NetApp-HotLink Team Links Private Storage App to VMware Infrastructure; Lee Gates Comments

data ServersNetApp and HotLink Corp. have partnered to make NetApp’s private storage application for Amazon Web Services interoperable with VMware technology.

Private Storage for AWS works to leverage a HotLink transformation platform and help organizations build an information technology infrastructure to support both AWS and VMware cloud resources, HotLink said Wednesday.

HotLink says the NetApp tool also is designed to integrate with AWS Direct Connect for customers to address network latency issues.

“In order to gain the full benefits of flexibility, scalability and cost savings of public cloud, IT administrators need methods and technologies to combine public cloud and private data center resources in a holistic fashion,” said Lee Gates, a NetApp director for cloud solutions.

Lynn LeBlanc, HotLink CEO and founder, said the integrated offering is meant to help enterprises move workloads between on-premise VMware and off-premise AWS environments.

The NetApp-HotLink team also intends for the platform to support customers’ disaster recovery and business continuity efforts.
