Don’t just settle for backups - transform your secondary data into value-generating assets using ONTAP’s hybrid cloud data management solution
NetApp Data Availability Services is a hybrid cloud data management platform for the IT generalist that leverages and extends NetApp Snapshot™ technology. Simplify DevOps and derive business insight from your cloud data copies by creating new applications in the public cloud.
About NetApp Data Availability Services
Backup to the cloud for data protection, then reuse Snapshot copies to build custom applications leveraging AWS infrastructure
Data-as-a-Service for the IT Generalist
NetApp Data Availability Services is not just about backup – it is a data management platform that simplifies the orchestration of data workflows across the hybrid cloud.
Designed specifically for the IT Generalist, specialized training is not necessary to perform data protection operations. Operators will quickly adapt to the simplified UI/UX and be able to perform backups from on-premises ONTAP® storage and replicate storage-efficient Snapshot copies to the cloud securely as data is encrypted over the wire. A simple search of the cloud-native extensible catalog will help locate granular data objects so they can be restored on-premises or to an alternate location. NetApp Data Availability Services streamlines data protection operations while reducing costs of IT, improving the speed to business outcomes and generating incremental value for the organization.

Use Snapshot copies in Amazon S3 with NetApp Data Availability Services to build custom applications that leverage AWS infrastructure
Copy to Cloud Intelligent Data Format
Provide applications with direct access to NetApp SnapShot copies stored in AWS S3 using Copy to Cloud intelligent data format.
The Copy to Cloud (C2C) data transport technology replicates Snapshot copies to AWS S3 object stores. Moreover, it transports associated metadata with intelligence to create “active data” copies in the cloud. Once resident in the cloud, you can develop or deploy cloud applications with direct access to this intelligent target data to gain insight and derive additional value.1 As an alternative to the traditional DevOps model to build on-premises applications from a CAPEX budget, this cloud-based approach allows you to transform your business and build new cloud applications that benefit from cloud economics using an OPEX model.

ONTAP Across the Hybrid Cloud
The NetApp Data Availability Services solution consists of three components:
- An AWS cloud-resident application, which includes the orchestration user interface and an extensible catalog that tracks data copies for intelligent searches
- The NetApp Data Availability Services proxy service, which is embedded within ONTAP on the secondary storage system
- Copy to Cloud replication technology, an efficient and secure S3 data transport between ONTAP instances and the cloud S3 object store
The combination of NetApp Snapshot copies with SnapMirror® replication technology has provided ONTAP users with a combination of storage efficient features and performance for years. With NetApp Data Availability Services, ONTAP users can now build their own hybrid cloud data protection solution by extending their Snapshot copy protection to the cloud. Existing SnapMirror relationships between ONTAP primary and secondary clusters are auto-discovered and can now be scheduled with a new policy to be backed up to the cloud.
Cloud Networking and Security
The NetApp Data Availability Services app is deployed as an Amazon Machine Instance (AMI) that is launched on an AWS compute resource (EC2) from a NetApp website. During initial setup and configuration, the app automatically builds the data-tracking catalog within its own EC2 instance. For resiliency, this EC2 is then replicated to another EC2 within the same region but in a different Availability Zone (AZ).
