NetApp INSIGHT 2020 Digital
Relive the first ever all-digital NetApp INSIGHT conference from 2020, featuring ten NetApp IT sessions. Also check out all of our recent INSIGHT sessions from 2019 and 2021. Stay tuned for INSIGHT 2022, taking place November 1-3.
Containers as a Service (CaaS) Inside NetApp
Continuous integration (CI), continuous ceployment (CD), and DevSecOps are often used to describe modern secure development practices. NetApp IT CloudOne is a platform that embeds security and automation in its CI/CD processes to allow developers to build and host cloud-native applications using micro-services architectures running in containers. CloudOne CaaS is a container-as-a-service offering that lets the developer deploy a pre-packaged container through a DevSecOps pipeline.
Infrastructure as a Service Inside NetApp
NetApp IT recently introduced a second-generation infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offering built on ServiceNow. From a self-service portal, users are able to register their business applications directly into the CMDB; provision and deprovision virtual machines, logical load balancers, storage (NAS, block, object); and perform “day-2” operations like start, stop, resize, etc. Watch this session to watch a quick demo of the IaaS portal with its user interfaces and the architecture behind it.
NetApp IT Automation Use Case for Trident, OpenShift and Ansible
Like other organizations, NetApp IT is constantly looking for ways to improve operational efficiency and automate delivery. Using NetApp Trident, a fully automated persistent storage provisioner for Red Hat OpenShift, NetApp IT can quickly spin up compute resources for containerized applications while doing the same for storage.
The team also uses Red Hat Ansible Automation to maintain the desired state configuration on thousands of servers to eliminate hours of manual effort. Attend this session to learn how IT leverages NetApp Trident, along with Red Hat Ansible and OpenShift technologies, to embrace automation and improve the efficiency of IT services.
Managing Unstructured Data with StorageGRID
Like other organizations, NetApp IT must support the growing appetite for non-traditional workloads from cloud-based applications with access to data inside data centers, remote offices, and the public cloud. It is a growing demand for unstructured data that sprawls, is seldom updated, and meant to be accessed by multiple application services across geographical boundaries. This is the NetApp IT story of our journey with NetApp StorageGRID.
Speed Tour of NetApp IT Service Catalog for DevOps, IaaS and more
Automation, monitoring, and a self-service catalogue enables NetApp to use the cloud on its terms. The self-service catalogue―built on ServiceNow―allows our business users to choose what they want, i.e. the kind of compute, operating system, storage, containers, database, and other things, before kicking off orchestration and provisioning. It takes approximately 30 minutes to provide a usable and accessible configuration via the self-service catalogue. Watch this session to get a quick demo of the service catalogue inside NetApp for DevOps, IaaS, CaaS, and Database as a Service.
Fast File Uploads with S3 Object Storage Using NetApp StorageGRID
NetApp Support needed a fast, reliable, and secure way for customers to upload massive 100GB+ files. NetApp IT solved the problem by implementing a hybrid-cloud upload solution using NetApp StorageGRID. The solution has been proven up to 2 TB with multi-part upload features including pause, resume, and cancel. View this demo to learn about robust file uploads that work with technology stacks like S3 SDK, Angular, Node, and multiple public-cloud solutions.
Using StorageGRID and Ansible to create “S3 as a Service”
NetApp IT implemented a greenfield DevOps platform called CloudOne to provide a highly automated, self-service, cloud-based application development platforms. On this platform, database backups to StorageGRID are automatically created. Learn how IT created an “S3 as a Service” offering using StorageGRID and Ansible to automatically create a S3 bucket.
Does Your IT Transformation Need Some Love?
If you want to do what’s best for your business, you’re gonna need to give that IT infrastructure of yours some love. Gaining agility without spending a small fortune only comes from being smart about what you’re doing on-prem and leaning into cloud when you’re ready. Let’s get a behind-the-scenes look at how Ford Motor Company is giving their own infrastructure some love and acting more like a cloud service provider to the business.
Lean in with a Data Strategy
Today, enterprises around the world are leveraging more data and applying analytics to give them agile business models and processes for improved service delivery. As IT leaders, we must navigate digital and cloud transitions effectively with a data strategy. Bill will assess the ever-increasing importance of data in our arsenal of business tools, and discuss why organizations risk being left behind without an actionable data strategy.
Transitioning to the Cloud: the Future of Enterprise IT Infrastructure
As applications rapidly migrate to public and private clouds, application developers need and expect more from traditional enterprise infrastructure teams. To stay relevant, learn how NetApp IT implemented a greenfield DevOps platform called CloudOne to provide a highly automated, self-service, cloud-based application development platform with rapid onboarding and delivery, integrated software development pipelines, and new application run-time environments (e.g. containers).
