AFF All-Flash

Designed specifically for Flash, the AFF A series All-Flash systems deliver industry-leading performance, capacity density, scalability, security, and network connectivity in dense form factors. With the addition of a new entry-level system, the new AFF A series family extends enterprise-grade Flash to midsize businesses and to fit any budget. At up to 7M IOPS per cluster with sub millisecond latency, they are the fastest All-Flash arrays built on a true unified scale-out architecture. The AFF A series allows customers to complete twice the work at half the latency as compared with the previous generation of AFF systems.

As the industry’s first All-Flash arrays to provide both 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40GbE) and 32Gb Fibre Channel connectivity, AFF A series systems eliminate the bandwidth bottlenecks that are increasingly moved to network from storage as Flash gets faster and faster. NetApp has been leading the All-Flash storage innovations with the latest SSD technologies. As the first All-Flash array to support 15TB SSDs, AFF systems, with the introduction of the A series, also become the first to use MSW SSDs, which further increase the usable capacity of SSDs significantly


Secure your intellectual property and confidential information, comply with industry and government regulations, and preserve your reputation by avoiding a publicized data security breach. Safeguard your data with enterprise-grade continuous data protection for NetApp-to-NetApp and heterogeneous deployments. Choose NetApp backup and recovery solutions to safeguard your critical data. Drive operational efficiencies by reducing backup time, improving data recovery, and cutting infrastructure, tape, and administrative costs.

Direct backups between NetApp systems minimize the need for external infrastructure and appliances. Increase your application availability with our industry-leading ability to failover to a Snapshot copy. NetApp FlexClone technology leverages Snapshot copies for development and testing. NetApp backups transfer only new or changed blocks — shrinking your backup windows, minimizing network traffic, and reducing disk capacity requirements by up to 90%.

Hybrid Flash

NetApp Hybrid Flash Storage Arrays E-Series systems running SANtricity are built for dedicated, high-bandwidth applications like data analytics, video surveillance, and disk-based backup that need simple, fast, reliable SAN storage. Accelerate your data analytics by 50% or more to deliver business insights — and results — faster. Build your data lake on the most open, scalable platform in the industry. Maximize Hybrid Flash performance and price. Support high-IOPS or bandwidth-intensive applications with the same system.
