Canonical has collaborated with NetApp to build unique open cloud solutions. The new partnership is set to leverage Ubuntu OpenStack and NetApp storage technologies to bring advanced cloud-centric 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 OpenStack,” said John Zannos, vice president of cloud platform and alliances, Canonical, in a joint statement.
Canonical has been largely focusing on the growth across IoT (Internet of Things) and cloud areas. The latest deal enables it to move further on the latter avenue and 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 advanced new ideas from concept to production,” said Anthony Lye, senior vice president of cloud business unit, NetApp.
California, San Francisco-based NetApp recently joined Canonical Cloud Partner Program. Further, the data management and storage company has big plans for delivering Open Cloud Solutions for enterprises.
Help build advanced cloud solutions
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 provide organisations with the least efforts to deploy and manage OpenStack.
