cloud solution consists of a NetApp FAS or FlexArray™ storage system, collocated in an Equinix data center, and directly connected with a service provider’s cloud compute using a dedicated, high-bandwidth, low-latency network connection. With such an approach, the cloud compute is in essence local, while data remains protected, meeting privacy, regulatory, and sovereignty requirements. NPS for Cloud is based on the NetApp clustered Data ONTAP® storage operating system, offering a common storage management framework, or data fabric, with your on-premises data center.
By using high-performance, dedicated enterprise-class storage, you can easily scale your cloud environment to hundreds of thousands of IOPS, opening the cloud to many traditional applications that would otherwise not be suitable for the cloud such as data analytics and scientific computing workloads.
In order to simplify the deployment and configuration of your NPS for Cloud environment, NetApp OnCommand® Cloud Manager offers a simple management solution. Cloud Manager lets you set up your network environment and configure and manage your data, all from a single tool. This software is available as a free download from AWS Marketplace or netapp.com.
