New Update


Network Appliance has unveiled two new midrange storage systems-the FAS3020

and FAS3050-plus a new serial ATA (SATA) option for primary storage

applications. Concurr-ently, NetApp debuted two new V-Series virtualization

engines-the V3020 and V3050.

These new solutions, com-bined with Data ONTAP 7G software, address three

sig-nificant customer pain points-high storage acquisition costs, low storage

resource utilizat-ion and increasing storage management costs. This is with

solutions that help today's enterprise tailor its storage needs to its

business and data demands. 

As part of the unified Net-App architecture, these mid-range systems support

file ser-vices, FC SAN, IP SAN, and mul-tiple network configurations. With

storage capacity up to 84TB and 336 disks, the FAS3000 series brings high-end

capabilities with a midrange price tag. Additionally, FAS3000 systems offer the

FlexVol capabilities built into Data ONTAP 7G, which imp-roves disk performance

even for small data volumes. FlexVol technology can also increase customers'

storage utilization by up to 50 percent. 

V-Series systems enable customers to extend the com-plete suite of dynamic

virtuali-zation capabilities delivered in Data ONTAP 7G software to third-party

storage products from HDS, HP, IBM, and Sun. NetApp solutions are comple-mented

by ConsultingEdge and SupportEdge services available from NetApp Global Services

(NGS). FAS3020 and FAS3050 systems are available immediately.
