Leading the Future of Flash with NVMe
Your data deserves the best.
Modernize to a Faster Future Without Disruption
New solid-state technologies such as NVMe (Nonvolatile Memory Express), NVMe-oF, and SCM (also known as PMEM) will dramatically accelerate your infrastructure and reduce the time required to unlock the full value of your data. NetApp’s EF570 all-flash array now supports NVMe over InfiniBand for the most demanding data analytics workloads. NetApp’s Data Fabric, enabled by ONTAP 9 scale-out architecture, makes it possible to add these new technologies as they become enterprise-ready without forklift upgrades. It is even possible to enable NVMe-oF over many existing SAN deployments (FC-NVMe), with just a software refresh for select models of the AFF A-series all-flash arrays. Your new Data Fabric is ready when you are.
It’s More Than Just NVMe Drives
NVMe drives alone won’t deliver on the promise of the next performance revolution. You need to have an NVMe fabric and strategically deploy even newer storage media such as SCM to realize the true advantages of NVMe technology. The support of 100Gb NVMe over InfiniBand for the EF570 and E5700 systems takes data analytics performance to a whole new level.
NetApp’s Vision for NVMe over Fabric and Storage Class Memory
Hear NetApp Strategist and Chief Evangelist Jeff Baxter present “Creating the Fabric of a New Generation of Enterprise Apps.” You'll learn how data centers will implement an overall “flash fabric” which will reduce latency dramatically and power a new generation of real-time applications including data analysis, cognitive computing, artificial intelligence, and virtual and augmented reality. The fabric will take full advantage of the latest standards including PCIe, NVMe, and NVMe-oF, as well as persistent memory (storage at memory speeds).
Why NetApp – A Partner’s Perspective
Having shipped petabytes of NVMe drives, NetApp is a leader in NVMe innovation and a leading member of the NVMe standards body. The unique ability to leverage new solid-state media as part of the NetApp® Data Fabric multiplies the power of the next digital transformation. John Woodall of IAS answers the question: What’s the differentiator for NetApp?
In this NetApp® Tech ONTAP® podcast, we welcome our NetApp technology experts to discuss the next evolution in solid state storage – NVMe. We discuss whether NVMe is the future or just a passing trend and where NVMe fits within the NetApp product portfolio.
