Storage: NetApp Applies Pressure to Midrange
New Announcements

Network Appliance announced  two new midrange storage systems, the NetAppFAS3020 and FAS3050, in addition to a new serial ATA (SATA) option for primary storage applications. The systems, combined with Data ONTAP 7G software, address three significant customer pain points, the company says—high storage acquisition costs, low storage resource utilization, and increasing storage management costs—with scalable solutions that help today’s enterprise tailor its storage needs to its business and data demands. The new systems also significantly increase NetApp midrange performance.

“We designed our new FAS systems, virtualization engines, and SATA disk option to provide the best value of any midrange storage system in the industry,” said Patrick Rogers, vice president of Products and Partners at Network Appliance. “Our customers tell us that data storage consumes 30% to 50% of their IT infrastructure budgets, and that data growth presents a huge management challenge. We listened and designed the modular and scalable FAS3000 series and the V3000 systems to reduce overall complexity, increase performance, and simplify data management. Additionally, we are achieving an industry milestone by enabling economical, high-density SATA disk drives for primary storage applications—without sacrificing data integrity and safety.”

The FAS3000 series delivers up to twice the price/performance and supports more users per system than previous generation FAS storage systems for greater storage consolidation capability, the company says. As part of the unified NetApp architecture, these midrange systems support file services, FC SAN, IP SAN, and multiple network configurations, while offering scalability to higher performance systems with seamless, painless upgrades without requiring the “forklift” data migration needed by most other offerings currently on the market.

The V3020 and V3050 improve performance by up to two times that of previous generation V-Series systems and improve scalability with four times the capacity and integrated host and storage connectivity. Additionally, the systems allow better manageability with remote power control and call home capability. V-Series systems enable customers to extend the complete suite of groundbreaking dynamic virtualization capabilities delivered in NetApp Data ONTAP 7G software to third-party storage products from HDS, HP, IBM, and Sun. The unique virtualization capabilities of V-Series systems translate directly into customer cost savings and a more intelligent, fluid approach to storage asset utilization that accommodates shifting business demands. In short, the V-Series family offers what NetApp calls “the most comprehensive and sophisticated virtualization engine available.”

Partner company Atempo vice president Stephen Terlizzi said, relative to this announcement, "The NetApp FAS3000 series complements Atempo's Time Navigator for customers seeking high-performance and simplified data management. Atempo and NetApp have a long history of partnering to meet customers' most demanding data protection needs, and we look forward to further collaborating to maximize our solutions' benefits for our customers."
