NetApp storage systems are software- and hardware-based data storage and retrieval systems. These systems can respond to the network requests obtained from clients by either fulfilling them by writing data or retrieving them from disk arrays. The storage system offers you a modular hardware architecture that runs the Write Anywhere File Layout or WAFL software and Data ONTAP, the operating system running all the NetApp storage systems. NetApp storage equipment is highly recommended for enterprises as well as service providers. It is ideal for storing and sharing large volumes of digital data across the hybrid and physical cloud environments. NetApp FAS storage systems consisting of only SSD drives along with installed SSD-optimised ONTAP OS are known as All-Flash FAS (AFF).
