NetApp has extended its enterprise storage range with a brace of flagship systems.

Scalable to 500TB, the FAS6030 and FAS6070 are principally aimed at reducing the cost of ownership of high-end fibre channel storage gear. NetApp says its rivals' kit is up to 260 per cent more expensive to own.

They also make the standard claims about flexibility and ease of data management.

CEO Dan Warmenhoven puffed: "Our new offerings position NetApp as a clear leader. We are growing three times faster than the industry average in enterprise application data centres." ®
