Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery

Business continuity is more than just a plan to recover from disaster; it’s a survival strategy for enterprises. Managing IT operations in a world where vulnerabilities, disasters, and threats are increasing makes remote access and availability of data and applications of paramount importance for sustaining an always-on business. Companies are reinventing business continuity with resilience to weather these disruptive times.

NetApp is here, ready to help you enable business continuity and progress during these disruptive times. We can help you support remote-access workers, help ensure the availability of data and applications, and help you prepare for—and avoid—the next wave of potential disruptions.

Data Backup and Recovery

As the lifeblood of your organization, you should never gamble with your data. Primary data failures can happen for a slew of different reasons, including hardware or software failure, data corruption, a malicious attack (virus or malware), or accidental deletion of data (Greg in accounting).

As the global leader in cloud data services, storage systems, and software, our reputation depends on delivering the most advanced backup and recovery solutions for end-to-end protection across your entire data fabric. You won’t find better odds anywhere.

Data Compliance

You have no choice when it comes to keeping your sensitive data organized and managed to meet stringent government regulations. We get it. Which is why our comprehensive set of standards-based, simple-to-use solutions make it easy to help prevent the unauthorized access, disclosure, and modification of data stored across your enterprise. From our industry-leading data-at-rest encryption, robust authorization, access control, and logging capabilities, to AI-driven privacy compliance controls for your data stored in the cloud, NetApp helps make sure you remain as compliant as ever (plus a little extra for good measure).

Data Privacy

NetApp encryption solutions keep private data private and help you meet regulatory compliance security mandates. External regulations and internal best practices point to data encryption as a key solution to data privacy. NetApp security solutions offer encryption without traditional compromises around performance, OS-dependence, and ease of use.

NetApp security solutions enable corporations to meet compliance security mandates contained in regulations such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), HIPAA, CASB1386, GLBA, DoD 5015.2, and others.

ONTAP Data Security

As you surely know, every day the cyberthreat landscape becomes more sophisticated and dangerous, putting your company’s data at ever-greater risk. Thankfully, we have just the answer.

The latest release of ONTAP data management software contains over 30 invaluable security features. It helps you enhance data confidentiality, integrity, and availability, while strengthening your company’s overall security posture. In addition, protect your data from ransomware attacks and avoid paying ransoms, meet compliance requirements with ease, and create a Zero Trust perimeter around your organization’s data—no matter where it lives.

Data Management

 Every data symphony needs a great conductor. NetApp® data management solutions empower you to manage your data—on your premises and across private and public clouds—with unprecedented flexibility.

Our data management solutions help you drive simplicity and efficiency by using software management tools designed to work together, leverage insights to make better-informed decisions, and boost performance, resilience, and protection. Bravo!

Configuration Management

By integrating with configuration and resource management tools, including Ansible and Terraform, NetApp frees your operations team from time-consuming coding and quality assurance (finally, right?).

Automatic provisioning of test environments gives developers the speed they need to innovate faster than ever before, while operations maintains the visibility to understand resource consumption and anticipate future needs. And just like that, errors are prevented earlier in the development process.

Containers

At NetApp, we believe in container technology and are working on proven tools and innovations that deliver and manage persistent storage for any application, in any location. One key example of this work is the development of Trident. Trident makes it easier than ever for containerized applications to consume persistent storage on demand.

The growing ecosystem for application containers can improve usability and augment deployments. Improve DevOps workflows using Trident with popular container platforms like Kubernetes, OpenShift, Docker EE, and Rancher.
