With more organizations embracing cloud mandates and moving quickly to flash-accelerated, shared storage infrastructures, NetApp has introduced a new line of enterprise storage systems and enhanced software designed to accelerate the broadest range of virtualized applications.

"As they adapt their IT operations to improve service delivery and embrace cloud mandates, CIOs recognize the advantages of shared storage infrastructures," said George Kurian, Executive Vice President, Product Operations, NetApp. "Our new FAS8000 series and enhanced software offerings allow customers to respond quickly to changing business needs, move seamlessly to an era of unbound clouds, and eliminate the overprovisioning of people, time, and money."

  • The new NetApp® FAS8000 series is the first enterprise storage system to unify SAN, NAS and storage virtualization into a single hybrid array. It is NetApp's first FAS platform designed specifically for scale-out storage environments built on clustered Data ONTAP.
  • The new FlexArray virtualization software enables existing storage to be managed by Data ONTAP for a greater return on investment and makes legacy storage cloud-ready. The software enables the FAS8000 to virtualize and manage third-party arrays and delivers a nine-month payback guarantee.(1)
  • The new release of clustered Data ONTAP, version 8.2.1, extends nondisruptive operations (NDOs) and improves data security and management of CIFS environments.

NetApp centers on its innovation strategy for flash-accelerated, cloud-integrated storage solutions for the broadest range of shared and dedicated infrastructure environments. Data is at the heart of business innovation, and NetApp helps organizations free data to move unbound across private and public clouds. Its industry-leading enterprise storage systems and software meet customer needs across any workload, any deployment model, and any data type.
