Typically, when you buy enterprise storage, you have to make hard choices. This is especially true with products from our competitors. Sometimes you can get the best performance, but it comes at a higher price. Sometimes you can get the cheapest system, but it doesn’t have the performance to consolidate enterprise applications or to serve data in a fast and consistent way. Sometimes you can only run SAN, and other times you get mediocre cloud integration.
AFF A250 technology is the ideal solution for virtualization and consolidation of mainstream enterprise applications (such as Oracle, SAP HANA, and Microsoft SQL Server). It also provides an attractive starting price for emerging workloads such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, real-time analytics, and MongoDB. It’s the latest example of NetApp’s focus on helping you modernize your infrastructure and meet the demands for fast, secure, and continuous data access. With the latest CPU as well as NVMe technology, the AFF A250 array delivers 45% higher performance with the lowest latencies compared to the AFF A220, and it leaves our competition in the dust.
To summarize, AFF A250 is simpler, faster, and more efficient than any entry-level AFF system we’ve ever launched. To learn more about the NetApp AFF A250 array, visit the AFF A-Series arrays page.
