Why ONTAP Select for your hybrid cloud?

Robust enterprise software-defined storage (SDS)

NetApp ONTAP Select offers robust enterprise storage services that are easily deployed on your choice of commodity hardware from the comfort of your own data center. It combines the best of the cloud, in terms of agility and granular capacity scaling, with the flexibility, resilience, and locality of on-premises storage.

ONTAP Select converts a server’s internal disk drives, NVMe, SSD or HDD, as well as HCI and external array storage, into an agile, flexible storage system with many of the same benefits offered by dedicated storage systems based on NetApp® ONTAP® data management software.
