In today’s data-driven world, where everything is connected and businesses operate in real time, instant access to data and analytics is critical. Yet disconnected infrastructure and aging storage systems keep many organizations from focusing efforts on innovation and moving the business forward. IT is left to struggle with performance that can’t keep up with modern applications, lengthy test and development cycles due to long resource provisioning time, and exponential cost increases from data center systems that consume vast amounts of space, power, and cooling, as well as substantial management and maintenance resources.

NetApp is built for enterprise applications

With our industry-leading solutions that support hybrid multicloud capabilities, NetApp has become the go-to partner of enterprises looking to modernize their infrastructures and get maximum value from their SAPOracle, and SQL Server databases. Our cloud-connected all-flash systems are designed to help your organization accelerate its digital transformation and fuel data-driven strategies. Powered by NetApp® ONTAP® data management softwareNetApp enterprise application solutions deliver the industry’s highest performance and resilience, superior flexibility, best-in-class data services, and tight integration with the world’s leading clouds: AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud.

Accelerate projects and workflows

Modernizing your environment with all-flash systems from NetApp can help you deliver projects up to 8 times faster than disk-based solutions. NetApp AFF storage systems accelerate your projects with the fastest unified scale-out all-flash array, delivering up to 7 million IOPS and latency of less than a millisecond.

Keep your business running

Resilience is key to winning the race against your competitors. With NetApp solutions for enterprise applications, you can keep your business running by making sure that you have the performance and data protection your business requires. You’ll gain peace of mind knowing that your data is safe and accessible only by authorized users. And you can rest assured knowing you’re protected against unplanned outages and data loss, so your data is always available whenever and wherever it’s needed.

Simplify operations

Enterprise application solutions built on NetApp all-flash storage systems streamline operations with up to 90% savings in time and effort compared to traditional solutions. NetApp solutions offer proven value with fewer components, greater return on investment, and lower total cost of ownership. With the most options for private, public, and hybrid cloud deployments, NetApp solutions allow you to put your enterprise application data wherever it makes the most sense. As business needs change, you can easily and nondisruptively move your data between cloud and on-premises environments. And ONTAP software efficiencies simplify management and data protection across your entire landscape—in the data center and cloud.

With Azure NetApp Files, you can hot-resize the volume to match size and performance needs, perform instant snapshots or volume clones, and change the volume tier dynamically, without service interruption, interactively or by automation.

NetApp tools make it easy to understand consumption and costs, so you can optimize your storage infrastructure and keep and store your data where it’s most effective. With policy-based quality-of-service (QoS), databases get the performance they need. QoS also helps reduce costs by allowing you to safely consolidate workloads onto a single system so that you can run production and development side by side on the same system. And multiple storage efficiency technologies allow you to place more data in a smaller footprint. 

Move to the cloud at your own pace

NetApp supports enterprise applications on your premises and in the world’s leading clouds: AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud. We offer the largest range of options so you can adopt the cloud at the pace that works for your business. Your data fabric unifies data management across cloud and on-premises resources, enabling you to run your data and applications in the environment that best suits your business requirements. And our flexible cloud options allow you to move data and applications from your premises to the cloud of your choosing (or between different clouds) and back again as business need dictate.

Deliver a consistent customer experience

In today’s always-on world, customers expect to access data when and where they need it. Many organizations, however, are reluctant to move their business-critical applications to the cloud because they can’t afford unpredictable performance. With NetApp, your enterprise application environment will run in the cloud at peak performance and availability with consistent 250K IOPS and millisecond latency.
