NetApp NVMe solutions: Customer-focused technology leadership

Need help addressing your most stringent SLOs and business challenges? Look no further than our end-to-end NVMe-FC SAN solutions. They deliver the highest throughput and fastest response times yet for your enterprise workloads. And with new NVMe/TCP over traditional ethernet networks, the benefits keep rolling in.

Why NetApp NVMe?

Tangible, real-world impact for your business

Being first to market only matters when it has tangible benefits for customers. And that's what NetApp is all about.

We were first with end-to-end NVMe/FC, and now we're blazing another new path as the only major vendor to provide NVMe/TCP. Get it all with NetApp AFF A-series systems, which continue to provide a performance-obsessed foundation for your hybrid-cloud deployments.

With faster-than-expected adoption of NVMe-based all-flash arrays in recent years, new technologies like NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) will continue to fuel the evolution of the enterprise storage industry. NVMe/TCP is expected to be a key technology to drive mainstream market adoption due to its ubiquity and ease of deployment. Because it is based on Ethernet, it doesn't require new hardware investment. It is particularly attractive for hybrid-cloud deployments.

Use cases

Customer choice, rock-solid reliability, and public cloud flexibility are the values NetApp brings to customers with our NVMe solutions. NVMe accelerates many of today’s most critical business workloads.

Artificial intelligence (AI)

AI file systems such as GPFS that work better with block protocols will see performance improvements by adopting NVMe.

Machine learning (ML)/deep learning (DL)

NVMe enables high data ingest rates and much higher concurrent performance. Another NVMe benefit in these environments would be the ability to support large numbers of initiators concurrently running I/O against centrally located data lakes.

Internet of Things (IoT)

NVMe’s ability to support huge numbers of client connections enable AFF systems to act as both edge data collection points and centralized storage pools that can host the resultant data lakes created with all the sensor data.

The numbers don't lie

NetApp® AFF A800 storage systems with end-to-end NVMe/FC redefine the limit of what’s possible with artificial intelligence, deep learning, and all of your other intensive workloads. Check out these numbers:

  • Sub-200 microsecond latency
  • Over 11.4M IOPS and 300GB/s throughput in a single cluster
