Centralized data storage in AWS with distributed access
Together with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and our partner NetApp, we have designed our “Centralized Data Management in AWS with Distributed Access” solution for you, based on AWS best practices and proven tools such as Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP, for your efficient data management in the AWS Cloud.
Organizations with multiple locations often struggle to manage and operate several data islands spread across multiple locations, which complicates management, backup and compliance.
However, centralized data storage often brings speed (latency) issues as well. On-premise solutions are also not scalable and certainly not the solution of choice for cloud-first strategies.
Our Consulting Services
We are happy to support you in all phases of your cloud journey – based on AWS best practices and trusted tools such as Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP.
A structured approach and a clear AWS cloud strategy are essential for the success of the cloud transition.
And to accelerate cloud transition, enterprises should rely on experienced professionals like AWS, NetApp, and tecRacer right away.
Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP (= centralized file sharing) enables organizations to consolidate distributed file servers – no matter where in the world they are located – into a single, high-performance, managed environment.
NetApp Global File Cache (= local caching) enables global file sharing for employees in edge locations.
With the help of AWS Direct Connect, large enterprise sites – as an alternative to Global File Cash – can also be connected directly to the AWS Cloud (subject to availability).
Relief for IT teams
A central FS in the cloud relieves often overworked IT teams of routine tasks.
Compared to data islands, centralized data storage is more efficient to manage.
Central FS in the cloud is scalable, robust and highly available. At the same time, it eliminates the need for local backups.
The solution leverages NetApp storage efficiency for primary and back-up data (hot and cold data).
