NetApp SolidFire

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.

Two 4ft C13 to C14 power cords included per node (storage nodes and FC nodes). While NetApp provides one power cord type and length with shipment, customers can procure the power cords of their choice from outside vendors. * SolidFire’s Effective capacity calculation accounts for Helix data protection, system overhead and global efficiencies including compression, deduplication and thin provisioning. SolidFire customers typically achieve an effective capacity range of 5x to 10x the usable capacity depending on application workloads.
