Cloud computing is increasingly being adopted as a way for IT organizations to decrease costs, improve efficiency, and enhance business agility. NetApp has been helping companies succeed in cloud deployment to achieve tangible results since long before the term cloud entered the popular lexicon. NetApp has the people, technologies, and partnerships in place to help organizations evolve existing IT infrastructure into an efficient cloud-based service delivery model. The NetApp® Unified Storage Architecture and clustered Data ONTAP® operating system integrate all storage capabilities into a single, easy-to-use platform. By choosing NetApp when making the transition to a private cloud or a hybrid cloud, organizations will be able to meet their storage business needs now and in the future.
A critical step in moving from a shared virtualized environment toward a private cloud is the transition from infrastructure optimization to service optimization. NetApp’s design approach, technologies, and ecosystem integration build upon our storage efficiencies to deliver service-level efficiencies using centralized, policy-based management and automation. With NetApp® OnCommand® Workflow Automation, an efficient service-oriented approach can be implemented that enables storage provisioning, data protection, and operational processes to be integrated and automated. As a result, enterprises can meet workload service-level requirements while greatly reducing management costs and improving business agility.
Self-service is an advanced element of private cloud environments that improves management efficiency and business agility, as well as lowering operating expenses. A self-service environment streamlines the interaction between users and the IT department. It empowers internal consumers of IT services to request and receive appropriately configured resources on demand with minimal IT intervention. NetApp® OnCommand® Workflow Automation, the NetApp Management SDK with open APIs, and key ecosystem partnerships enable enterprises to easily integrate their orchestration solutions and custom management tools with the NetApp storage service catalog for automated storage provisioning and protection. Customers can thereby create a self-service, web-based portal that efficiently delivers IT as a service to virtualization administrators, application administrators, and users, while enabling IT staff to focus on higher value activities.
To power your new and legacy applications and workloads, different IT environments are required based on your unique industry and application needs. Organizations need the right mix of traditional infrastructure, private cloud, and public cloud with consistent management and control software to meet the demands for agility and excellent user experience.
As IT advances, organizations are adopting infrastructures that enhance agility and improve efficiency.
Data centers are evolving to a state that is almost unrecognizable from only a few years ago. Numerous forces, such as cloud computing and powerful orchestration solutions, are combining to fundamentally change data centers, making them more powerful, sophisticated, flexible and efficient. Many organizations are adopting a hybrid infrastructure data center model that combines a variety of technologies and methodologies, including virtualization, private clouds and other internal IT resources, along with external options such as hosting, colocation, Software as a Service (SaaS) applications and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offerings.
As data volumes grow, you need more than just storage space. Let us help you orchestrate a solution that brings you the scalability and agility you need to move your organization forward.
Storage needs are changing rapidly, and legacy appliances and processes just can’t keep up. Old systems are running slowly and filling up fast. At CDW, we can help you evolve your storage with a smart solution that’s ready for what lies ahead.
IT decision-makers at most enterprises understand the benefits that the cloud has to offer: increased agility and more predictable budgeting, among others. In many organizations, in fact, “cloud first” has become the mantra when seeking out new software solutions. But often, enterprises are less clear on the specific use cases of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and how providers can help deliver IT capabilities that meet their needs and help them to achieve desired business outcomes.
The steady growth of HYBRID CLOUDS signals the continued need by organizations for greater flexibility and agility while responding to changing business needs. Learn about best practices, business and IT considerations, and customer success stories for hybrid clouds.
In today’s mobile and digital world, IT speed and agility are essential – which is why organizations are turning to converged infrastructure solutions to get the flexibility they need to transform their business.

Manufacturing and product companies are facing critical challenges. To survive in the new global economy, companies need to continuously reinvent themselves. They need to rapidly
add new products and acquire new businesses. They need to build new partnerships and channels. They can’t depend on the same set of suppliers tomorrow that they do today. And they can’t expect to do business the same way in new and emerging markets.
For these reasons, enterprises need a new kind of ERP, one that’s faster to deploy and can:
Adapt very quickly
Go into the hands of employees, customers and partners immediately, with little or no training
Provide continuous visibility into their operations
It’s no surprise that CIOs, manufacturing managers and operational executives are looking for new solutions. They have to ?nd solutions to get the three strategic capabilities they need
