NetApp IT’s goal in the cloud, like many IT shops, was to develop and deploy software without hardware constraints, service business applications on-demand, and downsize data center footprint. Along with those capabilities, the team was well aware of the barriers they’d face adopting public cloud infrastructure–including cost. NetApp IT sought a solution that would displace the costs of traditional data centers, ensure minimal to no interruption of service, and involve limited resources for operational efficiency and staffing. The team started working with Spot to help lower cloud costs and experienced no impact to application performance and availability.
In this NetApp on NetApp INFORM Session, Domain Architect Tirou Chidambaram will discuss what Spot.io does, how IT was pivotal in the evaluation process for the product, and the real world results we have seen from implementing Spot.
