Cloud Volumes Service is NetApp’s new, fully managed hyperscale cloud service for enterprise users seeking high performance and reliability. Cloud storage comes in many forms, from object storage to block-level devices. However, many organizations simply require a ready-to-use, highly available, high-performance shared file service where scalability is not an issue. This is the solution that NetApp® Cloud Volumes Service offers as a native cloud marketplace service in AWS and Google Cloud Platform, and as a first-party service called Azure NetApp Files, delivered supported by Microsoft, built on NetApp technology in Microsoft Azure. Being able to provision NFS and SMB volumes on demand helps to simplify the deployment of cloud-based file services, database environments, and analytics clusters, to name a few use cases. Cloud Volumes Service and Azure NetApp Files come with many features to help ease the management of large volumes of data, such as support for NetApp Snapshot™ copies and cloning, which DevOps engineers can use to rapidly create writable clones of production data. Using synchronization features, users can consolidate data in the cloud from multiple sources, either on premises or from other systems in the cloud.
