NetApp Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud Valuable Features

President/COO at ChartDoc

Confidential Computing is really the key for us because of the security requirements for HIPAA compliance. With HIPAA compliance, there are policies and rules in place on the ability to look at a patient's data. There are rules around security, encryption, and decryption on any part of that data. When you put in the data, it is encrypted when it goes to storage, and when you pull the data back, it has to be decrypted. And you have to have two-phase authentication built into that. The Confidential Computing adds another layer of security to the storage infrastructure, which is pretty slick stuff.

The NetApp service's high availability is very important when it comes to upscale and downscale. Our system is a digital system so it requires immediate response for telemedicine. When your patients are going through a telemedicine session, you need the video to work properly and respond in a timely manner, and the doctors are actually taking notes regarding that specific patient session.

In terms of its storage snapshot efficiencies, the service is highly efficient. We are only doing things in small batches right now because we have not converted all of the data, but we have tested them in the Google Cloud and they work efficiently.

  • High availability - there is no other way to achieve this. 
  • Shared volumes, because there aren't any options from Google Cloud to have shared volumes.

High availability is very important to us because we have a production environment. High availability is the highest priority for us to continue keeping our systems running.

We use a Snapshot every day. It is well-implemented and very easy to use.
