When NetApp announced it had acquired SolidFire in February, our team was excited and curious. That goes beyond their cutting-edge technology. From an outstanding leadership team and culture to a vision for the future of the digital enterprise, SolidFire is a great fit for NetApp. We asked SolidFire CEO Dave Wright to give our Tech OnTap readers a deep dive into their technology. You will be as impressed as we have been with the SolidFire all-flash storage architecture. This month we also take a close look at how to automate your hybrid cloud and how FlexPod can solve your SQL Server challenges. Kristina Brand and Abhi Thakur show you how Workflow Automation (WA) can help simplify processes. In addition, Larry Freeman examines how the Cisco-NetApp FlexPod solution can solve your challenges with Microsoft SQL Server workloads.
These are exciting times at NetApp. Thanks for being part of it.
In February, NetApp completed its acquisition of SolidFire, a market leader in all-flash storage systems. Tech OnTap is pleased to welcome SolidFire founder Dave Wright to introduce our readers to their products and technology.
