NetApp EF-Series All Flash Arrays Scalability

Alberto Alberti
Senior System Engineer at ICTeam
I think the scalability of the solution is really good. We can scale with the space, but not with the computation capabilities or with the controllers. I believe the reason for this is that it is an old style storage system. There are some new products on the market that are more agile and more scalable. I am not sure how many users our customer has, but I think it is about 100 users. The scalability would depend on the kind of VM system they're working on. View full review »

In terms of scalability, it's okay. But they do have one problem with scalability - they cannot do federation of storage. View full review »

The EF-Series is not the most scalable solution. However, I think it is a good compromise considering the features and the caliber of the solution for this type of model and how we use it. View full review »

I am not very familiar with how well it scales. Ever since I started it's been the same so we haven't really grown into it. View full review »
