Overview
NetApp FAS Series offers powerful, affordable, flexible data storage for midsized businesses and distributed enterprises. NetApp FAS Series, named a 'Champion' and 'Best in Overall Value' by Info-Tech Research Group, is affordable, and is a more powerful storage platform than other systems in its class.

Sonexion system’s modular, pre-integrated and compact design keeps costs low while delivering the right performance for analytics, compute clusters and supercomputers of all types. Performance and capacity scale efficiently in modular building blocks, reducing the number of hard disk drives needed to achieve sustained performance at scale. Performance is optimized end to end, from the compute clients to the network to the storage subsystem, based on the application workload.

Data protection is provided through Grid RAID, a declustered parity form of data protection that speeds up rebuild times three and a half times over traditional RAID, while maintaining Lustre performance.
