We live in a data and cloud centric world so NetApp has built a broad portfolio optimised for today’s IT needs by providing the following solutions:
- All-flash, hybrid flash and all disk storage
- Cloud integrated storage
- Cloud Object storage
- Cloud Data Services
- Converged Infrastructure
- Hyper-Converged Infrastructure
- Data protection and governance
Don’t just take our word for it, see how Gartner positions NetApp as the leading storage vendor:
Gartner Magic Quadrants for General-Purpose Disk Arrays and Solid-State Arrays
So if you have a need for IOPS (i.e. all-flash) or throughput/capacity (i.e. backup, archive or video surveillance) optimised storage then NetApp needs to be on your shortlist, as their combination of innovation, breadth of portfolio and value proposition is second to none.
In addition the NetApp portfolio now incorporates technologies from Commvault and Fujitsu so you can purchase industry leading storage, data protection and governance software and servers from a single vendor.
Performing backups and restores of on-premises VMs and physical servers is “table stakes” today and there are many products that can do it well. Modern data management solutions need to do so much more – they must support SaaS applications such as Office 365 and Salesforce along with advanced data governance capabilities so that organisations know what data they have and where it resides. The key features of Commvault are:
- Analyse and report on file, e-mail and SharePoint data
- Classify the data (i.e. based on type, location, metadata and tags)
- Based on the classification use policies to manage the lifecycle of the data (i.e. backup, archive and deletion)
- Search and eDiscovery for investigative purposes
- For GDPR identify risks associated with sensitive data and process end-user access requests
- Do all the above for data that is on-premises, on laptops and in the cloud
Commvault is the market leader in hybrid cloud data protection and governance solutions and is therefore well placed to deliver what the market needs, best of all the technology is now directly available from NetApp and is optimised to work with their complete range of storage platforms.
Fujitsu provides a broad range of Intel based rack servers, including ultra-space efficient 2U4N devices that are replacing blade servers due to their greater density, simplicity and lower cost.
Industry performance benchmarks (such as VMware’s VMmark and SPECint) consistently put Fujitsu ahead of comparable servers from HPE and Dell EMC, and the same goes for reliability with Fujitsu always top of the pack – Fujitsu’s Reliability Promise provides the unique benefit that in the unlikely event a server fails within the first year a full refund will be provided. Tight integration with VMware has been a focus for many years – free plug-ins for vCenter and vRealize Operations Manager enable complete server lifecycle management from the tools that you use today.
Fujitsu and NetApp have been partners for over 20 years and Fujitsu engineers provide the support for NetApp storage in EMEA ensuring that PRIMERGY is the ideal server platform to use with NetApp storage. In 2017 the two companies launched NFLEX, a Converged Infrastructure solution built using Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers and NetApp FAS/AFF storage.
NFLEX provides simplified procurement, deployment and support using a single point of contact which helps to increase your uptime and productivity.
