As businesses strive for faster time to market and greater customer satisfaction, they must improve the speed and responsiveness from key business operations. IT leaders recognize the benefits of all-flash storage for delivering consistent, low-latency I/O to critical workloads. As flash goes mainstream and more types of workloads run on allflash storage, it is also critical for a solution to deliver enterprise-grade data management capabilities for a shared environment. However, many all-flash array solutions lack robust data management, effective data protection, seamless scalability, and deep application integration.
NetApp All Flash FAS (AFF) systems address enterprise storage requirements with high performance, superior flexibility, and best-in-class data management. Built on ONTAP data management software, All Flash FAS systems speed up your business without compromising on the efficiency, reliability, or flexibility of your IT operations. As an enterprise-grade all-flash array, it accelerates, manages, and protects your business-critical data, now and in the future, enabling an easy and smooth transition to flash for your datacenter. With AFF systems, you can:
Accelerate the speed of business:
- Built on the flash-optimized NetApp WAFL (Write Anywhere File Layout) system, ONTAP FlashEssentials enables consistent submillisecond latency and up to 4 million input/output operations per second (IOPS). It can meet the demands of a multitude of workloads in a shared environment.
- The All Flash FAS system delivers 4 to 12 times higher IOPS and 20 times faster responses for databases than traditional HDD systems do.
- The All Flash FAS system improves productivity and customer satisfaction and opens up new business opportunities enabled by the lightening-fast speed.
Simplify IT operations while transforming data center economics:
- Compared with traditional HDD systems, with All Flash FAS, you can reduce power consumption and rack space by up to 11 times and slash support costs to a third by eliminating performance tuning.
- You can get flash at the cost of HDDs thanks to NetApp data reduction technologies, enhanced with new inline data compaction.
- As the industry’s leading all-flash storage that supports both synchronous and asynchronous replication, All Flash FAS can support all your backup and recovery needs with a complete suite of integrated data protection.
Future-proof your investment with maximum deployment flexibility:
- The All Flash FAS system is ready for the data fabric. You can move data between the performance tier and the capacity tier, on the premises or in the cloud.
- All Flash FAS offers the broadest application ecosystem integration for VDI, database, and server virtualization.
- With no more silos, you can nondisruptively integrate flash into your infrastructure and scale out as your requirements grow.
The flash-suited write architecture reduces latency and increases the longevity of SSDs.
