To establish the most effective shared infrastructure data storage environment for the Federal Government as it embraces cloud computing, it is necessary to examine all parts of the IT stack involved, including enterprise storage. New best practices in shared infrastructure data storage can dramatically improve the cost, flexibility, and environmental effect of an overall cloud architecture. This shared storage architecture can dramatically improve the efficiency of traditional hard drive–based storage and can virtualize legacy storage systems. A multi-tenant virtual storage solution can provide open data sharing while maintaining necessary security controls for each agency collocated within the Federal cloud. As the leading provider of enterprise storage to the Federal Government and the chief innovator of shared infrastructure data storage platforms, NetApp will share best practices to make the Obama administration’s vision for cloud computing a reality.
