What is the best solution for an enterprise-level storage environment?



We're planning to offer Storage as a Service (STaaS) to our customers. 

I'm looking for your recommendations on a solution for an enterprise-level storage environment from where we can offer this service. The environment should offer a unified storage environment and should be able to deliver all SAN, NAS, and object storage offerings.

Thanks for your help!

NetApp AFF/FAS (or OEM Lenovo DM series), with no doubt, is the best answer. 

SVM provides total customer isolation; it's able to run FC/iSCSI/NVMe SAN. CIFS/NFS NAS, object S3 from one box. 

It's able to scale up and out. It is possible to combine All-Flash and Hybrid models in one scale-out cluster. Not supported to combine Lenovo and Netapp models in one cluster. 

-Ontap Select for VMware ESX or KVM

-Able to run on all the big 3 cloud hyperscalers.
