NetApp Expands Collaboration with Microsoft

NetApp, a software company, said early Tuesday that it plans to expand its strategic alliance with Microsoft (MSFT) to include hybrid cloud data services, built on the company’s ONTAP software for customers moving to Microsoft Azure.

The collaboration includes the development of new cloud data services, engineering collaboration to deliver a solution architecture that will speed up migration to Azure, integration of NetApp’s FabricPool functionality, and enablement of Azure as a backup destination for NetApp’s Cloud Control SaaS offering.
