NetApp Renew partnership with Aston Martin Aramco Formula One


By leveraging the data NetApp stores, the Aston Martin Aramco team reached the podium eight times, scored 280 points, and finished fifth in the Constructors’ Championship in the 2023 Formula One season.

The Aston Martin Aramco Formula One Team and NetApp have renewed their partnership. NetApp has been a key partner for the team since it returned to Formula One racing in 2021 after more than 60 years away from the track. This partnership renewal builds on the previous three years of successful collaboration, empowering Aston Martin Aramco to use NetApp’s storage technology to instantly store, manage, and access the immense amounts of data the team needs to optimize its performance.

During any race, the Aston Martin Aramco team collects data from hundreds of sensors, including real-time performance statistics such as track temperature, tire degradation, and aerodynamics. Instant access to that data, both trackside and at the team’s state-of-the-art AMR Technology Campus (AMRTC), gives the team the data it needs to adapt its race strategy in real-time. 

“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,” said Clare Lansley, CIO, Aston Martin Aramco. 

“NetApp and the Aston Martin Aramco team are well matched as partners because we are both dedicated to the pursuit of breakthrough performance and true innovation. When Aston Martin returned to the Formula One circuit after more than 60 years away, they needed a technology partner to help them rise to every moment, both on and off the track. NetApp provides Aston Martin Aramco with an intelligent data infrastructure that runs at the speed of Formula One,” said Gabie Boko, Chief Marketing Officer, NetApp.

NetApp data solutions enable the team to fuel its relentless pursuit of innovation as it designs faster vehicles and optimizes its race strategy. By having NetApp as its Global Data Infrastructure Partner, the team will receive continued support for its data storage and analysis. The NetApp FlexPod data center solution helps the team instantly access and store immense amounts of data, transferring data quickly and efficiently between trackside, race headquarters, and the factory to enable near-real time decisions that affect race strategy.

NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP ensures enterprise reliability and continuous operations in case of failures, so the team’s data is always there when it needs it. The entire NetApp solution can scale and grow so the team can rise to any challenge even as its IT requirements grow and change.
