Protect and govern your MSSQL data

BlueXP helps you understand and protect the data in your MSSQL Server databases, making it easier to align with regulations and ensure applications and databases can rapidly recover from disasters

  • Enhance data governance and privacy by scanning and identifying sensitive and personal data in your MSSQL databases and application file shares
  • Create secure, cost-efficient backups of your SQL Server databases and retain them in highly durable object storage
  • Ensure disaster recovery by replicating databases in ONTAP volumes and LUNs between on-premises ONTAP clusters, FSx for ONTAP, and Cloud Volumes ONTAP

Lower the total cost of ownership

Optimize ONTAP-based storage infrastructure consumption and costs without performance impact on your MSSQL databases and applications

  • Store more data in a smaller storage footprint with thin provisioning and built-in data reduction technologies
  • Tier infrequently-accessed data to object storage for optimal storage utilization and cost reduction
  • Extend your storage optimization with inherently efficient NetApp Snapshot™ copies, cloning, and block-level incremental forever replication
