NetApp in containerization era

It’s not really a technical article as I usually do, but rather a short list of topics for one direction NetApp developing a lot recently, called “Containers”. Containerization getting more and more popular nowadays and I noticed NetApp heavily invests efforts in it, so I identified four main directions in that field. Let’s name a few NetApp products using containerization technology:

  1. E-Series with running containers on top of the platform
  2. Containerization of existing NetApp software:
    • ActiveIQ PAS
  3. Trident plugin for ONTAP, SF & E-Series (NAS & SAN):
    • NetApp Trident plug-in for Jenkins
    • Converged Infrastructure:
    • Oracle, PostgreSQL & MongoDB in containers with Trident
    • Integration with Moby Project
    • Integration with Mesosphere Project
  4. Cloud-native services & Software:
    • Cloud Insights
      • Monitor Kubernetes environment
      • NKS visibility in Cloud Insights
    • SaaS Backup for Service Providers
  5. Other
