NetApp is a proven leader when it comes to modernising and simplifying your storage environment. From simple, smart, trusted storage for shared NAS and SAN environments to arrays built for dedicated, high-bandwidth applications such as data analytics and disk-based backup - so when your organisation is ready to grow, Scan IT can provide these latest data management technologies and solutions.
NetApp EF-series Arrays
Big data analytics, High Performance Computing, demanding databases. NetApp EF-Series all-flash arrays are built for today’s giant workloads - and the even bigger ones to come. They are powered by NetApp SANtricity software to give you extensive configuration flexibility, custom performance tuning, and complete control over data placement.
The EF-Series is a family of entry-level and mid-range all-flash storage arrays that can accelerate access to your data and help you derive value from it faster. These systems offer both SAS and NVMe flash storage and provide you with affordable to extreme IOPS, response times under 100 microseconds, and bandwidth up to 44GBps, making them ideal for mixed workloads and demanding applications such as analytics and high performance computing (HPC).
