October is National Cybersecurity month and I want to take the opportunity to highlight how Clustered Data ONTAP (cDOT) can enable secure cloud deployments. First, let’s take a moment to consider what security is trying to achieve within the cloud and the answer is: management or reduction of risk. Cloud service providers are assuming an enormous amount of risk by allowing different users to deploy a variety of services on their infrastructure. A security incident in the cloud can shatter the integrity of a cloud provider causing a level of distrust with customers that cannot be regained.
So what can NetApp do to help secure cloud deployments?
Enter Clustered Data ONTAP.
cDOT has several features that can reduce our customer’s risk when deploying a cloud and I would like to highlight three new features that makes cDOT the number one storage OS for secure cloud deployments.
