New innovations in storage technology are changing the game for data centers, and NetApp is working to help customers capitalize on them. The introduction of faster and faster media types and more efficient mechanisms to access those media across well-defined SAN and Ethernet infrastructures will unlock unprecedented speeds, lower latencies, and dramatic improvements in system and application efficiency.
NetApp is helping customers navigate these fast-coming changes
by introducing new storage media and interconnecting technologies in a way that maximizes existing investments. With these and other NetApp innovations
, you will be able to:
- Use NVMe-oF to drive lower CPU overhead in the I/O stack and more efficient protocol interconnectivity to external storage arrays, which translates to significant improvements in the cost and performance of data center infrastructures
- Use NVMe-oF for the device connect as well, allowing for scalable connectivity of storage OS compute to SSDs and ultimately enabling more flexible and powerful cluster architectures
- Use NVMe-attached SCM initially as Flash Cache™ intelligent caching, and ultimately as pooled storage, to accelerate I/O and provide the lowest possible latencies for demanding real-time applications
