NetApp AFF (All Flash FAS) Review

​We use it for automating cloud deployments of SAP applications and products, but it has issues with deleting big data.

Valuable Features

SnapMirror is definitely the most valuable feature for us. It allows us to have a snapshot in minutes and we can use it to restore quickly from a backup.

Also, the speed of AFF is great.

Improvements to My Organization

We use it for automating cloud deployments of SAP applications and products.

Room for Improvement

They have issues with deleting big data.

Use of Solution

We've been using it since September.

Deployment Issues

We encountered no deployment issues.

Stability Issues

It's generally stable.

Scalability Issues

It scales to our needs.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Technical support were helpful, but it took time to find the right person to help me. It started with a service rep in India, and was passed to three people until we found the right person with the correct knowledge. I give them a 7 out of 10.

Previous Solutions

It's our first flash storage solution.

Initial Setup

I wasn't involved, but those who were told me it was easy.

Other Advice

Don’t implement if it's not needed because it’s quite expensive. We need it because of the demanding features.
