NetApp Data ONTAP 8.3: Unified Storage Architecture

Simplify data management. Improve data protection and ROI. Unify your storage resources across flash to disk to cloud.

NetApp introduced you to unified storage systems more than a decade ago as the first vendor to support unified SAN and NAS scale-out storage systems. Now, expand the benefits of unification by using Data ONTAP® 8 as your data management foundation for on-premises and off-premises storage resources, spanning flash, disk, and cloud.

Leverage the versatility of NetApp® clustered Data ONTAP software to maintain control of your data across your hybrid cloud. Use consistent processes, features, and data management tools everywhere.

The Data ONTAP platform provides leading opportunities for unification:

  • Across on-premises and cloud resources, including private cloud, public cloud, Cloud ONTAP™, and NetApp Private Storage for Cloud
  • Across SAN and NAS protocols, including Fibre Channel, FCoE, iSCSI, NFS, and SMB/CIFS
  • Across virtualized, UNIX®, Windows®, and Linux® environments, no matter how complex your configuration
