NetApp Data ONTAP: Unified Storage Architecture

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

NetApp introduced unified storage more than a decade ago with the industry's first unified SAN and NAS scale-out storage systems. Now, expand unification to flash, disk, and cloud by using the Data ONTAP® OS as your data management foundation for on-premises and off-premises storage.

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 offers 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
