In today’s business landscape, organizations face a range of challenges. IT budgets remain tight and under scrutiny. The complexity of ever-evolving technology and the IT skills gap pose significant hurdles. The threat of ransomware has emerged as a top priority for C-suite executives to address, while sustainability has become a strategic imperative. Moreover, every organization seeks the flexibility and power of the cloud. Amid these challenges, data infrastructure plays a pivotal role in empowering IT to modernize its infrastructure and overcome these obstacles. Infrastructure can enable efficient data management, analysis, and utilization, allowing organizations to make informed decisions, drive innovation, and stay competitive.
At NetApp, we’re constantly exploring practical strategies and cutting-edge technologies to help IT professionals navigate these challenges and harness the transformative potential of data infrastructure.
This is why we introduced our NetApp® AFF C-Series systems earlier this year. AFF C-Series arrays deliver performance that’s near the speed of flash at hybrid flash economics for NAS and unified use cases, enabling you to make your infrastructure faster, denser, and more sustainable—affordably. It’s no wonder that the AFF C-Series is seeing rapid adoption and wildly outperforming our expectations. You get a low-cost, high-quality storage solution. You can refresh your hybrid flash or 10K hard drive–based storage systems at a similar price while modernizing with all flash.
But we didn’t stop there. We also expanded our product portfolio and introduced NetApp ASA A-Series systems in May, extending the NetApp ONTAP® experience to all-flash, block-optimized storage systems to accelerate and modernize the data infrastructure for VMware and database workloads.
Building on the success of the AFF C-Series, we’re excited to share that we’re now bringing the benefits of C-Series to block storage. It gives me great pleasure to introduce the NetApp ASA C-Series family. The ASA C-Series is for those who need dedicated block storage capacity flash. It’s a resilient and flexible solution for capacity-intense workloads at optimized cost and density.
There are several reasons to choose ASA C-Series systems for capacity-intensive, business-critical workloads such as databases, VMware, and backup and recovery that don’t require submillisecond latency. You can modernize to All-flash SAN affordably while getting making your infrastructure faster, denser, and more sustainable—without breaking the bank.
