Tech OnTap is committed to helping you succeed today and prepare for the future. This month's lead story explains how all-flash arrays can accelerate virtual server environments. Our second feature introduces Docker and the potential advantages of container technology.
We continue our series on clustered Data ONTAP deployments with an inside look at Quasar Data Center. Finally, NetApp’s Customer-Inspired Change report, “Your Insight Becomes Our Actions,” details the tangible improvements we’ve made in the customer experience based on surveys, interviews, and advisory board discussions.
Maximum virtual server performance requires storage that not only accelerates virtual machine operation but also addresses the needs of applications running in the environment. Learn how all-flash storage solves the I/O blender effect, find out which storage features are important, and see how All-Flash FAS can deliver a rapid return on investment.
Docker simplifies the development, testing, and deployment of applications. NetApp CTO Jay Kidd says Docker will replace hypervisors for scale-out applications. It’s time to come up to speed on Docker. This article explains what Docker does, how containers compare to the hypervisor model, what to consider in terms of storage provisioning, how to get started, and more.
