SINGAPORE – Media OutReach
– 8 February 2023 – NetApp® (NASDAQ: NTAP), a global, cloud-led, data-centric software company, today announced the availability of NetApp Advance, a new portfolio of storage programs and guarantees to help customers cost-effectively future proof on-premises environments.

With simplified storage ownership and management, NetApp Advance can help to eliminate complex, time-consuming, and costly upgrade cycles while staying current with technology innovations.

New benefits of NetApp Advance include:
- Reducing the cost, complexity, and disruption of tech refreshes by buying once and evolving continuously.
- Greatly reducing the risk previously associated with the journey to hybrid cloud with the flexibility to easily scale out to the cloud if or when business demands it.
Part of NetApp Advance, the new NetApp Storage Lifecycle Program
- No additional cost non-disruptive upgrades to the latest storage controller technology every three, four, or five years
- Option to upgrade controllers at only incremental cost prior to three-year renewal.
- Optional capacity refresh allowing customers to replace lower capacity drives as part of a storage refresh, so customers never have to buy the same capacity twice and can achieve a more efficient & sustainable data center footprint.
- Remotely managed software updates including non-disruptive ONTAP software upgrades packed with new capabilities and enhancements.
- Premier-level support services, with Active IQ and Cloud Insights that enable full-stack visibility and AIOps to streamline observability of the infrastructure beyond the storage layer in a single interface to quickly pinpoint issues and simplify troubleshooting. While ONTAP Essentials provides detailed overviews of ONTAP inventories, workloads, and data protection.
Additionally, the NetApp Storage Lifecycle Program introduces the NetApp Cloud Advantage Program
, which allows organizations to trade in controllers for full credit toward their choice of NetApp cloud solutions to enable easy scale out to the cloud in order to meet changing business demands – and two new guarantees to benefit organizations in need of agile and efficient storage consumption options and models.

NetApp will also introduce a new Sustainability SLA
for NetApp Keystone
customers. Keystone comes standard with 99.999 percent data availability.* Now Keystone will provide a standard Watts/TB for each SLA-based performance level, with service credits available if those targets are not met.

With NetApp BlueXP
, customers will soon have access to a new, industry-first Sustainability Dashboard –
