Not every data center or source of data is in a static, predictable environment. Think of oil derricks, emergency vehicles, or other mobile, tactical vehicles and aircraft. They are exposed to some of the most difficult environments in terms of thermal conditions and abrupt and unpredictable movement, and they still need the highest levels of performance and reliability. The combination of Vector Data’s specialized systems, designed for extreme environmental requirements such as extended temperature, high shock, and vibration protection, and NetApp® ONTAP® Select software enables customers to deploy enterprise-class solutions in tactical and mobile environments.


By combining ONTAP, the industry’s leading data management platform, with solutions from Vector Data, you can have all the benefits of storage efficiency, data reduction (deduplication, compression, and compaction), and data protection (NetApp Snapshot copies, remote backups, and disaster recovery) with the durability of Vector Data’s hardware.


NetApp and Vector Data have been working together successfully for several decades on customized solutions for extreme environments. They have delivered solutions to companies and public-sector organizations around the globe, enabling access to crucial data and securing uploads of sensitive commercial, industrial, or military data assets.
