NetApp’s All Flash Arrays for Enterprises
Enterprises have depended on hard disk storage for decades, but the benefits are running out fast. All Flash Arrays (AFA) offer higher speed performance compared to hard disk drive storage for online software, such as payment portals.
The Problem with Traditional AFAs
Apart from performance, the current AFAs lack in the expertise of effective data management.
NetApp’s All Flash Arrays solve this problem, as it provides high storage options along with low latency. Plus, the combination of NetApp’s All Flash Arrays along with the data management services of Data Ontap provides unbeatable performance and storage efficiency.
Top Performance Solution
NetApp’s All Flash FAS Arrays provide excellent storage performance. For example, NetApp’s FAS8000 Arrays can accommodate up to 24 nodes, providing data transfer capacity up to millions at low latency. Moreover, it can support storage up to 5 PB.
Additionally, NetApp All Flash FAS Array use non volatile random access memory (NVRAM) to write the data on the flash disks.
Effective Data Management
Data Management on the NetApp All Flash FAS Arrays is managed by Data Ontap, which provides an outstanding uptime of 99.99%.
It has many advantages when used with NetApp All Flash Arrays which has 24 nodes to manage data workload. For example, most of the processes can be accomplished without server downtime like software and hardware upgrades, performance management, etc.
Moreover, data protection expenditure can be optimized by saving data from all flash nodes to the hybrid nodes at a reasonable cost. If the data storage threshold exceeds, Data Ontap registers a request and triggers AutoSupport for preventative maintenance.
Affordable Storage Option
Simply put, NetApp All Flash Arrays will save you time and money. If the stored data exceeds the storage capacity, you can use following technology for data management:
- Storage efficient replication
- Data compression
- Snapshot technology
NetApp claims 3 times better performance when using NetApp All Flash Arrays, as well as providing greater data efficiency to affordability ratio of 4:1. NetApp also provides customers dedicated services like free trial versions, support extension for customer service, and free controller upgrades.
