NetApp announces special offer for buyers


NetApp on Thursday announced a special offer for buyers of select NetApp all-flash systems, with guaranteed 3X increase in enterprise database performance compared to that of traditional, non-flash disk-based systems.

When customers purchase a NetApp AFF8080 or NetApp EF560 system, the company guarantees that select Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle database applications can achieve 3X more IOPS at one-millisecond latency.

If customers do not see the 3X performance improvement, NetApp will provide them with up to two days of professional optimization services at no cost.

“Speed is now a clear differentiator for businesses of all types. Customers can add NetApp all-flash systems as a low-risk means to dramatically accelerate performance, with payback on their investment in as little as six months,” said Lee Caswell, vice president, Product, Solutions and Services Marketing, NetApp.

“Our 3X Performance Guarantee is appealing to enterprises with competitive systems coming off warranty or those doing data center consolidation to prepare for hybrid cloud.”

The offer is available in the United States and Canada now. NetApp expects the program to be rolled out in APAC, EMEA, and LATAM on November 17. Customers must complete their purchase by April 29, 2016, with implementation performed by NetApp or a NetApp authorized partner.
