The exabyte-scale data future is here. Complex new data pipelines from cutting-edge applications, machine-generated data, and IoT endpoints are all flowing into massive unstructured data repositories. NetApp built the network-attached storage (NAS) industry over 27 years ago and we’ve continued to innovate into this new era of scale-out NAS for unstructured file-based data management at speed and scale across the hybrid multi-cloud.
So we were gratified to receive a wonderful holiday present just at the close of 2019 – validation of being named a Leader in scale-out NAS via the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Scale-Out File-Based Storage 2019 Vendor Assessment.
