NetApp expands its cloud offering with three new services for Azure, Google Cloud Platform and Salesforce. The aim is to provide a consistent IT environment in which workloads and applications can be shifted between them.

NetApp wants to create a single, consistent IT environment with the new offers. In this environment, workloads and applications must be able to use standard public clouds and on-premise customer data centers. This means that the company’s solutions will have to span several large suppliers, which is what the new solutions demonstrate.

The first service is Azure NetApp Files. This provides ONTAP storage and data management capabilities for storing, moving and deploying file-based workloads in Microsoft Azure. Microsoft itself will sell and support the service in specific regions of Azure. NetApp proposes to add more possibilities in the coming months. The service will also be available in more Azure regions, including Amsterdam and Dublin.

For the Google Cloud Platform, Cloud Volumes for GCP appears. Cloud Volumes for GCP must be able to move analytics to the Google Cloud. In addition, it can clone hundreds of database environments in minutes within automated test and developer environments. If something goes wrong, it is possible to go back to the original database. This service will now also be available in the Google Cloud region of Frankfurt, among other places.


In the field of Salesforce, NetApp SaaS Backup for Salesforce appears. This solution provides automated backups and a choice of where the backups should appear. In addition, it should be possible to go back to a specific point in time and restore different parts if necessary.

NetApp SaaS Backup for Salesforce appears next to SaaS Backup for Office 365. In both cases, the company states that it offers better data protection than the standard features of Office 365 and Salesforce. Both SaaS solutions can also be managed from a single console.
