NetApp, a leader in networking and storage announced that it has launched a new data center in Hillsboro, Oregon. NetApp’s Oregon data center is going to be the core center for all of NetApp’s global customer support monitoring and corporate IT services.
NetApp’s storage system resources operate on its own storage operating system called the Ontap. This facility allows the provision and optimization of storage resources with efficiency, and 100% accessibility.
Cynthia Stoddard, chief information officer for NetApp, said: ”With the business and customer landscape changing at a rapid pace, we demand an intelligent storage architecture that can anticipate and respond to the business faster. Characteristics such as zero-touch automation, 100% utilisation, end-to-end visibility, and built-in efficiency features provide us with the ability to quickly respond to change and make sure we stay in lockstep with our customers' needs.”
“To achieve the growth objectives we have, we need to enable an environment where the data is essentially immortal; it is always available, never having to worry about scheduled downtime or gaps in our ability to support our customers.”
NetApp’s Oregon data center was designed in partnership with Design Realty.
The Hillsboro data center will house FAS6200 storage systems and a joint Cisco and NetApp FlexPod solution. This will provide all the virtual and physical computing solutions. It will also aide in leveraging Ontap storage operating systems to businesses. Approximately 1.5PB of clustered Data ONTAP storage will be deployed in the Hillsboro data centre.
