The digital economy is requiring companies to rethink how and where they store their data. Huge volumes of information must be made immediately accessible to employees, customers and partners around the world and new hybrid cloud infrastructures that combine public cloud and private storage benefits are now possible. This can’t be done from a single corporate data centre.
NetApp and Equinix have made it possible to create highly reliable, high performance, cost-effective storage for distributed business applications, cloud and virtualised environments. NetApp's efficient, flexible and cost-effective storage solutions ensure availability and improve business responsiveness.
By deploying NetApp products in Equinix International Business Exchange (IBX®) data centres, you can place massive amounts of content and applications closer to your end users to ensure an optimal user experience. And with NetApp as part of your Equinix deployment, you can locate reliable, scalable storage right next to your cloud service provider – enabling cost-effective hybrid solutions that provide all the cost and agility benefits of public cloud combined with the availability, security and compliance of your data on private enterprise storage.
NetApp is working with other Equinix technology partners to make it possible for Platform Equinix customers to capture new revenue streams, deploy new services and optimise end user experience. Enterprises can augment private data centre resources by accessing Amazon Web Services (AWS) public cloud with sub-5 millisecond response times for more cost effective disaster recovery, big data analytics, dev/test, backup, cloudburst, data centre migration and consolidation.

With NetApp Private Storage for AWS, organisations using on-premises NetApp storage can deploy similar equipment into an Equinix International Business Exchange (IBX®) data centre that offers AWS Direct Connect.
Enterprises and public sector organisations want to take advantage of the economic and agility benefits of the public cloud. Many organisations have top-down mandates to move a significant portion of their workloads into the cloud. But several challenges remain to cloud adoption.
