NetApp launched a series of services and software tools designed to move data around hybrid cloud deployments more easily.

Storage vendors have been tapping into the hybrid cloud and using software defined approaches to mix and match public and private resources.

NetApp outlined the following additions:

  • Cloud Sync Service, a software as a service tool that synchronizes and manages data between on-premises storage and Amazon Web Services' S3. CloudSync is sold via that AWS marketplace.
  • NetApp Private Storage for Cloud as a Service. NetApp's private storage (NPS) is being offered through more partners such as Arrow, Faction and ThinkOn to better connect via Equinix.
  • Cloud Control for Microsoft Office 365, a service to control and protect data in Microsoft Office 365, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business and Exchange Online. Support for data retention in AWS S3, Azure and on-prem is also available.
  • Cloud Backup, a cloud backup service for NetApp's ONTAP platform.

In addition, NetApp outlined news versions of its AltaVault, StorageGRID, Webscale and SnapCenter technologies that extract data. The updates all included new interfaces as well as support for cloud simulations and movement of data.
