Disk Shelves and Storage Media Overview
NetApp disk shelves and storage media provide flexibility, reliability, and cross-platform leverage, plus storage efficiency.
NetApp offers a range of storage media, from high-capacity to high-performing disk drives, plus self-encrypting drives and extreme performance options using solid state technology.
While most vendors of networked storage are still transitioning SAS drives into their product lines, the DS4486 disk shelf marks our fourth-generation SAS product offering.
We are also a leader in using flash technology to optimize storage costs and performance. The NetApp® Virtual Storage Tier promotes “hot” data to flash media in real time and leaves the original copy on disk. This approach improves performance while reducing costs by using fewer, larger disk drives.
Our family of disk shelves delivers:
- Enterprise-class resiliency and availability
- Flexibility to use across FAS and V-Series storage systems
- Nondisruptive controller upgrades, protecting your investment
- Industry-leading storage efficiency with the NetApp Data ONTAP® operating system
