To build a better hybrid cloud experience that solves IT challenges like data security, operational efficiency, and future growth, you need a solid foundation. Loaded with industry-leading innovations, NetApp® ONTAP® data management software gives you every advantage, everywhere your data lives – on-premises, in the cloud, and in between.
We get it—you have many “#1" priorities.
With ONTAP, you don’t need to compromise to achieve these priorities. You can quickly respond to new business challenges, simplify and automate your day-to-day activities, and impress your team. Whatever your data management needs—on your premises and in the cloud—ONTAP has you covered.
The latest ONTAP release includes:
All these technologies, and many more, are delivered through the new NetApp ONTAP One, the industry’s most comprehensive data management suite, which includes all available ONTAP software.
Build a better hybrid cloud today. ONTAP helps you create a storage infrastructure that reduces costs, accelerates critical workloads, and protects and secures data across your hybrid multicloud.
Wherever your data is, keep it safe, protected, and ready when you need it. Defend against ransomware attacks and security breaches with autonomous protection and a Zero Trust architecture. Deliver the level of data availability that each of your business applications requires.
Create an agile, future-proof storage environment while reducing TCO across your IT estate, whether on premises, hybrid, or in public clouds. Easily adapt to ever-changing needs and business conditions, and speed up your cloud adoption to meet business demands.
Reduce complexity with a consistent, unified data management environment across your hybrid cloud. Automate operations, streamline business processes, and reduce your overall TCO. Simplify and automate day-to-day activities for staff, so you can shift skilled workers from operational tasks to more strategic projects.
Speed critical workloads with outstanding performance across your hybrid cloud. Plus, deliver predictable performance to all your consolidated applications with quality of service (QoS) minimums and maximums. And scale performance and capacity without disruption.
Lower storage costs with data reduction technologies that minimize your data footprint. And by automatically tiering cold data to public and private clouds, it's easy to maximize your high-performance storage capacity and lower your overall TCO.
Ransomware is a significant threat to your organization—not only because of the potential loss of data but also from the monetary impact and risk to your company’s reputation. Industry-leading NetApp solutions can help you recover quickly from ransomware attacks and prevent ransomware from spreading in the first place.
Fast, trusted automation for your day-to-day tasks. Infrastructure in seconds, not minutes or hours, with time to completion that’s over 50 times faster. That’s what you can expect to achieve by automating your ONTAP configuration management with Ansible. The NetApp portfolio of easy-to-use, certified Ansible modules can help you automate and simplify up to 100% of your repetitive day-to-day tasks.
All-flash storage is great for delivering consistent, fast response times for critical business data. But when that data is cold and no longer regularly retrieved, it's not optimal to keep it on an all-flash system.
Free up space on your NetApp AFF system by using the innovative capabilities of Cloud Tiering, powered by ONTAP FabricPool technology. Data tiering automatically and seamlessly moves cold data to a lower-cost storage tier, either in the cloud or on premises. You can tier to your choice of the leading cloud providers—AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud, or Alibaba. You can also tier to NetApp FAS systems or NetApp StorageGRID®, an on-premises object-based storage solution that's cost effective for deployments larger than 200TB.
You can reduce your primary flash storage needs by more than 50% without compromising performance, efficiency, or protection. Decrease the size of a new AFF system configuration, or reclaim capacity on an existing AFF system and consolidate more workloads on it.
Your applications likely have different availability requirements, depending on how crucial they are for your business. The comprehensive data protection and business continuity capabilities that are built into ONTAP offer a broad range of solutions to safeguard your operations and keep them running smoothly.
Protecting your data at rest is crucial for your sensitive information. You can deploy two types of NetApp solutions that deliver FIPS 140-2 AES-256 bit encryption:
You can also deploy both hardware- and software-based encryption simultaneously, providing two layers of protection for your most sensitive data.
Besides encryption, NetApp offers a leading data security portfolio to help you address today’s security threats and requirements for governance, risk, and compliance.
Snapshot™ technology underlies an innovative ecosystem of high-availability, disaster-tolerant data-protection solutions for your ONTAP environment. Because Snapshot copies have no performance impact, use minimal storage space, and are safe to deploy on running systems, administrators can maintain frequent, low-impact copies of files, directory hierarchies, LUNs, and application data on a running system.
Snapshot technology significantly improves the frequency and reliability of backups, and it allows near-instantaneous, secure, user-managed restores. Users can directly access Snapshot copies to recover from accidental deletion, corruption, or modification of their data.
Snapshot copies can also be used to instantly create writable clones. You can use these NetApp FlexClone® volumes for development and testing of new business applications and for report generation and analytics. Also, FlexClone volumes don’t consume additional storage space.
Do you need to retain files to meet regulatory or governance requirements and to support litigation holds and event-based retention?
NetApp SnapLock® technology is designed for these situations. It prevents files from being altered or deleted until a set retention date. SnapLock does this by creating nonrewritable, nonerasable data on hard drives or flash media by using write once, read many (WORM) file locking.
Choose between two deployment options:
SnapLock also can incrementally append files while they remain locked, making it ideal for audio or video surveillance and logging.
Do you need better ways to delete confidential data that was placed on an insecure device or moved to an unauthorized location? Just deleting the file isn't sufficient.
Previously, security departments often needed to take away the storage system for days or weeks to resolve data spills. Now, with the secure purge feature in ONTAP, you can remediate data spillage online while the system is in use, significantly decreasing the time and hassle. Third-party testing has proven that it works.
Secure purge completely removes spilled data from the physical media where it was placed, on both HDDs and SSDs. It cryptographically shreds deleted files on NVE volumes by retaining active files and deleting the encryption key used to lock the spilled data.
In addition, secure purge provides a state-of-the-art “right-to-erasure” capability that can help you meet General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements.
In less than 5 minutes, you can get an up-close, hands-on look at how database backup and space-efficient replication are simplified with ONTAP technology.
