Data Fabric Provides Control, Choice and Responsiveness


Securely retain control and governance of your data, regardless of its location (on premises, near the cloud, or in the cloud):

DARZ uses NetApp® Private Storage to connect its highly secure data center to multiple public cloud services, including those from Amazon, IBM, and Microsoft, to meet stringent data protection regulations for its European customers.

BlackLine partnered with NetApp and Verizon Enterprise Solutions to solve the challenges of architecting a hybrid cloud environment.

“You can outsource a lot, except for control of your data.”3

Alain Avakian, Chief Technology Officer at BlackLine


Build the hybrid cloud that you need, not one that is dictated by a single vendor’s offerings, and avoid creating data and application silos:

Virdata, a subsidiary of Technicolor, wanted the flexibility to host its Internet of Things service on any cloud provider that it chose, with seamless data management and full control of data across multiple clouds.4

“We didn’t want to be limited by a certain hardware architecture or cloud provider, so we created a platform that is completely cloud agnostic.”5

Jeremy DeClercq, Product Management Lead at Virdata

Suncorp, an Australian financial services company, partnered with NetApp for its hybrid cloud. The bank uses NetApp Private Storage for Cloud (NPS) and plans to move 2,000 applications to Amazon Web Services.


Seamlessly move data to optimize service levels, reduce costs, and meet changing business demands quickly:

Germany’s national weather service accelerated its forecasting application by 15 times and now sends critical weather information to first responders more quickly.

“Our forecasters rave about the improved speed and new functionality.”6

Hans-Joachim Koppert, Head of Weather Forecasting Services at DWD

CoreLogic RP Data, the largest provider of real estate property information in Australia and New Zealand, reduced database transfer and report processing times by over 70%.
