NetApp launches cloud-native storage solution for containers

After its purchase of cloud storage automation specialist Spot for $450 million this past June, NetApp is releasing its first new product under the brand. Called Spot Storage, it’s a “storageless” solution that’s designed to enable automated administration of cloud-native, container-based applications.

NetApp describes Spot Storage as a cloud-based, serverless offering for application-driven architectures that run microservices-based applications in Kubernetes containers.

“Serverless computing” is a bit of a misnomer. Your application and data still reside on servers, but they’re not tied to one particular physical location.
