NetApp FAS Series Valuable Features
Computer System Administrator at a construction company with 10,001+ employees
For us, the greatest aspect of the solution is the fact that it just runs. It is amazingly resilient. That's very important to us, because we are basically, with some exceptions, have a 24/7 operation.
The newer features will be able to do things without interrupting the user experience, such as moving volumes on the fly, as well as adding and removing nodes to the clusters. That general set of features is pretty important to us.View full review »
I like the unified management feature because sometimes you end up running a single protocol on the entire system. Although it has the capacity to do multiple, you have to go the route to enable that. Sometimes it isn't convenient. You rather have a system for a particular protocol and another system for other protocols, especially in a big environment like mine.View full review »

- First of all, I think it is very suitable storage for media.
- When editing and recording at the same time, its performance is quite sufficient.
- The fact that it is redundant for the controller provides sufficient security.
- I can share all volumes as a single space through the FlexGroup structure.
- You can manage departments independently by creating more than one SVM.
- Ontap is a very stable and reliable operating system.
