NetApp Is Transforming Hybrid and Multi-clouds into ‘the Any Cloud’

Modern businesses are massively increasing their rates of public cloud adoption, but some of them are encountering issues. Their higher-tier applications often require advanced storage functionality, and differences in on-versus off-premises technologies add complexity and hinder deployment flexibility. But moving those tier-1 workloads to the cloud is still necessary for businesses that want to innovate, reduce TCO, increase ROI, and digitally transform. That’s why NetApp has been partnering with AWS to augment cloud storage capabilities to create a consistent, simple, enterprise-caliber hybrid cloud storage environment that meets the needs of modern, mission-critical workloads.


Build cloud-native applications with Red Hat OpenShift and AWS

Highly available, cloud-based applications are at the core of modern businesses, but they must be configured properly to be effective. Cloud environments must be connected and optimized to increase scalability and elasticity. Consistent platforms and processes are needed to manage applications across on-premise and cloud environments. Red Hat® OpenShift® and Amazon Web Services (AWS) form an innovative solution for quickly creating, deploying, and managing modern, cloud-based applications.
