NetApp: Partnering For OpenStack Storage
NetApp showcased new open source cloud management solutions that work with its storage solutions.
The first is a collaboration with Red Hat to deliver an open hybrid cloud reference architecture based on the OpenStack IceHouse open source cloud software platform. The collaboration lets customers integrate Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform with NetApp storage and data management solutions to seamlessly build scalable and reliable private and hybrid clouds, the company said.
The second is new functionality for the OpenStack IceHouse release, including a move to bring Cinder block storage to NetApp's E-Series array family in addition to its FAS appliances, which already had that capability.
