NetApp EF-Series All Flash Arrays is useful for the application that required high badwidth , IOP's like Video surveillance, analytics (hadoop), online transaction processing applications, fast data backup and restore. NetApp EF-Series All Flash Arrays is less appropriate for the application that required low/medium IOP's . i.e log collection application server, snapshot collection ... etc.

I have not been able to work with such a great platform in my career experience. Data storage and networking of all databases have been a great achievement of this platform. The user interface is simple and the dashboard shows clear trends in data infrastructure. There are backup storage systems on our cloud servers in case we lose any data. It has an automated update system that keeps our applications up to date.
