Canon­i­cal, NetApp part­ner to de­liver OpenS­tack-based so­lu­tions

OpenSource For You - - Foss Bytes -

Canon­i­cal has col­lab­o­rated with NetApp to build unique open cloud so­lu­tions.

The new part­ner­ship is set to lever­age Ubuntu OpenS­tack and NetApp stor­age tech­nolo­gies, re­sult­ing in ad­vanced cloud­cen­tric de­vel­op­ments.

The in­te­gra­tion of NetApp with

Ubuntu OpenS­tack will ease the ef­forts for Canon­i­cal’s cus­tomers.

OpenS­tack is cur­rently be­ing de­ployed as an IaaS (In­fras­truc­ture-as-a-Ser­vice). But the new col­lab­o­ra­tive ser­vices will in­te­grate top-notch tech­nolo­gies like SolidFire and ONTAP into OpenS­tack re­leases.

“To­gether we are mak­ing it eas­ier for en­ter­prises to adopt OpenS­tack by tak­ing the guess­work out of de­ploy­ing and man­ag­ing it,” said John Zan­nos, vice president of the cloud plat­form and al­liances, Canon­i­cal, in a state­ment.

Canon­i­cal has been largely fo­cus­ing on the growth across the IoT (In­ter­net of Things) and cloud ar­eas. The lat­est deal en­ables it to ac­cel­er­ate its growth in the cloud space.

“We are ex­cited to be a part of Canon­i­cal’s OpenS­tack Tech­ni­cal

Part­ner Pro­gram and are com­mit­ted to the con­tin­ued de­vel­op­ment of in­te­grated cloud so­lu­tions to sim­plify IT de­liv­ery and rapidly ad­vance new ideas from con­cept to pro­duc­tion,” said An­thony

Lye, se­nior vice president of the cloud busi­ness unit, NetApp.

Based in San Francisco, USA,

NetApp re­cently joined the Canon­i­cal Cloud Part­ner Pro­gram.

The Canon­i­cal-NetApp part­ner­ship will help or­gan­i­sa­tions build au­to­mated, re­li­able and easily man­age­able hy­brid as well as pri­vate clouds. Cus­tomers can sim­ply de­ploy NetApp stor­age so­lu­tions and OpenS­tack us­ing Juju. This ef­fi­ciency will en­sure or­gan­i­sa­tions have to put min­i­mal ef­fort to de­ploy and man­age OpenS­tack.
