NetApp has announced a number of new products for its public and hybrid cloud to simplify data management. That’s what the company announced at its Insight conference.

With the new products, the concept of a NetApp Data Fabric is extended. Data Fabric is an architecture that offers consistent capabilities across both on-premise data centers and multiple cloud environments. This should simplify the management of data.

The new NetApp Cloud Insights tool can, for example, be used to monitor the infrastructure and optimise costs in hybrid cloud environments. According to the company, 80 percent of the problems in the cloud infrastructure may have an impact on end users. In addition, there is a 90% reduction in time to solve the problems. The costs could be reduced by an average of 33%.

The company also focuses on specific cloud computing platforms with its Azure NetApp Files and NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP products. The first allows data to be managed and protected, and provides security for users who want to move file-based workloads to Azure. The service must be optimised for rich and critical datasets.

Cloud Volumes ONTAP is designed to bring high availability failover capabilities to both Azure and AWS.

Cloud Tiering Service

In addition, a new Cloud Tiering Service was introduced, which optimises the storage location of data. There is also HCI, a platform designed to be used with the company’s SolidFire Element. Together, the two products should provide a “seamless integration between the public and private cloud”.

The company also revealed SaaS Backup for Office 365, which can be used to back up and restore Microsoft Office 365 Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business. The backup can be stored in another cloud or on-premise.

Finally, Data Availability Services was announced. That product is designed to streamline backup and disaster recovery operations. The service works by putting data in the cloud and making it possible to reuse that data for the development of software, tests, analytics and the creation of reports.
