Flexible, allowing us to provide NAS and SAN solutions with the same hardware

What other advice do I have?

We are very happy with this solution as it brings us the scalability and stability of Data Ontap and the versatility of NetApp solutions in order to provide different types of services for our customers' requirements (NAS, CIFS, FC / FCoE). Currently there are new trends in the NetApp world such as AFF and the new version of Data Ontap 9. I think they should be evaluated because they provide a number of very interesting advantages in terms of being able to attack the crude of all the backend discs from a single volume and better response times.
