NetApp FAS Series Pros

GA
CEO at BDPR Technologies Limited
Flexible and reliable storage solution with multiple features such as cloning, replication, and deduplication. Data migration can be done without any performance implications on the production systems.

I like the unified management feature because sometimes you end up running a single protocol on the entire system.

The replication feature is noteworthy because it's faster than most and it uses little bandwidth. Then there's the friendly interface that the equipment offers. With this interface, it is very easy to manage.

GA
CEO at BDPR Technologies Limited
No other area for improvement comes to mind other than its price. Making the price more attractive will help this solution have a bigger market share.

Interfacing with the cloud environment could be better. I want to be able to move some cloud volume and integrate it seamlessly with my home on-premise storage. Sometimes I have issues with port permissions. NetApp probably needs to improve more on the integration side from on-premise to the cloud.

I think this kind of infrastructure is mostly obsolete. To keep up with developments in this space, you need to move all these features to an All-Flash solution.

The NetApp FAS Series is not as high-performing and is not as fast. Its speed needs improvement, but this could only be done if it's an all-flash solution.

Its operating system is very cumbersome. However, after you set it up, it runs pretty smoothly. Its file system is not very dynamic. It is very static.

We are not able to connect to the support of NetApp from Sudan. We have to go through many agents for support, which makes it difficult.

You always need a huge amount of hardware to fulfill a given setup. Its deployment can be complex, especially if you go MetroCluster.
