How NetApp Unified Data Storage is Powering the AI Era

With powerful unified storage, NetApp is enabling organisations to accelerate AI innovation and unlock the full potential of their data assets

In the era of AI, having the right infrastructure is critical for organisations looking to unlock the full potential of their data. NetApp, a leading provider of intelligent data infrastructure solutions, has unveiled a new generation of unified data storage systems designed to power the most demanding workloads of the AI era, including generative AI, enterprise databases and virtualised environments.

At the heart of NetApp's AI-ready storage portfolio is the newly-announced AFF A-Series, a powerful line of all-flash storage systems that deliver unparalleled performance, reliability and data efficiency. The AFF A-Series also incorporates advanced data management capabilities, such as always-on data reduction, integrated real-time ransomware detection and seamless hybrid cloud integration, empowering organisations to accelerate their AI initiatives while simplifying data management and protecting against emerging cyber threats.

“Data is undeniably the most valuable asset for any company to outpace its competitors. Whether it's mission-critical applications or leveraging enterprise data to fuel AI, the data infrastructure a company chooses to run it on makes all the difference,” said Sandeep Singh, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Enterprise Storage at NetApp. “NetApp's extensive, unified data storage portfolio, from on-premises to the public clouds, makes it the go-to solution for enterprises looking to have the robustness for the most demanding workloads.”

NetApp solutions helping enterprises power their critical data workloads

NetApp's innovative data storage solutions are being leveraged by some of the world's leading technology companies to power their most critical workloads and drive their AI initiatives forward. They natively integrates with the three largest public cloud providers, allowing customers to consolidate workloads, lower cost of data and operate without silos.

T-Systems, a prominent IT service provider, has turned to NetApp's intelligent data infrastructure to support its growing investments in AI projects. 

“As we’ve ramped up our investments in AI projects to help accelerate our business, we needed to grow our data infrastructure to deliver ever greater performance for those workloads,” Christian Klie, Tribe Cluster Lead at T-Systems. “We rely on intelligent data infrastructure delivered by NetApp to power our most critical workloads, and the increased power of the new AFF A-Series systems, paired with their integrated anti-ransomware features and hybrid cloud capabilities, will help position us for success now and in the future.”

Similarly, Intel, a global leader in semiconductor technology, recognises the importance of robust data storage in accelerating enterprise AI adoption. “AI is creating the biggest business transformation opportunity we’ve seen in decades, allowing enterprises to unlock new sources of value from their data,” said Justin Hotard, Executive Vice President and general manager, Data Center and AI Group at Intel. “NetApp AFF A-Series systems utilising Intel Xeon processors provide the performance and features to help businesses accelerate their enterprise AI adoption.”​​​​​​​
