NetApp ONTAP is a powerful storage-software tool with capabilities such as an intuitive GUI, REST APIs with automation integration, AI-informed predictive analytics and corrective action, non-disruptive hardware upgrades, and cross-storage import.
For more information about the NetApp ONTAP storage system, visit the NetApp ONTAP website.
ONTAP provides the following features:
A unified storage system with simultaneous data access and management of NFS, CIFS, iSCSI, FC, FCoE, and FC-NVMe protocols.
Different deployment models include on-premises on all-flash, hybrid, and all-HDD hardware configurations; VM-based storage platforms on a supported hypervisor such as ONTAP Select; and in the cloud as Cloud Volumes ONTAP.
Increased data storage efficiency on ONTAP systems with support for automatic data tiering, inline data compression, deduplication, and compaction.
Workload-based, QoS-controlled storage.
Seamless integration with a public cloud for tiering and protection of data. ONTAP also provides robust data protection capabilities that sets it apart in any environment:
NetApp Snapshot copies. A fast, point-in-time backup of data using a minimal amount of disk space with no additional performance overhead.
NetApp SnapMirror. Mirrors the Snapshot copies of data from one storage system to another. ONTAP supports mirroring data to other physical platforms and cloud-native services as well.
NetApp SnapLock. Efficiently administration of non-rewritable data by writing it to special volumes that cannot be overwritten or erased for a designated period.
NetApp SnapVault. Backs up data from multiple storage systems to a central Snapshot copy that serves as a backup to all designated systems.
NetApp SyncMirror. Provides real-time, RAID-level mirroring of data to two different plexes of disks that are connected physically to the same controller.
NetApp SnapRestore. Provides fast restoration of backed-up data on demand from Snapshot copies.
NetApp FlexClone. Provides instantaneous provisioning of a fully readable and writeable copy of a NetApp volume based on a Snapshot copy.

|NetApp ONTAP is available on-premises, virtualized, or in the cloud.|
NetApp provides robust all-flash (AFF) and scale-out hybrid (FAS) storage platforms that are tailor-made with low-latency performance, integrated data protection, and multi-protocol support.
Both systems are powered by NetApp ONTAP data management software, the industry’s most advanced data-management software for highly-available, cloud-integrated, simplified storage management to deliver enterprise-class speed, efficiency, and security your data fabric needs.
