NetApp FAS Series Valuable Features

One of the most valuable features offered is double-parity RAID, which guarantees that your data will stay intact. You can experience two disk failures and still be up. Another feature is the deduplication. It saves a lot of space. We're also able to provision storage and monitor which ones are really consuming storage. View full review »

It is good to have a unified storage where you can have block and file level protocols. It has been pretty stable, but the capacity requirements have changed overtime. Our utilization has been very high, so the performance has taken a hit, which is why we are replacing it. View full review »

* Flexibility. * Saves space with deduplication. * All protocols on the same box. This means that you don't need to have a appliance to export. For example, an NFS volume on CIFs volume. * Easy integration to some cloud environments, like Amazon AWS. * Deduplication, now on cluster mode, runs on aggregate and no more on volume only. This means that you must put all their VMware environments on the same aggregate. If you have volume from prod, dev, and homolog that shares the same virtual machine, you will have a big gain on space saving. View full review »
