All Flash For All! – NetApp AFF C190
Despite these associated advantages, the biggest challenge for many businesses when assessing All Flash arrays has been the cost consideration, with solutions only available with functionality and a price point that placed them firmly in the enterprise space and out of reach for many IT budgets.
The NetApp AFF C190 is here as the answer to these challenges.
The C190 is a simple, smart, and secure enterprise class flash system – available at a price which opens the accessibility of this technology for more organisations than ever before.
The C190 is available in configurations of 8x, 12x, 18x and 24x 960GB SSD configurations, with respective effective capacities of 13TB (8x), 24TB, (12x), 40TB (18x) and 55TB (24x).
NetApp are so confident in the performance of their all flash arrays that all configurations come with a 3:1 efficiency guarantee in writing, which means that you can be safe in the knowledge that if you don’t see these levels effective within 180 days of implementation, NetApp will make up the difference free of charge.
No fluff. No sizing. No fine print.
- Intel Broadwell DE CPU architecture
- High-speed DDR4 2133 memory

By utilising the technology, you will be able to bring benefits to your environment to:
- Accelerate applications by 10x with comparable £/GB to SAS 10K HDD
- Simplify your transition to a hybrid cloud environment
- Use one set of tools to manage and protect your data
- Run hot data at super-fast speed on premise, whilst moving cold data to the public cloud easily with OnTap and FabricPool
What about my plans for cloud?
NetApp flash arrays are the most cloud connected, simplifying operations with industry leading cloud integration that allows you to connect to more clouds, in more ways and to more services. Keep only hot data on your AFF C190 flash system with automatic tiering of cloud data, reducing primary flash storage needs by as much as 50%. Take advantage of data migration for backup, DR, tiering, cloud analytics and workload bursting, and use OnTap software to move it to the cloud of your choice.
To make this cloud tiering even easier, with every purchase of a C190 your first year’s 10TB FabricPool license for cloud tiering will be provided at no cost – extending the storage capability of your solution even further and accelerating your hybrid storage strategy!
