NetApp AFF A-Series

Data-driven organizations require an agile and efficient IT infrastructure to meet the demand for fast, secure, and continuous data access. A fundamental first step in undertaking an IT transformation is to modernize your infrastructure with all-flash storage to improve speed and responsiveness for critical business applications. New workloads, such as data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), and deep learning (DL), demand extreme performance that first-generation flash systems can't deliver. Additionally, more and more organizations are adopting a “cloud first” strategy, which means they need enterprise-grade data services for a shared environment across on-premises data centers and the cloud. As a result, modern all-flash arrays must provide robust data services, integrated data protection, seamless scalability, and new levels of performance— plus deep application and cloud integration.


Accelerate applications

  • Speed up your critical applications with lightningfast end-to-end NVMe enterprise all-flash array.
  • Run artificial intelligence and machine learning applications with lowest latency.
  • Support twice as many workloads and cut application response time in half with a modern NVMe-based SAN infrastructure.

Reduce data center costs

  • Minimize your data center footprint by storing up to 2PB of data in a 4U compact system.
  • Save SSD storage by 5 to 10 times with inline data reduction technologies.
  • Reduce power and cooling, rack space, and support costs dramatically.

Simplify IT operations

  • Unify data services across SAN and NAS environments, both on the premises and in the cloud.
  • Set up and configure a complete system and serve data within 10 minutes.
  • Safeguard your data with best-in-class integrated data protection and seamless cloud backup and recovery

Why NetApp AFF A-Series?

NetApp AFF A-Series all-flash arrays are smart, powerful, and trusted solutions that take advantage of modern cloud technologies to deliver the speed, efficiency, and security your data fabric needs.

It’s time for data modernization

A fundamental first step in undertaking any IT transformation is to modernize your infrastructure with high performance all-flash storage to improve speed and responsiveness for critical business applications. New workloads, such as data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), and deep learning (DL), demand extreme performance that first-generation flash systems can’t deliver. Additionally, adopting a “cloud first” strategy drives the need for enterprise-grade data services for a shared environment across your data center and the cloud. Your all-flash arrays must provide robust data services, integrated data protection, seamless scalability, and new levels of performance, as well as deep application and cloud integration.

NetApp AFF A-Series all-flash storage arrays are the answer

Powered by NetApp ONTAP data management software, NetApp AFF A-Series systems deliver the industry’s highest performance, superior flexibility, and best-in-class data services and cloud integration to help you accelerate, manage, and protect business-critical data across your hybrid cloud.

A wide range of organizations, from enterprise to midsize businesses, rely on AFF A-Series to:

  • Simplify operations with seamless data management, on the premises and in the cloud.
  • Accelerate traditional and new-generation applications.
  • Keep business-critical data available, protected, and secure.

Accelerates applications and future-proofs your infrastructure

In the modern data center, IT is charged with driving maximum performance for business-critical workloads, scaling without disruption as the business grows, and enabling the business to take on new data-driven initiatives. AFF A-Series systems handle all of it with ease.

Maximum performance for your most demanding applications

AFF A-Series systems deliver industry-leading performance proven by SPC-1 and SPEC SFS industry benchmarks, making them ideal for demanding, highly transactional applications such as Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, MongoDB databases, VDI, and server virtualization.

With the power of front-end NVMe/FC and NVMe/TCP host connectivity and back-end NVMe-attached SSDs, our high-end AFF A900 systems deliver latency as low as 100µs. Based on a high-resiliency design, the A900 also delivers high RAS and enables non-disruptive in-chassis upgrade from its predecessor A700. The A800 delivers high performance in a compact form factor and is especially suited for EDA and Media & Entertainment workloads. The midrange, most versatile AFF A400 system features hardware acceleration technology that significantly enhances performance and storage efficiency. And our entry-level, budget-friendly AFF A250, provides 40% more performance and 33% more efficiency at no extra cost compared with its predecessor. AFF A-Series also lets you:

  • Drive mission-critical SAN workloads with symmetric active-active host connectivity for continuous availability and instant failover.
  • Consolidate workloads to deliver up to 14.4 million IOPS at 1ms latency in a cluster with a truly unified scale-out architecture. Built-in adaptive quality of service (QoS) safeguards SLAs in multi-workload and multitenant environments.
  • Manage massively scalable NAS containers of up to 20PB and 400 billion files with a single namespace.
  • Improve the speed and productivity of collaboration across multiple locations and increase data throughput for read-intensive applications with NetApp FlexCache software.

Modernize with advanced connectivity

AFF A-Series all-flash systems deliver industry-leading performance, density, scalability, security, and network connectivity. As the first enterprise-grade storage systems to support both NVMe/TCP and NVMe/FC, AFF A-Series systems boost performance with modern network connectivity. With NVMe/TCP, which uses the commonly available Ethernet infrastructure, you don’t have to invest in new hardware to take advantage of the faster host connectivity. With NVMe/FC, you can get twice the IOPS and cut application response time in half compared with traditional FC. These systems support a range of ecosystems, including VMware, Microsoft Windows 10, and Linux, with storage path failover. For most customers, integrating NVMe/FC into an existing SAN is a simple, nondisruptive software upgrade.

Scale without disruption

With AFF A-Series, you can integrate new technologies and private or public cloud into your infrastructure nondisruptively. AFF A-Series is the only all-flash array that enables you to combine different controllers, SSD sizes, and new technologies so that your investment is protected. The NVMe-based AFF systems also support SAS SSDs, maximizing the flexibility and cost effectiveness of your upgrade.
