Combine all-flash performance with best-in-class enterprise data management and integrated data protection tools.

Manage flash with unparalleled simplicity and flexibility using NetApp® ONTAP® 9 enterprise-grade data management software built for both SAN and NAS environments. Safeguard your data with industry’s most comprehensive data protection that is built into our All Flash FAS systems.

ONTAP 9 takes ease of management, storage efficiency, and performance to a whole new level.

Set up and serve data within 10 minutes. Eliminate performance tuning. Monitor and optimize performance with automated tools and predictive analytics.

Furthering the innovations in FlashEssentials, flash optimization technologies built on the flash-suited ONTAP WAFL® (Write Anywhere File Layout) file system, ONTAP 9 delivers up to 60% more performance than previous versions. New inline data compaction further reduces storage by placing multiple small data blocks in a single 4KB block when combined with inline data compression. For database workloads with small I/O sizes, the space savings could be as high as 67:1.
