NetApp Unified Storage Architecture

NetApp unified storage innovations improve data center efficiency and enhance virtualization and consolidation.

NetApp introduced you to unified storage systems more than a decade ago. Our continued leadership and unwavering commitment to innovation have resulted in an architecture unified not only across protocols and disks, but also in storage efficiency, processes, data management, and data protection.

This level of unification is crucial if your data center is to respond to trends such as virtualization and consolidation. It’s no surprise that nearly 75% of all our virtualization deployments use a unified architecture.

A dynamic data center—built upon a shared, secure, networked storage infrastructure able to eliminate the “silos” of storage associated with various application tiers and with heterogeneous environments—can:

•    Increase the flexibility of your IT.
•    Boost your IT efficiency.
•    Magnify data-center savings in power, cooling, and space utilization.

Unified Views a First Step to Unified Storage Architecture

A unified architecture is great, but what about the rest of your environment? With a unified view of both real-time and future data, you can more easily migrate existing applications.

Simple Provisioning of Your Unified Storage Environment

Move to an on-demand mindset. Right size provisioning to meet the service level needs of business applications, databases, digital media content, or file services with automated, policy-based storage provisioning.

Unifying Your Multi-Vendor Storage Environment

NetApp V-Series open storage controllers let you manage disk arrays from NetApp, EMC, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, and Hitachi Data Systems with advanced storage efficiency, data protection, and data management features while maintaining your current storage investments.

Supporting Mixed Clients in Software Development

Eliminate the complexity and data bottlenecks in heterogeneous environments to improve collaboration. Build a multiprotocol environment that performs for all your developers.
