The Hybrid Cloud Platform Inside NetApp and its -aaS Options

October 1, 2020 by No Comments

NetApp IT has built a hybrid cloud platform, called CloudOne, that is powered by NetApp technology and allows application developers to build cloud native applications using microservices architectures running in containers. The platform provides pre-defined standards for development, automated testing, and base images for DevOps. Application developers can also choose from two other options: Infrastructure as a Service or Container as a Service. Join this 2-part webinar to learn how NetApp powers the platform and about the IaaS and CaaS offerings, their user interfaces, and the architecture behind it.

Part One: Infrastructure as a Service

IaaS is used to provision and deprovision internal or external-facing virtual machines (VM) and perform post-provision operations on virtual machines, e.g. start, stop, reboot, resize, create, and delete images. On the storage front, volumes can be added, removed, resized, mounted, and unmounted directly by developers. Similarly, load balancers can be provisioned, deprovisioned, or modified.

Part Two: Container as a Service

CaaS is used by a developer when they already have a custom or vendor-provided image. CaaS provides the developer with a CD pipeline that streamlines the deployment with enterprise compliance by the click of a button.
