NetApp delivers faster and more efficient solutions for analytics and HPC applications

Beijing, China, October 23, 2019 – NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP), the authority on hybrid cloud data management, today announced the launch of the NetApp® EF600 storage array. The EF600 All-Flash Array is an end-to-end NVMe midrange array that accelerates data access and enables businesses to quickly gain new insights into performance-sensitive workloads.

Businesses are looking for ways to improve the speed and responsiveness of the applications that control critical business operations. Because application performance is a key driver of speed-to-market, revenue generation, and customer satisfaction, it’s critical that businesses operate at the highest level with maximum efficiency. The end-to-end NVMe EF600 all-flash array doubles the performance of current all-flash arrays using the Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) protocol. That’s why NetApp is a leader in the era of enterprises transitioning to flash storage. This technology enables enterprises to accelerate write IOPS and increase read/write throughput with end-to-end NVMe storage systems built for high-performance computing (HPC) workloads.

Tim Stammers, senior analyst at 451 Research, said: “The storage industry is currently transitioning from the SAS protocol to the NVMe protocol, which has dramatically increased data access speeds. However, traditional storage systems’ main controllers create latency, so They cannot take full advantage of the performance of NVMe. NetApp E-Series systems are designed to address this architectural issue and are already widely used in performance-sensitive applications. The EF600 all-flash array introduces end-to-end support for NVMe, bringing E-Series The series takes performance to a whole new level. This product is ideal for IT organizations looking to leverage high-speed storage to serve data for analytics and other data-intensive applications.”

“NetApp has been a leader in support of Mellanox’s NVMe-oF network controllers in its EF-Series and E-Series arrays, including the NVMe/ IB and NVMe/RoCE support. We look forward to continuing our innovative partnership with NetApp to accelerate the industry’s transition to NVMe-oF.”

Robin Huber, vice president and general manager of NetApp’s E-Series division, said: “Fast and reliable access to value and insight from a range of mixed workload environments can help businesses differentiate themselves from the competition and accelerate their time-to-market. The EF600 all-flash array helps Customers unlock the value of their data and gain insights quickly; previously, gaining insights from performance-sensitive workloads such as Oracle databases, real-time analytics, and HPC applications running on top of the BeeGFS high-performance parallel file system unattainable.”

The EF600 all-flash array delivers 2 million sustained IOPS with a response time of less than 100 microseconds and a throughput of 44 GBps, leading the price/performance for enterprise workloads. Trusted simplicity, modular design and simple management tools allow businesses to easily scale EF600 all-flash arrays without adding management complexity.

Lenovo Lingtuo was jointly established in China by Lenovo, a global technology leader in promoting intelligent transformation, and NetApp, an authoritative enterprise in the field of global hybrid cloud data management. By implementing a dual-brand strategy, Lenovo Lingtuo provides companies in China with a full line of products and solutions under the NetApp brand and an OEM product portfolio under the Lenovo brand. The products and solutions released this time will be provided to Chinese customers through Lenovo Lingtuo.
