NetApp disk shelves and storage media provide flexibility, reliability, storage efficiency, and cross-platform leverage.
NetApp offers a full range of high-capacity, high-performance, and self-encrypting disk drives plus ultra-high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs). Disk shelf options let you optimize for capacity, performance, or versatility. NetApp® Optical SAS interconnects simplify infrastructure while providing industry-leading performance.
Gain cross-platform leverage.
The same drives and shelves work across all FAS storage platforms. Nondisruptive controller upgrades allow you to change platforms without additional media purchases or data migration.
Enhance performance with flash.
Self-managing Virtual Storage Tier technologies, including Flash Pool, optimize data placement on flash for maximum performance—reducing by up to 75% the number of spindles needed for a given level of performance.
Enhance physical data security and prevent unauthorized data access with NetApp Storage Encryption (NSE) and a full line of self-encrypting drives.
Achieve enterprise-class resiliency.
Full redundancy is standard in all disk shelf designs. Advanced features such as alternate control path for out-of-band management, NetApp RAID-DP® for superior data protection, and Maintenance Center for advanced error recovery protect the availability of your data. Industry-first, optical SAS delivers high-performance, low-latency SAS connectivity across extended data center distances (up to 500M) for enhanced flexibility and resilience.
