    N_Port ID virtualization (NPIV)

    N_Port ID virtualization (NPIV) is a technology that allows a single host bus adaptor (HBA) called an "N_Port" to register multiple World Wide Port Names (WWPNs) and N_Port identification numbers.

  • NAND flash memory

    NAND flash memory is a type of non-volatile storage technology that does not require power to retain data.

  • nano-storage

    Nano-storage is a nanotechnology approach to storage that seeks to radically increase storage capacities through a variety of technologies, and, ultimately, to replace current storage media with extremely high-density media and devices.

  • NAS accelerator

    A NAS accelerator (network-attached storage accelerator) is a printed circuit card that offloads TCP/IP processing from a microprocessor.

  • NAS Appliance

    NAS appliances are commodity hardware that includes their own dedicated storage disks and RAID that can easily scale as more capacity is needed.

  • NAS enclosure (network-attached storage enclosure)

    NAS enclosures provide shared storage to all users connected to a network, and vary in models appropriate for home offices to enterprises.

  • NAS filer (network-attached storage filer)

    NAS filers add scalable, expandable storage for file-serving purposes in data sharing, cloud applications, Internet and enterprise networks, in both Fibre Channel SANs and Ethernet LANs.

  • NDMP (Network Data Management Protocol)

    NDMP (Network Data Management Protocol) is an open protocol used to control data backup and recovery communications between primary and secondary storage in a heterogeneous network environment.

  • nearline storage

    Nearline storage is the on-site storage of data on removable media.

  • NetApp Data Fabric

    The products and services that compose NetApp’s Data Fabric are designed to provide customers with the agility they need to quickly and efficiently move data to and from the cloud.

  • network-attached storage (NAS)

    Network-attached storage uses a standard Ethernet connection to provide network nodes with file-based shared storage services.

  • non-disruptive data migration

    Non-disruptive data migration is a feature that allows data movement from one storage device to another without causing downtime in the environment.

  • non-disruptive upgrade (NDU)

    A non-disruptive upgrade (NDU) is an update to software or hardware done without interruption to system service or data access.

  • non-volatile memory (NVM)

    Non-volatile memory (NVMe) is a semiconductor technology that does not require a continuous power supply to retain the data or program code stored in a computing device.

  • nonvolatile storage (NVS)

    Also see our Fast Guide to RAM. Nonvolatile (sometimes written as "non-volatile") storage (NVS) - also known as nonvolatile memory or nonvolatile random access memory (NVRAM) - is a form of static random access memory whose contents are saved when a computer is turned off or loses its external power source.
