NetApp HCI is the first enterprise-scale hyper converged infrastructure solution. It delivers cloud-like infrastructure (consumption of compute, storage, and networking resources) in an agile, scalable, easy-to-manage four-node building block. It is designed around the foundation of SolidFire all-flash storage to deliver guaranteed application performance with mature integrated replication, efficiency, data protection, and high availability services.
|Applicable Verticals||Cloud Service Providers, Financials, Government & Education and Healthcare|
|Proprietary HW Platform||Yes|
|Primary Use Cases||General VM Clusters, IaaS for private or public clouds (leverage shared images) and VDI (Virtual Desktop with common images)|
NetApp HCI is the first enterprise-scale hyper converged infrastructure solution, delivering cloud-like infrastructure, including consumption of compute, storage and networking resources, in an agile and scalable solution. Designed on SolidFire all-flash storage, this solution ensures application performance and mature integrated replication, efficiency, data protection and high availability services. HCI consolidates workloads at scale and simplifies centralized operations.
HCI is available in mix-and-match small, media and large storage configurations from 5.5TB to 44TB. Minimum configuration is 4 storage nodes, 2 compute nodes and 2 open bays for expansion notes.

|Licensing and Pricing Details||
The NetApp HCI platform scales by adding compute or storage nodes to the environment. Each compute or storage node is available in three sizes: small, medium or large. The initial NetApp HCI configuration consists of two compute nodes and four storage nodes. At installation, each NetApp HCI platform will install VMware vCenter, which can be installed with a 60-day vCenter trial license, or can be installed using an existing license provided by the customer.
NetApp HCI is architected on SolidFire Element OS and VMware vSphere, and is fully managed by VMware vCenter. This direct integration with vCenter allows enterprises to easily automate and manage day-to-day tasks, including hardware-level operations and alerts, from Day 1 to Day 1500 and beyond.
