NetApp AFF (All Flash FAS) Review

Gives us high performance, improvement in IOPS, reduced latency, and it's easy to manage

What is most valuable?

  • High performance
  • Good improvement in IOPS
  • Less latency
  • Easy to manage

How has it helped my organization?

Functionally it did improve our company. It improved internal customer performance.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability wise, it is also good, although we have not had to scale yet.

How are customer service and technical support?

It is good. I rate it nine out of 10.

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

We have other storage as well but we have been using NetApp for a long time.

We have a weekly call with the NetApp representative, we have been getting that from them. From them we understood that we needed to get a new solution.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

EMC. We chose NetApp over EMC because support is good.

What other advice do I have?

Our primary use case is databases using NAS file storage. Our impression of NetApp as a vendor of high performance SAN storage before the purchase was that it's good. Now that we have it, we still think it's good. We are more likely to consider NetApp for mission critical storage systems because of the improvement in the performance.

In terms of selecting a vendor, in the case of PoC, we look for more support and faster responses.

I would advise a colleague researching similar products that this is the preferred solution.
