Customers consistently tell us that two of their biggest challenges are stopping ransomware attacks and simplifying operations to save time for their IT staff. NetApp has continued to deliver industry-leading storage solutions to help on both those fronts. Our newest release of NetApp® ONTAP® data management software, introduced earlier this month, makes autonomous ransomware protection even easier and stronger. And we’ve further simplified the management of consolidated workloads, so your applications get the resources they require to support your business.
Every year we release new versions of ONTAP, which provide our customers with our latest innovations and enhancements. We focus on helping them increase the security, flexibility, simplicity, performance, and efficiency of their storage environment, across on-premises and public cloud resources, while also reducing TCO.
Let’s jump into the highlights of how our recent enhancements can help solve your IT challenges.
Two years ago, NetApp introduced autonomous ransomware protection. It’s an industry-leading capability, based on machine learning, that can detect unexpected, out-of-bounds activity on file shares. If ONTAP identifies the start of a potential ransomware attack, it automatically alerts an administrator and creates a NetApp Snapshot™ copy of the data that’s beginning to be affected.
Three new enhancements for autonomous ransomware protection make protecting your data even easier and stronger:
Storage environments based on ONTAP have leading, built-in capabilities that are valuable for consolidating multiple workloads and managing private clouds. For example, they deliver high performance, scalability, reliability, and data protection, as well as a unified environment for block, file, and object.
With this latest ONTAP release, we’ve made it even easier to manage your on-premises consolidated workloads:
This latest ONTAP release includes many other enhancements that further increase your data availability, storage efficiency, infrastructure scalability, and object data management. ONTAP is the most unified storage environment in the industry, with proven experience in supporting block, file, and object.
This latest release, ONTAP 9.13.1, became publicly available on May 4. It’s ready to be deployed today in your data center through ONTAP One, the industry’s most comprehensive data management suite. ONTAP One simplifies your on-premises environment by including all available NetApp ONTAP software for AFF, ASA, and FAS systems. And with NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP, it’s easy to also deploy ONTAP in public clouds. Plus, with the new, unified NetApp BlueXP™ control plane, you can enable, manage, and optimize the ONTAP capabilities across your storage environment.
