NetApp Adds to High End

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- NetApp (NASDAQ:NTAP) today broadened its footprint in the high-end data center market with the introduction of the new FAS6000 and V6000 series solutions. Enhancements to these data center storage systems provide enterprises greater flexibility to support demanding IT environments and massive scalability to consolidate application data and grow it on the fly. The NetApp FAS6000 and V6000 systems help maximize application-level availability and high storage utilization to reduce power, space, and cooling costs. These features, coupled with the NetApp unified storage architecture, offer incredible business value for enterprise customers.

“We listen to our customers and respond with innovation that impacts their businesses,” said Patrick Rogers, vice president of Solutions Marketing at NetApp. “The new FAS6000 and V6000 series further scale our product line to provide the largest and most demanding businesses with the best modular storage solutions available today. NetApp is arming enterprise IT professionals with the necessary tools to exceed their business goals.”

The four new systems announced today include the FAS6040 and FAS6080 and the corresponding V-Series solutions, the V6040 and V6080. The enhanced FAS6000 series of modular storage systems is designed to handle the largest applications and consolidations found in enterprise data centers. In fact, the FAS6080 is the first modular storage system to exceed more than 1PB in storage capacity. The FAS6040 and FAS6080 offer a significant amount of capacity with increased support for up to 1TB disk drives.

Additionally, the V6040 and V6080 enhance the value of third-party storage arrays by adding the data management features of the NetApp Data ONTAP® software family. The longstanding tradition of NetApp unified storage—NAS, SAN, and iSCSI support in a single system—combined with increased capacity performance and provisioning means that enterprise customers can experience reduced space, power, and cooling costs while preserving investments in legacy infrastructure. The unmatched combination of capacity, energy efficiency, and application flexibility provide a compelling solution for IT executives looking to reduce total cost of ownership without sacrificing performance and ease of use.
