Following this deal, NetApp has become the British team’s global data infrastructure partner for the 2024 season.
Data plays an essential role in the world of Formula 1 and NetApp has been with Aston Martin Aramco since the beginning, teaming up in 2021 as the team returned to the sport after a 60-year sabbatical.
The alliance has improved the group’s trackside operations as well as its new AMR Technology Campus at Silverstone.
Aston Martin Aramco and NetApp will collaborate closely to leverage NetApp’s cognitive infrastructure offerings to maximise data storage, accessibility, and cost-effectiveness for analysis to drive performance both on and off track.
Clare Lansley, CIO, Aston Martin Aramco Formula 1 Team, said, “We are delighted to renew our partnership with NetApp as we enter our fourth season together since returning to Formula One in 2021. NetApp has been with us all the way on this journey together and are fundamental to our trackside operations and at our Headquarters at the AMRTC in Silverstone. We use data to improve our performance and go faster and NetApp’s work with the team is vital to this success.”
Gabie Boko, Chief Marketing Officer, NetApp, said, “Part of the reason NetApp and Aston Martin Aramco make such good partners is that we share an understanding of the importance of data and an ambition for pushing the limits of performance. Our intelligent data infrastructure provides the team high-performance data storage that they can access from anywhere to make strategic race and engineering decisions both on and off the track.”
