One of the main components of the mantra “all companies are software companies” is organizations’ DevOps must deploy and update applications rapidly and at scale. The supporting infrastructure hosting the production pipelines and deployments must also be both safe and sound, regardless of whether it is on the cloud, on premises or — more likely — a mix of both
The main theme of this episode The New Stack Makers podcast, hosted by Alex Williams, founder and editor in chief of The New Stack, was how NetApp offers a foundation for DevOps deployments and data management across cloud native and on premises infrastructures. NetApp’s Diane Patton, hybrid cloud services (NetApp Cloud Services on HCI) and Robert Esker, product management and strategy, discussed, among other things, how NetApp’s HCI can serve as the underlying foundation for a number infrastructures.
"We provide this common set of tools, so no matter where the developer wants to deploy their application, they can use that exact same toolset and deploy it either on-prem or deploy in any of the major cloud providers as well.," Patton said.
