Our V3100 series open storage controllers give you advanced data management and storage efficiency capabilities in multiprotocol, multivendor environments.
With our V-Series, you can manage disk arrays from EMC, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Hitachi Data Systems, and other major storage vendors as if they were NetApp storage. You get advanced storage efficiency, data protection, and data management features while maintaining your current multiprotocol, multivendor storage investments.
•You can dramatically increase your disk utilization and reclaim stranded capacity with thin provisioning and deduplication for primary storage, not just secondary storage.
•Use our Snapshot software, the original and most functional point-in-time copy technology, to protect your data with no performance impact and minimal consumption of storage space. Replicate data across your global network at high speeds simply, efficiently, and flexibly with SnapMirror for disaster recovery.
•Accelerate application development and testing by using our FlexClone technology to instantly replicate data volumes and data sets as transparent, virtual copies. NetApp clones can increase productivity and save storage space without compromising performance.
Take advantage of these features whether you use the V-Series to provide file services, to store block-based data, or both. Our V-Series controllers give you this flexibility with native support for FC SAN, FCoE, iSCSI, NFS, and CIFS protocols. The current generation of NetApp disk shelves can also be used with V-Series controllers, giving you more choice and flexibility for capacity expansion.
