NetApp Data ONTAP 8.3: Unified Storage Architecture

Simplify storage management. Improve data protection. Use Data ONTAP 8 in mixed-protocol and hybrid cloud environments.

NetApp introduced you to unified storage systems more than a decade ago and was the first vendor to support unified scale-out storage systems. You can simplify data management, improve data protection, and increase storage efficiency by using the NetApp® Data ONTAP® 8 storage operating system PDF

Data ONTAP provides a storage platform that is unified across protocols and offers a consistent set of processes, features, and data-management tools. It delivers native support for Fibre Channel, FCoE, and iSCSI, as well as the latest versions of NFS and SMB/CIFS network protocols.

Use Data ONTAP 8 as the data-management foundation for your hybrid cloud, and for virtualized, UNIX®, Windows®, and Linux® environments, no matter how complex your configuration. 

Data ONTAP 8 has scale-out capabilities that improve operational efficiency. You can focus on your applications and let clustered Data ONTAP handle the security and availability of your data.
