Did you know?

85% of companies are in the process of adopting a cloud transformation strategy. This means that enterprises are now executing plans to consolidate on-premise storage and infrastructure workloads into the cloud. CIO’s recognize that this approach allows for better TCO/ROI, scalability and flexibility, security, capacity management and data compliance.

Data consolidation with Azure NetApp Files, enhanced with Talon FAST™ Intelligent File Caching software, enables distributed branch offices complete access to the organization’s central data sets, while fully adhering to the principles of ACLs/NTFS permissions, giving end users streamlined access to all data while only caching active data locally at the edge.

Azure NetApp Files and Talon FAST™ provides:

√ A consolidated file storage environment leveraging the benefits of the public cloud and the scalability and performance from an enterprise storage service

√ A reduced storage infrastructure footprint at distributed locations through Intelligent File Caching

√ Significant cost savings in the hardware and management aspects of providing file services to distributed users

√ The ability to leverage the enterprise-class scale, flexibility, and security of Azure NetApp Files-resident data across all users, regardless of location, both on-premises as well as in-cloud

√ Increased flexibility and agility through enhanced global collaboration

√ Enhanced security by removing the risk of data loss/leak at distributed locations through error, disaster, and intrusion

√ Transparently extends central file storage to distributed locations, with distributed file locking, in real-time
