NetApp FAS Series Review

Its data compression saves a lot of capacity we'd otherwise have to have. It could improve by better integrating with other technologies like VMware, as there are some version conflicts.


Valuable Features

  • Clustered data ONTAP
  • Data compression
  • High Availability
  • Snapshot technology

Improvements to My Organization

It helps us reduce costs because its data compression saves a lot of capacity we'd otherwise have to have.

Room for Improvement

It could improve by better integrating with other technologies like VMware, as there are some version conflicts. When you are using the newest storage virtual console, you cannot use VM Wall, the VM-specific firewall.

Previous Solutions

We used HDS before NetApp and we switched because of the snapshot technology and high-availability function.

Initial Setup

The initial setup was pretty straightforward, the implementation of the system was easy, and we had great support from the NetApp team.

Implementation Team

We used a vendor team who had strong expertise, and we are happy with the implementation. It’s important to have NetApp technicians implement the solution because it is helpful to have some experts.

Other Solutions Considered

No other options were evaluated.
