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
