NetApp Brings NFS to Microsoft Azure

NetApp expands its partnership with Microsoft as it announces of the integration of NetApp Network File System (NFS) technology into the Microsoft Azure cloud.

NFS offerings are already available on public clouds, but the Microsoft-NetApp partnership delivers NFS natively in Azure via the cloud's console. As such it is available to both NetApp and non-NetApp customers, and promises levels of NFS performance identical to those of on-premises datacentres.

Through the Microsfot Azure Enterprise NFS services admins can also provision, automate and scale NFS services by using RESTful APIs. Data protection comes through on-demand automated snapshots, and the service supports both NFS V3 and V4 workloads to customers operating in the cloud and hybrid cloud. It also integrates with other Azure services, such as analytics, SQL services and SAP Hana for Azure.

Accelerite Intros Rovius Hybrid Cloud

Software developer Accelerite looks to take on cloud heavyweights VMware and Nutanix with Rovius Cloud-- a hybrid cloud platform based on CloudPlatform, which was acquired from Citrix back in March 2016.

Rovius Cloud runs on commodity hardware, hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) or blade servers, and is server, storage and hypervisor agnostic. It supports both software-defined storage and legacy SAN and NAS appliances, as well as VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix XensServer and any others.

The platform also allows organisations to provision workloads from on-premises datacentres to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) public cloud, with similar functionality to follow for Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure.
