NetApp, a leader in cloud data services, is continuing its collaboration with the Italian-based Ducati Corse motorcycle racing team.
In the last 12 months, Ducati has increased the use of hyperconverged (HCI) solutions, which are now the basis for the IT infrastructure of branches in EMEA and are used on the track to improve performance.
In addition, all NetApp flash solutions are now powering over 200 applications, consolidating and protecting the entire Ducati data environment.
Ducati, supported by NetApp, has been carrying out numerous digital projects ranging from HPC simulations for motorcycle aerodynamics to the development of connected motorcycles, as well as from the design and implementation of the Ducati Link app – which allows all motorcyclists to configure parameters, record performances and itineraries and discover a new way of travelling, up to the improvement of safety and the development of new motorcycles.
NetApp has renewed the official sponsorship of the Ducati Corse motorcycle racing team for the 2020 MotoGP World Championship. “It gives us great pleasure to continue the partnership with NetApp, as we consider data and Digital Transformation a key component of our strategy for the future and for our success,” said Claudio Domenicali, CEO of Ducati Motor Holding.
