The NetApp® ONTAP® Select software-defined scalable storage software architecture can be deployed on your choice of commodity servers, and disk media (HDD or SSD). Designed to complement NetApp All Flash FAS (AFF), FAS, and ONTAP Cloud storage solutions, ONTAP Select lets you spin up storage resources with cloud-like agility in the comfort of your own data center.
ONTAP Select converts the server’s internal disk drives into a flexible storage architecture—delivering many of the same benefits as a dedicated NetApp storage system.
Take advantage of efficient data reduction technologies, including embedded data deduplication and compression, along with space-efficient FlexClone® and Snapshot® features. Built-in data protection, using our SnapVault® and SnapMirror® software, provides backup and recovery and disaster recovery (DR) to any ONTAP based storage system—across the hybrid cloud.
NetApp SnapRestore® software, available separately, uses local Snapshot copies to recover entire file systems or data volumes in seconds, regardless of capacity or number of files.
Leverage your NetApp investment using ONTAP Select to bring all your operations into an integrated data storage architecture for seamless interoperability between systems. Review the ONTAP Select datasheet to learn more.
