NetApp today announced NetApp ONTAP 9.6, the new midrange, end-to-end NVMe AFF A320 storage system and an expanded portfolio of services for Data-Driven Organizations.
NetApp’s cloud-connected flash solutions add unprecedented performance and power the most demanding data sets and technologies, such as artificial intelligence or 5G networks.
Eric Burgener, research vice president, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group, IDC, said, “As enterprises evolve to new, more data-centric business models where data is a key strategic resource, data availability requirements are on the rise.”
Eric Burgener, added, “NetApp’s cloud-connected flash solutions, coupled with their Data Fabric strategy, provides the performance, availability, agility and simplicity enterprises undergoing digital transformation need in their hybrid cloud infrastructure to create and leverage innovative business opportunities.”
Joel Reich, executive vice president, Storage Systems and Software, NetApp, said, “In advances that are coming our way, like 5G networks, we can see that a company’s ability to generate, gather and disseminate a massive volume of data will be enabled like never before and companies that aren’t ready are going to be overwhelmed.”
