These factors help accelerate digital transformation for clients, address critical IT imperatives, and modernize storage through data management by leveraging the power of the hybrid cloud.

Data Fabric

Introduced in 2014, NetApp’s (NTAP) Data Fabric solution was primarily based on ONTAP, which is the company’s flagship operating system. ONTAP is a scale-out storage solution that allows customers to cluster a variety of NetApp storage array models, resulting in a unified storage pool.

NetApp is moving its ONTAP software onto hyperscale clouds available in the marketplaces of Amazon Web Services (AMZN) and Microsoft’s (MSFT) Azure.

NetApp’s transition to Data Fabric solutions has expanded its business opportunities and resulted in revenue growth for the company. During a recent J.P. Morgan (JPM) conference, NetApp stated that it added data movement mechanisms between its SolidFire and E-series products to contribute and participate in the overall fabric.
