NetApp AFF A800
Sunnyvale, Calif.-based NetApp called its new AFF A800 the world's first NVMe end-to-end array. The AFF A800 features a latency of under 200 microseconds, with data transfer of up to 300 Gbytes per second and performance of up to 11.4 million IOPS in a 24-node cluster. It comes ready to attach to high-speed 16-Gbps and 32-Gbps Fibre Channel networks, and is ready for upcoming 100-Gbps Ethernet networks.
The AFF A800 has an enhanced version of NetApp's Active IQ web-based analytics software that provides predictive analytics for technical support based on information from the 3.5 billion data points collected from the field each day. The new version of Active IQ adds predictive analysis of future performance expectations, automatically detects unprotected data volumes, and makes recommendations about what workloads would benefit from all-flash storage.
