NetApp® SolidFire® is a scale-out, all-flash storage platform designed for large-scale infrastructure. SolidFire is unique in its ability to manage storage performance independent of capabilities, and guarantee performance, not just to one application, but to thousands of applications within a single storage platform. These capabilities, combined with a granular scale-out architecture and the ability to automate every aspect of the SolidFire storage platform, empower customers to streamline operations and respond to changing business and application demands faster and more predictably than ever before. The resources on this page are for the most recent release of Element software.
