There’s a new kid on the cloud infrastructure block…

 

Meet the H610S, a brand-new NetApp storage expansion node with unparalleled flexibility and agility for cloud infrastructures, powered by NetApp® Element® software.

H610S

Don’t let her sleek look distract you—she has the smarts, too. This node is 22% more dense than our SF-Series storage nodes. With 12 NVMe solid-state drives (SSDs) per node and 25GbE connectivity, it is ready to meet your performance and capacity needs of today and tomorrow.

 

The H610S is more like the ninja next door with a thorough set of capabilities for building and scaling your environments. But, like any ninja, its core strength lies not in its list of features, but its agile deployment—its seamlessly adapts to the needs of its environment.

 

The H610S is agile enough to be added to either your NetApp HCI deployment as a storage expansion option or to your existing NetApp SolidFire® cluster—without any downtime. It allows flexible scaling to deliver against a growing set of diverse needs, whether you are consolidating an increasing number of workloads onto a single system or expanding and building a private cloud .

 

In addition to flexible scale sized to your business needs, its secret weapon is the quality of service (QoS) capabilities. Never worry about noisy neighbors with the ninja in your environment. Consistently provide performance to every application, even as your environment shifts and requirements change. Additionally, because the H610S is powered by Element software, its automation integrations mean less manual management for your large-scale environment, more self-service for your end users, and more time to innovate.

 

Test it out for yourself. Get familiar with the scalability, predictability, and automation capabilities of Element software through the Element demo node. Element enables your NetApp HCI and SolidFire infrastructures to grow and thrive, regardless of the unpredictability of your business demands. Because Element software is a part of the NetApp Data Fabric, your data remains as flexible as your infrastructure.

 

Build an architecture you trust, with the ease of deployment you crave. Watch how you can get a SolidFire cluster built on H610S nodes up and running quickly:
