No matter what business you’re in, your mission-critical applications share a common requirement. They need a highly available, agile storage architecture that can easily scale performance and capacity as your business demands grow and change.
NetApp is excited to announce three new FAS6200 models—and corresponding V-Series models for connecting with third-party storage arrays. These systems are designed to meet escalating data needs for a wide range of critical businesses including service providers, finance companies, and healthcare. Optimized for flash and clustering, the 6200 series delivers the performance, availability, and scale necessary to support the mission-critical, tier 1 applications you depend on to drive your success. You can quickly and cost-effectively react to changing business requirements with the proven agility and storage efficiency that the 6200 delivers.
The three new models, FAS/V6220, FAS/V6250, and FAS/V6290, drive higher performance and value, with 50% to 100% more memory and greater I/O connectivity in the base configuration.
The 6200 series delivers:
- Proven performance with consistently quick response times for both SAN and NAS workloads, as demonstrated by strong results on industry-standard benchmarks.
- The broadest Flash portfolio (Flash Cache, Flash Pool, and Flash Accel), so you can choose the best technology to accelerate your workloads.
- Industry-leading scale to over 65PB of storage, enabling you to grow almost without limits.
Because data availability is increasingly essential for business success, these 6200 systems use clustered Data ONTAP to provide a new level of nondisruptive operations. Updates and routine maintenance can be done without ever interrupting critical applications or busy users. Your IT team is no longer forced to schedule service during off hours. You can incorporate new FAS6200 systems, and new V-Series models in front of third-party arrays, into the cluster without disruption. Plus you can mix FAS/V generations, families, and models in the same cluster, so you can create a storage environment that grows with your business and never requires disruptive upgrades.
The result is an enterprise storage solution that allows you to maintain focus on your business without worrying about IT infrastructure limitations and system management difficulties. The NetApp FAS/V platform, combined with Data ONTAP, enables you to design a storage infrastructure that delivers impact faster, achieves nondisruptive operations, and scales (nearly) without limits.
