Industry’s First and Only NVMe—Inside and Out
NVMe inside the system is only half the story. AFF also offers support for NVMe over Fabrics to deliver up to 60% more IOPS and cut latency by half.
Leading Performance Driven by Innovation
Best-in-class performance as proven by SPC-1 benchmark testing gets even better, delivering around 10µs latency when used in combination with SCM-based MAX Data software.
Unmatched Data Management
AFF features native multiprotocol support, non-disruptive scalability to 24 nodes, and seamless tiering to the cloud.
Most Cloud-Connected Flash
AFF is designed for the cloud era to connect to more clouds, in more ways, and to more cloud data services.
Superior Data-Center Efficiency
Dramatically reduce data-center costs by cutting power by up to 15x and shrinking storage footprint by as much as 37x.
Optimize your storage with AI-based, predictive analytics delivered by NetApp Active IQ.
Most Comprehensive Data Protection—Simply Built In
Meet the strictest SLAs with a full suite of integrated and application-consistent data protection and compliance solutions.
Seamless Cloud-Integrated Backup
