NetApp FAS Series Review

It saves a lot of time and minimizes downtime, which is important because we're a hospital and we can’t afford much downtime. I'd like more automation of the expanding aggregates and discs.


Valuable Features

  • Snapshots
  • Mobility of data
  • High Availability

Improvements to My Organization

It saves a lot of time and minimizes downtime, which is important because we're a hospital and we can’t afford much downtime. If they can stop all downtime, it would be a big benefit for us and our patients.

Room for Improvement

I have a very small feature request: more automation of the expanding aggregates and discs.

Deployment Issues

We've had no issues with deploying it.

Stability Issues

The stability is very good.

Scalability Issues

We have six PB of data, and have had no problems with scalability.

Customer Service and Technical Support

The technical support is good.

Previous Solutions

We have had NetApp for a long time, and were one of the first customers in Belgium.

Initial Setup

If you are new, you have to learn the system, but once you know how it works, it doesn’t take much time to expand or install a new system. It was not difficult at all to learn the first time.

Other Advice

Over the past few years, they have evolved a lot in manageability and automation, so we are happy with the direction they are going in. They haven’t lost their eye on stability as well. Lots of new features without sacrificing anything.
