NetApp expands the NVMe EF-Series
Latest technology to help customers access their data faster
NetApp has announced the NetApp EF600, an end-to-end NVMe midrange storage array designed to accelerate access to data.
Organisations are looking for ways to improve the speed and responsiveness of the applications that control their critical business operations. Because application performance is a key driver of time to market, revenue, and customer satisfaction, it’s crucial that companies operate at the highest levels with maximum efficiency. The end-to-end NVMe EF600 array doubles the performance of currently available all-flash arrays that use the serial-attached SCSI (SAS) protocol. This technology allows organisations to accelerate write IOPS and read/write throughput with an end-to-end NVMe storage system that’s purpose-built for high-performance computing (HPC) workloads.
“Organisations demand high performance and fast access to their data in order to make decisions that positively impact business operations,” said Fadi Kanafani, Middle East managing director & general manager, NetApp. “The EF600 offers customers the ability to unlock the value of their data and rapidly develop insights that were previously unrealistic for performance-sensitive workloads such as Oracle databases, real-time analytics, and high-performance computing applications on top of a BeeGFS high-performance parallel file system.”
The EF600 all-flash array delivers 2 million sustained IOPS, response times under 100 microseconds, and 44GBps of throughput and offers a leading price/performance ratio for enterprise workloads. The modular design and simpler management tools make it easy to scale the EF600 without adding management complexity.
