NetApp Releases its EF560 all-flash array

Introduces new all-flash storage array designed to accelerate high-performance for enterprise-class SAN applications

NetApp has released its EF560 all-flash array with improvements in storage performance to offer the absolute and consistent latency, bandwidth and IOPS critical to enterprise database and analytics applications.
Based on a new Storage Performance Council SPC-1 Result, the all-flash EF560 achieved the leading SPC-1 Price-Performance for all-flash arrays with an average response time of under one millisecond, at $0.54/SPC-1 IOPS.

“New deployments of server platforms, CPUs, operating systems and enterprise applications are driving IT leaders to rebalance their data center infrastructure and storage performance is a key success factor with these upgrades,” said George Kurian, executive vice president of Product Operations at NetApp. “Our new high-performance all-flash EF560 is exactly what enterprises need to serve their customers faster and provide a better overall user experience.”

Additionally, the company introduced the new NetApp E5600 hybrid array which leverages the flash optimizations of the EF560 in hybrid configurations using both solid-state drives and conventional disk drives. The hybrid E5600 storage array delivers increased performance and reliability for more capacity-intensive SAN applications including data warehousing, email and backup.

NetApp EF560 All-Flash Array—Applications that control key business operations such as databases, analytics and OLTP require both absolute performance and consistent response times in order to speed customer response times, deliver actionable results more quickly, and reach decisions faster.

The NetApp EF560 maximizes the value of flash to provide the top SPC-1 Price-Performance value for a storage array with an average response time of under one millisecond, reaching 245,011.76 SPC-1 IOPS with an average response time of 0.93 milliseconds in the SPC-1 Result. The new SPC-1 Result also confirmed that at 50 percent of the specified SPC-1 load level the EF560 delivers an impressive 122,491.97 SPC-1 IOPS at an average response time of 0.34 milliseconds.
