NetApp Private Storage for Azure

Harness the power and control of a hybrid cloud solution from NetApp and Microsoft Azure.

When it comes to cloud, one thing is clear: Enterprises want flexibility and control. Most cloud solutions require trade-offs, but the NetApp® Private Storage for Microsoft® Azure solution gives you both.

Leverage Azure cloud compute with proven enterprise storage. Combine the elasticity and savings of Microsoft Azure with the performance and availability of dedicated enterprise storage.

Match compute resources to utilization. Use Azure compute for peak, unforecasted, or seasonal enterprise workloads and avoid large, unnecessary capex investments.

Put your data next to Azure for performance and control. Placing your NetApp storage in an Equinix Tier 1 datacenter next to Azure gives you physical and environmental security, along with performance. Azure ExpressRoute connectivity between NetApp storage and Azure improves throughput by 36% compared to VPN over the Internet. Your compute feels local, while your data remains protected. Data sovereignty is a non-issue because you know where your data is located at all times.
