NetApp All Flash FAS

It is very well suited for any organization who is trying to host network drives as it supports CIFS protocol and is very good at it. We looked into multiple products including SMB with other flash storage platforms and still went back to Netapp because it does CIFS really well. Any organization who is trying to host VDI on flash will benefit from the use of NetApp All Flash FAS as we did. Our users immediately noticed a difference in performance of their VDI bootup times and overall experience. From the admin's point of view, they noticed server reboot times to be a few seconds. Overall, this array provides a lot of IOPS, does data compression and reduction really well and is worth the investment.

Reduxio

Reduxio fit into our plans for replacing our aging EMC VNX5500. We were able to reduce our data center footprint from 50 rack units down to 8. The data dedupe or "No-Dupe" as they call it was the main reason for the reduced footprint. We also use VSphere and the API's that tie into VCenter work very well. Your able to carve out storage right from the VCenter web client. Reduxio may be less appropriate when used as a backup repository.

Pros

  • Supports CIFS, NFS, ISCSI and FC protocols. Not all flash products out in the market today support all protocols and this makes it harder for small - mid scale organizations who cannot afford multiple million dollar storage platforms.
  • Handles workloads really well. We have VDI, SQL DB, Production workloads running on it all at the same time and the array doesn't choke on latency or IOPS.
  • CDOT has come a long way and with the newer versions of CDOT, the data reduction and compression makes way for a lot more usable storage than what you pay for in RAW.

  • The user interface of Reduxio is very intuitive.
  • The data deduplication rate is very good.
  • Performance of the Reduxio storage is very good. Have not seen any latency issues in over a year.
  • Reduxio support is outstanding. Their team is very responsive!

Cons

  • As always, Netapp upgrades are really painful. I wish there was an easy way of upgrading Netapp.
  • GUI is hard to use and CLI is even worse. GUI is confusing and you click all over the place before you get over the learning curve. CLI has changed from the 7-mode days and is very confusing to use. I have had scenarios where the support themselves use documentation to put in the proper commands.
  • Like any array, Netapp's CDOT has it's own bugs in the software. We learnt the hard way when one of our nodes went down and a bug prevented take over of SCSI services which resulted in an APD situation on all our ESXI hosts. Was a nightmare rebooting all the VM's and ESXI's to relieve them of the APD's. People don't pay millions towards a storage platform to go through nightmares.

  • Some best practice documentation available online would be nice, however their support is available to answer any questions.
  • The available amount of physical storage remaining is sort of ambiguous.
  • The marketing of No-Dup is really not a great idea.

Alternatives Considered

We looked at Pure, Nimble, XtremIO and NetApp. Although all the arrays did really well, the ability to support all protocols sets NetApp apart. Each vendor had its own pluses and minuses and we bought the array that best suited our business needs and budget.

The Reduxio storage is much simpler to setup and configure. With Nutanix you need to configure each node and then add them to the hyper converged cluster prior to use. With Reduxio all you need to do is set up a few network interfaces for the management and storage processors and then your good! Reduxio is less than half the price of Nutanix as well

Return on Investment

  • ROI has been tremendous as it has come in handy in all the scenarios we were looking at
  • Users and admins both happy with the overall performance and management is happy that they got a good deal from reseller.

  • One positive impact is the amount of electricity we're saving over the VNX5500
  • The Reduxio is much simpler to manage allowing less training time.
  • The simplicity of the UI will allow us to hire people that may not have as much experience with enterprise storage.
