I use NetApp FAS Series for servers. I have a lot of virtual servers connected through it using a Brocade switch.

Our company is based in Myanmar. I'm formerly a system engineer and we are a NetApp service provider company as well.

The NetApp FAS series is unified storage and can be used for the NAS or SAN environments. We had a customer that needed multiple protocols.

We are using NetApp FAS Series on all of your sites. We use it in four major systems for productions in broadcast TV channels. I can say that we use it in Production and Archive environments according to the model and disk structure.

I use NetApp FAS Series for storage consolidation, database management, performance, and data protection. We also use it for unified environments where you run multiple protocols. You can run it through a FAS or an AFF system. Our core applications are running on it, so it's always up.

We are mainly using this solution for file sharing, virtualization, and database storage.

We use the solution for data storage. We are customers of NetApp and I'm the assistant director of our company.

We primarily use the solution for keeping our information reliable. In our case specifically, here at the operations location, we've got a MetroCluster for redundancy.

We are a solution provider and NetApp FAS is one of the infrastructure-related products that we implement for our clients. Our customers' use cases vary, where some of them use it as a backup target and others use it for the general workload. The primary use case is probably for general workload.

We used NetApp FAS for both block and file sharing but we have now switched to another product by HP.

We use this solution as general unified SAN storage for different workloads.

We have deployed a four-node cluster to host multiple services like NFS, CIFS, FCP, and iSCSI with SnapMirror enabled across the cluster.

Used SnapMirror for replication and DR. It's a good case for a storage-based DR. Good results on RPO and RTO.

We use it for storage and it has performed fine, but now we need to upgrade.

The primary use case is for regular databases and file systems. So far it has been good. The performance is solid, it's robust, availability is solid.

The product has been pretty stable. Though we have had a few issues, not on the ones that we are going to replace, but on a couple of other ones. On the ones that we are going to replace, we usually use them for file storage and Exchange. The others are mainly used for interface and iSCSI.

We recently upgraded our NetApp environment from 7-Mode to Clustered ONTAP v9.3. Primary use cases are NFS and CIFS. NFSs are used for VMware data store while the CIFSs are for corporate file sharing.

We use NetApp as our primary storage. Because we are a system integrator, we managed more than 100 data petabytes of data of our customers.
