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.


What is most valuable?

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.

How has it helped my organization?

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

What needs improvement?

They have issues with deleting big data.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been using it since September.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

We encountered no deployment issues.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's generally stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It scales to our needs.

How are 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.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

It's our first flash storage solution.

How was the initial setup?

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

What other advice do I have?

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