NetApp HCI 4

NetApp HCI delivers IT simplicity and business efficiency, security, and flexibility. NetApp HCI is as disaggregated hyper converged infrastructure that is deployed and maintained as a single appliance with compute and storage nodes that can scale independently. Independent node architecture gives you the ability to intermix product generations to unlock new capabilities without forklift upgrades. Once the minimum configuration requirements are met, now, starting at just 2 storage and 2 compute nodes, you can mix and match storage and compute nodes and sizes.

NetApp HCI gives you the ability to easily manage and run multiple applications with the predictable performance that your users and customers demand. Scale compute and storage resources independently so you never pay for more than you need. Deploy in minutes with a turnkey cloud infrastructure that eliminates the complex management of traditional three-tier architectures.

In addition, NetApp HCI is integrated into your data fabric. You can use the full potential of your applications, with the data services they require, across any cloud. With the NetApp HCI future-proof environment you can seamlessly add multiple new workloads such as SQL Server, MongoDB, and more, to support your business transformation.

 

NetApp E-Series Hybrid Flash

E-Series is built for dedicated, high-bandwidth applications that require simple, fast, reliable SAN storage such as data analytics, video surveillance, and disk-based backup. The NetApp E2800 is a hybrid flash storage system with a low acquisition cost and ever lower cost of ownership. Unlike other storage systems that add file or virtualization layers in the I/O data path, E2800 hybrid arrays are purpose-built to optimize performance for mixed workloads and improve IOPS and throughput to help you extract value from your data and take action faster. The E5700 system was designed with NetApp SANtricity OS adaptive caching algorithms, which address a large range of application workloads. Those workloads range from high-IOPS or bandwidth-intensive streaming applications to a mixture of workloads that deliver high-performance storage consolidation.

Cloud Volumes ONTAP

Cloud Volumes ONTAP provides a data storage solution on AWS, Google, and Azure that fits different customer requirements. Cloud Volumes ONTAP is deployed through NetApp Cloud Manager, a single-pane console. It provides installation, resource assignment, and data provisioning. Cloud Manager is used for day-to-day management activities of the cloud data resources and it simplifies cloud storage management by providing cloud monitoring and administration frontend for NetApp ONTAP storage systems for on the premises, hybrid, or in the cloud. All Cloud Manager functions can be executed with RESTful API calls, allowing automation and orchestration of cloud storage operations. Cloud Volumes ONTAP provides two methods for consuming storage: Pay-as-you-go is purchased directly from your cloud provider marketplace and is charged on an hourly basis. The bring-your-own-license or BYOL model is a license purchased from NetApp. It is installed in your Cloud Volumes ONTAP instance. BYOL subscriptions can be purchased in 1-, 2-, or 3-year increments.
