Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud

NetApp is uniquely positioned to enable customers to transition to the Google Cloud infrastructure

NetApp and Google Cloud form a strategic alliance to provide tightly integrated, self-service, multi-transport protocol file services on Google Cloud. Customers can configure cloud-native file services resources, automate and scale cloud-native file services through simple API calls or the Google Cloud Launcher GUI.


NetApp and Google Cloud jointly provide the NetApp© Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud. The service enables organizations to remove the complexities associated with implementing cloud-native file systems, so they can get up and running quickly and easily knowing that their data is protected, encrypted, highly available and performant.

What’s unique about this partnership is that the service is designed to look and feel like native Google Cloud services, with integrated billing, API, UI and Google support.

File sharing is required by nearly every customer looking to move on-premises workloads to the cloud, but the file structure of on-premises workloads doesn’t necessarily translate easily to object storage such as Google Cloud Storage. We’re targeting vertical markets, SaaS applications, high-performance computing (HPC) enterprise customers, and scientific computing customers. Basically, any customer who intends to perform computing workloads that require file-based (NFS or SMB) storage space can use NetApp Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud.

Cloud Volumes Service

A Google Cloud-integrated file service with advanced data management capabilities, ease of use, and the performance, availability, and security needed to migrate and run enterprise workloads in the cloud.

Thanks to NetApp, we successfully migrated 100 million+ files into Google Cloud.
