NetApp Cloud Partner Program Joined by Egnyte; Jon Mellon Comments

NetApp logo_EbizA NetApp program that allows partners to deliver cloud-based infrastructure and customers access to NetApp offerings has been joined by file sharing and synchronization service provider Egnyte.

Egnyte said Tuesday the NetApp Partner Program for Service Providers helps the company offer enterprises a full NetApp storage platform regardless of whether they opt to use local storage, a cloud system or both, according to an Egnyte statement.

NetApp users will have access to Egnyte services for designing and implementing file-sync-and-share products, the company said.

The Egnyte offering gives enterprises the choice and control to maximize file sharing speed, lessen network congestion and improve security.

It also helps customers track file transactions from NetApp storage, in the Egnyte Cloud or in any NetApp-authorized cloud storage service.

“Our collaboration with Egnyte helps our mutual customers leverage NetApp technology to securely access their data in a flexible, efficient shared infrastructure that spans from the customer’s premises to the cloud,” said Jon Mellon, vice president and general manager of NetApps’ service provider partners.
