How Agile Are You?

Here at NetApp U.S. Public Sector, we are truly excited about our new architecture, which we're calling Agile Data Infrastructure. Agile Data Infrastructure isn't a product; it's a new way of thinking about and managing data- and we think it will be especially helpful for government agencies seeking to manage the ever- increasing amount of data they deal with every day.  We describe this architecture with three I’s: Intelligent, Immortal and Infinite.  What do we mean by that?

  • Intelligent: This is essentially the storage efficiency we've become known for over the years.  It's managing data in the smartest way possible, to give people more space and to make it easy to manage and store.
  • Immortal: What we mean by "immortal" is that, in today's technology environment, you can't afford to be down- EVER. You need non-disruptive operations that are continuously available.  "Immortal" means that your storage keeps up with your most critical missions.
  • Infinite: It's become impossible to predict how much data you'll store next month, let alone next year.  Instead of trying to guess what you will need far into the future, an "infinite" architecture allows you to scale from where you are- without a forklift upgrade.

What all of this means to our public sector customers is a new way of managing data that keeps up with your mission and allows you to scale, without compromising efficiency or non-disruptive operations.  We know the criticality of your mission and that's what we had in mind when we developed our new Agile Data Infrastructure. 

But we want to hear from you. What do you think of NetApp’s new Agile Data Infrastructure?
