NetAp ® (NASDAQ: NTAP), a global cloud-led, data-centric software company, today announced continuous innovations and solutions for enterprises ‘s hybrid multi-cloud environment provides simpler, more secure, and more flexible services.

These infrastructure mixes have become more fragmented, inconsistent and fragmented over time as enterprises need to purchase public cloud services to augment their existing on-premises data centers. These multi-cloud silos are fundamentally more difficult to manage because they have to deal with different environments.
Today, NetApp is delivering a unified and consistent hybrid multi-cloud experience, allowing customers to run and manage a single platform spanning on-premises to the world’s top-scale public clouds.
Ronen Schwartz, senior vice president of NetApp Cloud Volumes Service, said: “Today’s enterprise organizations have begun to explore the promise of hybrid multi-cloud environments, and they do not want to be challenged in terms of complexity, security and cost-effectiveness. Simplified by NetApp management and consumption experience, organizations can enjoy greater security, manageability, operational speed and cost savings, ultimately enabling them to deliver better functionality by delivering functionality faster, keeping data available and secure anywhere to meet the growing needs of businesses.”
Simple, secure, and flexible enhancements to NetApp’s hybrid cloud portfolio include:
