Disk Shelves for FAS and V-Series Systems

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 optimise 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 and V-Series storage platforms. Non-disruptive 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, optimise data placement on flash for maximum performance – reducing by up to 75% the number of spindles needed for a given level of performance.

Strengthen security.
Enhance physical data security and prevent unauthorised 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 Centre for advanced error recovery protect the availability of your data. Industry-first, optical SAS delivers high-performance, low-latency SAS connectivity across extended data centre distances (up to 500m) for enhanced flexibility and resilience.
