Deploy File Sharing Services on Google Cloud

Deploy file services on GCP with Cloud Volumes Service, a native cloud storage service, or NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP, a self-managed storage service.

  • Cloud Volumes ONTAP

    Cloud Volumes ONTAP is a self-managed storage service that deploys on native cloud resources. It provides fast and cost-effective storage that is highly available with integrated features such as space-saving snapshots, easy-backup, data-privacy scanning, ransomware protection, and remote data caching.


    Create your intelligent storage layer to make your cloud applications run faster and more efficiently with:

    • Shared File and Block storage services on top of native GCP Persistent Disks and Cloud Storage and supporting all versions of NFS, SMB and iSCSI.
    • High availability (RPO=0) architecture that prevents downtime and efficient data replication across regions for disaster recovery.
    • Higher IOPS than Persistent Disks at 70% lower storage cost due to storage efficiencies and cold-data tiering to Cloud Storage.
    • Advanced management and automation using Cloud Manager with consistent features and APIs across clouds.
    • Instant, non-disruptive cloning of production data for accelerated application development, testing and QA.
  • Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud

    Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud is a fully managed storage service for Google Cloud users designed for performance, simplicity, and enterprise data management. Built for the cloud architect and application owner, it delivers on-premises flash performance and advanced storage functionality with the simplicity of native cloud services.


    Spin up a fully managed storage volume in minutes with zero-touch management and advanced features:

    • Free yourself from the maintenance and management of your cloud storage infrastructure.
    • Consume storage as you need it via APIs or an intuitive GUI.
    • Connect your Linux and Windows applications with NFS (v3, v4.1) and SMB file access.
    • Achieve millisecond latency with high IOPs and throughput.
    • Speed application development or protect your data with instant copies for development, test and QA.
    • Guaranteed availability SLA.
