Earlier this year, NetApp unveiled AFF C-Series systems, a remarkable technological advancement that offers near-flash speed at hybrid flash economics. These arrays are tailored for NAS and unified use cases, enabling organizations to enhance their infrastructure affordably. The AFF C-Series has exceeded expectations, providing organizations with a high-quality, low-cost storage solution. By adopting the AFF C-Series, businesses can refresh their existing hybrid flash or 10K hard drive-based storage systems at a similar price point while transitioning to an all-flash environment.
But their commitment to innovation didn't stop there. NetApp expanded their product portfolio by introducing NetApp ASA A-Series systems, extending the NetApp ONTAP experience to all-flash, block-optimized storage systems.
