NetApp AFF (All Flash FAS) Review

With flash, our customers can see lab results much faster and can then send new requests for labs faster. A couple of areas during setup, could be streamlined or made a little more clear.


Valuable Features

  • Clustered Data ONTAP
  • Data recovery
  • Protection
