NetApp® and Equinix® have been hybrid cloud innovators for over a decade—ever since they joined forces to launch NetApp Private Storage (NPS), one of the first enterprise hybrid cloud solutions for private storage. Since then, the partnership has launched a series of innovative, high-performance, and cost-effective data management solutions.
The benefits of cloud adjacency
When you operate a hybrid multicloud environment, the big question is where to store your data—on-premises or in the cloud. Our joint solutions house data on private, dedicated NetApp storage adjacent to, but apart from, public clouds. This “next to the cloud” approach gives our customers complete control over their data, plus proximity to services from the public clouds. Add dedicated high-speed connections, and you get the lowest latency (< 1 millisecond roundtrip lag), best performance, and highest level of security possible to store and manage your data.
