Canonical, NetApp partner to deliver OpenStack-based solutions
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.
