NetApp AFF C190 All-Flash Storage Array
This week NetApp released the AFF C190 all flash storage array. Targeted at the needs of SMBs, the AFF C190 is designed to be a partner-led offering that enables NetApp to be more competitive down market where their exisiting storage arrays for the midmarket, like the A200 and A300, are simply too much. The NetApp AFF C190 runs on NetApp ONTAP software, meaning smaller organizations will have access to enterprise-class data services, hybrid cloud support, and data reduction technologies, which provides critical value for all-flash arrays.
The C190 is meant for IT generalists, so it's easy to set up in just a few minutes. A wizard-driven interface has built-in workflows for Oracle, Microsoft SQL, MySQL, MongoDB, VMware, and other popular business applications, making storage provisioning simple. Like the NetApp A-Series systems, the C190 offers support for block and file within the same storage system. With the C190, cloud connectivity is a key component, organizations can automatically tier cold data or back up to the cloud to reduce overall storage infrastructure costs. The AFF C190 storage array supports all major public clouds including; Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud, and Alibaba Cloud.
