NetApp integrates flash storage portfolio with Docker Volume Plug-In   


NetApp integrated its flash storage portfolio with the NetApp Docker Volume Plug-In (nDVP).

The storage portfolio includes the SolidFire SF series, All Flash FAS (AFF) and EF-Series.

The company said this native Docker plug-in allows containerized applications to easily maintain state by consuming persistent storage from NetApp.

This capability enables Docker developers and operators to take advantage of NetApp’s  all-flash storage and data management primitives.

“Containers have become so critical to our customers’ multicloud environments,” said Val Bercovici, NetApp SolidFire CTO.

“Microservices within cloud-native applications span public, private and hybrid cloud configurations, creating a need for consistent data management throughout that cloud spectrum.”

nDVP provides customers with a single, easy-to-manage plug-in that supports multiple platforms such as SolidFire, AFF and the EF-Series.”
