NetApp Private Storage as a Service

OpEx-based consumption models available from multiple service-delivery partners


Scale cloud capacity, performance and cost better than in-cloud alternatives, with data control

NetApp Private Storage as a Service (NPS as a Service) gives you the freedom to connect to multiple industry-leading clouds while maintaining control of your data on private NetApp storage systems—with no capital expenditure. With your compute hosted in a public cloud, your compute will have the performance you demand while your data remains secure and protected in a colocation facility.

Available from multiple delivery partners, NPS as a Service leverages the patent pending cloud architecture that places NetApp storage next to the hyperscaler cloud compute, physically and logically separating data and compute via high-speed interconnections to multiple hyperscaler clouds. The technology interfaces with standard Internet-based virtual routing and network capabilities to bridge clouds simply and securely. The technology enables enterprises to extend private, secure tenancy from NetApp storage to multiple hyperscaler compute providers, in a unique architecture that simplifies routing – reducing time to deploy and configuration error potential.

Choose from AWS, SoftLayer, and or Microsoft Azure public cloud services. Dedicated high-speed connections to the cloud through Amazon Direct Connect, Microsoft ExpressRoute, and SoftLayer Direct Link make it easy to switch cloud services in seconds without migrating data.

There is no need to procure, deploy, or maintain infrastructure from multiple vendors; setting up service is easy. You can start small and scale up as your business grows, adjusting your compute and storage resources on the fly in line with your business needs. Single-source billing and support simplify purchasing, implementation, and management.
