Designed to improve operational efficiency, reduce data center footprint, and maintain high availability, the performance-efficient NetApp® E5500 storage system meets demanding performance and capacity requirements without sacrificing simplicity and efficiency.
The E5500 is equally adept at supporting high-IOPS mixed workloads and databases, high-performance file systems, and bandwidth-intensive streaming applications. NetApp's patent-pending Dynamic Disk Pools (DDP) simplifies traditional RAID management by distributing data parity information and spare capacity across a pool of drives.
The modular flexibility of the E-Series—with three disk drive/controller shelves, multiple drive types, and a complete selection of interfaces—enables custom configurations optimized and able to scale as needed. The maximum storage density of the E5500 reduces rack space by up to 60%, power use by up to 40%, and cooling requirements by up to 39%.
Backed by NetApp's 20+ years of storage-development experience and more than 650,000 systems in the field, the E5500 provides a field-proven architecture with high reliability and 99.999% availability.
