Transform your data into actionable business insights. Fast. The industry’s first end-to-end NVMe unified all-flash system is ready when you are.

The AFF A800 array delivers ultra-low latency of below 200 microsecond and massive throughput of 300 GB/s powered by a combination of NVMe SSDs and NVMe/FC connectivity. Plus the most cloud-integration choices for your artificial-intelligence workflow.

Run your apps with unprecedented speed and scale to wring maximum value from your data: AFF A800.

Modernize your SAN: Newest NVMe-oF technology. Most data-center–efficient flash.

Increase your workload performance by 60%. Cut your application response time by half—with a simple software upgrade to NVMe over Fibre Channel (NVMe/FC) host connectivity1 Without disruption.

Dramatically reduce your data-center footprint and cost. Running ONTAP, award-winning AFF A-Series systems deliver leading density with the industry’s first support of 30TB SSDs.

1. Available for select AFF A-Series models.

Save big—guaranteed—with NetApp efficiency technologies.

Watch your storage costs shrink: Our leading storage-efficiency technologies, native to each AFF system, deliver an unparalleled 22:1 overall data-reduction ratio2On premises or in the cloud.

NetApp AFF customers have saved nearly 6EB in total capacity. Now it’s your turn.

We guarantee your savings with the NetApp Efficiency Guarantee: predictable, effective capacity for specific workloads to ensure a smooth transition to all flash.

And take advantage of the industry’s most flexible rewards program, NetApp NextCredit, toward building your Data Fabric.

2. Including storage efficiencies from snapshots.
