Public clouds have set a high bar for IT expectations for agility, scale, and services. Regardless of location and infrastructure, customers’ consumption experience with public cloud providers is driving their decisions about and spending on IT today. Along with the ability to consume services across a choice of public and private clouds, customers must consolidate enterprise workloads without performance impact, deploying from a private cloud platform with service catalogs. Public clouds automate management and lifecycle, and they simplify how users consume IT. Although hyperconverged infrastructures originally sufficed, their design neglects the ability to span and scale a choice of resources across the data center and multiple public clouds. NetApp® HCI delivers an elastic hybrid cloud infrastructure that enables customers to start anywhere, run anywhere, and manage everywhere.
