NetApp data tiering solutions

: Optimize, simplify, and save

Intelligently manage your growing data footprint with NetApp® data tiering. Our solutions are designed to help you save money, automate the tiering process, and flexibly leverage tiering options on premises and in the cloud.

Why NetApp for data tiering?

Flexibility and savings in one

With NetApp data tiering solutions, your data is automatically placed on the right tier, at the right time, according to your defined data-aging policies—delivering savings immediately. It’s managed from a single point of control, and your cold (tiered) data is automatically retrieved to your high-performance tier if it becomes hot again. In other words, set it, forget it, and save... we take care of the rest!

Save up to 40%

Recapture up to 80% of the capacity in your high-performance ONTAP based storage tier—and save up to 40% of your storage TCO.

Maximize your flexibility

Choose from the broadest set of tiering options, in the cloud and on premises, and easily change tiering policies and destinations.

Automate your tiering process
