NetApp AFF (All Flash FAS) Review

We use it for block storage, because we need a lot performance in all of our systems and databases

How has it helped my organization?

We automate a lot with our NetApp All Flash system.

We use AFF for block storage, because we need a lot performance in all of our systems and databases.

What is most valuable?

  1. Performance
  2. We need Snapshot.

What needs improvement?

We installed NetSender to test it. I think it could be a good solution. It is very small now, but will probably become bigger in the next few months to years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable. We have a network cluster. For two years now, we have not had any issues. It is good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is good. We scaled out three to four months ago. There were no problems.

How is customer service and technical support?

I have used the technical support at times. They are always good.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is pretty expensive compared to other solutions. I would give it a seven or eight out of 10 in price (where 10 is expensive) compared to similar solutions.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before and after we purchased AFF, we viewed NetApp as a vendor of high performance. They are a good vendor.

What other advice do I have?

Until now, I have had no problems with the system. I would recommend this solution.
