SUNNYVALE, USA: NetApp introduced two new hardware platforms and updated a third to address the broad performance requirements of data-intensive applications.
The new hardware platforms are NetApp EF550 all-flash array, which delivers high performance and consistent low latency for business-critical applications for which responsiveness and enterprise reliability are critical; and NetApp E2700 for small remote/branch offices requiring optimal price/performance. NetApp E5500 has been updated for performance, density, and modular flexibility for the widest range of data-intensive workloads.
The new platform releases continue to execute against the storage industry’s most innovative roadmap, which recently included NetApp’s unveiling of a comprehensive strategy for cloud integration. As organizations turn to hybrid cloud environments to optimize costs, seize opportunities, and mitigate risks, NetApp is providing its clustered Data ONTAP platform for seamless cloud management across any blend of private and public cloud resources.
George Kurian, executive VP, product operations, NetApp, said: “Our product innovation strategy is to deliver the industry’s leading portfolio of cloud-integrated and flash-accelerated storage and data management solutions. These solutions satisfy our customers’ needs for their multiple workloads and deployment models, which are either dedicated or as part of a shared infrastructure.
“By expanding our EF-Series all-flash arrays and E-Series platforms we are meeting growing market demand for dense, performance-oriented architectures and delivering superior performance, reliability, efficiency and scale.”
