Support high-IOPS mixed workloads and databases, high-performance file systems, and bandwidth-intensive streaming applications via the E5500. NetApp patent-pending Dynamic Disk Pools (DDP), a SANtricity® feature, simplifies traditional RAID management by distributing data parity information and spare capacity across a pool of drives.

The modular flexibility of the E-Series—with three disk drive/controller shelves, multiple drive types, and a complete selection of interfaces—lets you optimize and scale custom configurations as needed. Use the maximum storage density of the E5500 to reduce rack space by up to 60%, power use by up to 40%, and cooling requirements by up to 39%.

Backed by NetApp's 20+ years of storage-development experience, the E5500 provides a field-proven architecture with high reliability and 99.999% availability.
