ENTERPRISE STORAGE

NETAPP AFF A700s

WINNER: OVERALL

With NetApp's AFF A700s all-flash storage arrays, features include an NVMe fabric-ready clustered architecture that runs the NetApp ONTAP storage operating system. The AFF A700s supports 15-TB SSDs as well as 32-GB Fibre Channel and 40-GB Ethernet connectivity options. Customers can connect the arrays to public clouds including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and IBM Cloud. "NetApp's data fabric story with customers moving to the cloud is very, very powerful. You can have an all-flash solution on-premise, and then have that data moved between clouds," said Michael Thomaschewski, chief technology officer of hybrid infrastructure at Calgary, Alberta-based Long View Systems. "With the [A700s], NetApp just continues to scale their product line."
