NetApp_Nov11_Blog_IllustrationNetApp, a storage industry leader and FORTUNE 500 company, recently unveiled a portfolio of new software and services meant to simplify data management across multiple cloud platforms.

According to an Oct. 28 press release issued by NetApp, this vision for a data-centric cloud architecture is designed to allow clients to utilize a hybrid cloud while maintaining control of their data and ensuring choice across a blend of private and public cloud resources.

The offerings include Cloud ONTAP, a new version of NetApp’s Clustered Data ONTAP operating system, as well as OnCommand Cloud Manager and NetApp Private Storage for Cloud.

As hybrid cloud continues to gain traction, NetApp believes that the data management elements in different parts of a hybrid cloud must be connected and work together to form a coherent, integrated, and interoperable system. This “data fabric” enables data to be consistently managed and transported seamlessly from one part of the cloud to another. It also enables enterprises to apply consistent policies and services to the data in the hybrid cloud regardless of the application, technology or cloud infrastructure provider.
