NetApp shared its cloud strategy with industry-leading Information Technology (IT) vendors and enterprise Value Added Resellers (VARs) to tap the vast opportunities in cloud services in India. According to an IDC study, around 40% of Indian enterprises are considering the adoption of cloud services to save costs and compete in the challenging market environment.

NetApp’s announcement was made along with Tata Communications Ltd, who are providing cloud infrastructure on NetApp platform. Global service providers and system integrators are also leveraging NetApp technology to create cloud service offerings for their own enterprise customers.

“NetApp believes that because there are several elements that must come together to create a cloud infrastructure, no single vendor is able to adequately address each and every layer,” said Surajit Sen, Director – Channels, Marketing & Alliances, NetApp India.

“It’s imperative that customers identify the right partners that can provide the services, technology, and integration necessary for their unique cloud needs. Today’s announcement not only spotlights the best-of-breed partners that NetApp has cultivated to help customers, but also helps validate our technology offering for the cloud thanks to the many service providers and system integrators who are leveraging NetApp solutions.”

Speaking on the occasion, Alok Bardiya, Vice President Managed Services, Marketing & Alliances, Tata Communications Ltd., said: “Tata Communications Ltd. has built its global hosting, on-demand storage services based on leading technologies and industry practices.

Using NetApp for our cloud-based services allows us to easily manage and monitor our infrastructure to provide secure, 24x7x365 availability and lower costs for our enterprise customers while relieving them of the day-to-day management of their IT infrastructure. Together with NetApp we enable our customers to flexibly support their business requirements today and then quickly scale up or down as their business needs change, paying only for what they need.”
