NetApp SolidFire All Flash Storage
NetApp SolidFire is a scale-out high performance all-flash storage system built for the next generation data centre that can not only support thousands of applications within a multi-tenant shared infrastructure, but also guarantee their performance through its volume-level Quality of Service (QoS) controls. In addition, inline data reduction techniques and system-wide automation create substantial capital and operating cost savings relative to traditional disk and basic all-flash storage systems.
Why NetApp SolidFire
The agility, efficiency, and scalability benefits demonstrated from cloud computing infrastructure have raised the bar on expectations for IT service delivery. The pressure is on IT to:
• Rapidly deploy applications and service
• Provide more agile and scalable infrastructure
• Increase application performance and predictability
• Enable automation and end-user self service
• Raise operational efficiency and reduce cost
SolidFire is architected from the ground up to be the storage foundation of next-generation data centers.
Key Element OS Features
