NetApp AFF (All Flash FAS) Review

We have seen a speed improvement, and our applications are a lot faster

What is most valuable?

  • The Flash component for performance
  • The management
  • The features that ONTAP now has with the availability to work with the cloud.

How has it helped my organization?

We have seen a speed improvement, and our applications are a lot faster.

What needs improvement?

Probably on the management side of things. It is very complex.

For how long have I used the solution?

Probably six months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Not really.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is pretty scalable.

How is customer service and technical support?

Tech support is very good, so give it an eight out of 10.

Which solutions did we use previously?

It was an older system. It was a disc based system. So, we were looking for performance improvement.

It was a natural progression from the previous system, so it was just more of an upgrade rather than a new system.

How was the initial setup?

It was reasonably straightforward. We received a lot of knowledge on the net about ONTAP systems, so the setup has improved.

What other advice do I have?

The NetApp ONTAP system is a very good system to work with and use. Very versatile and once you know how things work in the NetApp world, then it makes it very easy to keep the systems for a long time, to work with them, and they work very well.

It is a brand new system, and it works extremely well. Performance improvements are as expected.
