NetApp, a global cloud-led, data-centric software company has launched its Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud in Tokyo.
This important milestone meets the high demand for enterprise-class cloud file storage in a key area of the world, the company said in a statement. Continuing its growth in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region, NetApp Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud will be available in Tokyo (asia-northeast1) starting September 2021, bringing its total regional availability to six Google Cloud regions in the Asia Pacific region.
The other five regions in APAC where NetApp Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud is available are Hong Kong (asia-east2), Jakarta (asia-southeast2), Seoul (asia-northeast3), Singapore (asia-southeast1) and Sydney (australia-southeast1). Enterprises are moving their applications to the cloud to lower costs and improve agility, and their storage platforms need to evolve – without sacrificing capabilities or quality, the company said.
Specifically, business-critical applications in the cloud need a storage platform with data management capability, high availability, predictable performance, scalability, and reliability, all at the right cost. “As one of the fastest-growing technology markets, the APAC region has been important to NetApp and Google Cloud since the beginning of both companies’ strategic partnership,” said Sanjay Rohatgi, Senior Vice President and General Manager, APAC, NetApp.
“NetApp Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud is a powerful file storage service that can run enterprises’ most demanding workloads in Google Cloud, without the need for code modification or refactoring. It is integrated into the Google Cloud Platform console, built on NetApp ONTAP technology, and sold in the Marketplace and supported by Google Cloud. It takes only a few minutes to set up and supports both Linux and Windows applications,” he added.
NetApp Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud is built to support the most throughput-intensive workloads. Much like any other Google Cloud native service, NetApp Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud can be provisioned and consumed against enterprises’ existing Google Cloud agreements without the need for any term commitments.
