Network Attached Storage (NAS)

NetApp NAS solutions with clustered Data ONTAP give you reliable scale-out capabilities without reconfiguration.

NetApp® network-attached storage (NAS) solutions simplify data management and help you keep pace with growth while optimizing costs. Our NAS solutions give you nondisruptive operations, proven efficiency, and seamless scalability within a unified architecture. 

Deploy NetApp NAS storage with the NFS protocol for your challenging technical and business applications. NetApp is an innovator in NAS storage and NFS advancements. We pioneered NFS standards for file-based storage access in UNIX/Linux environments, and we were first to market with pNFS support for NAS. Our NAS storage solutions have been tested against the leading NFS RFC standards.

Consolidate your Windows® file servers on NetApp NAS with native SMB/CIFS support. Integrate NetApp NAS systems into your Windows environment with minimal-to-no disruption, and connect them to existing authentication services such as Active Directory. Use SMB/CIFS shares for applications such as SharePoint and SQL, as well as for your custom and traditional workloads. Take advantage of SMB 3.0 support to improve scalability and manageability for Microsoft® Hyper-V® environments.
