NetApp AFF (All Flash FAS) Review

Having separate storage virtual machines with completely different setups for NFS and Windows solves problems the FAS has


What is our primary use case?

VMware datastores over NFS for DL585 G7 hosts on a 10G switch.

How has it helped my organization?

NetApp FAS was unable to keep up with the I/O. A200 has performed without a problem.

What is most valuable?

Having separate storage virtual machines with completely different setups for NFS and Windows solves problems the FAS has when the domain controllers are unreachable.

What needs improvement?

The system commander web management is good, but it is easy to make bad configurations, and it takes a lot of jumping around to work a single issue.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.
