NetApp FAS series

NetApp FAS is a great platform to solve a large variety of different problems. It is ideal for large organizations that have a variety of different business scenarios and locations. This ability allows global support organizations to have standard tools and methods even in a variety of use cases and site sizes. On the flip side, this flexibility is also sometimes the weakness of the platform. In very specialized use cases/areas such as low latency with flash this can be a detriment. We still seem to use specialty arrays to solve these point requirements.

QNAP NAS

I recommend the QNAP NAS device because it is a simple solution that responds to requests. Simple here does not mean that the product is insufficient, it is designed in such a way that you can easily reach a solution. For example, you can perform a failed disk replacement within 30 seconds without connecting to the interface, or you can start taking a backup of a new user without ever logging into the system.

Cons

NetApp FAS series

  • Deduplication job runs at certain times and creates a large CPU overhead for the system
  • Management of a volumes, disk groups, LUNs, etc. is a burden to manage and is not efficient with storage capacity
  • Upgrades are complicated and not "non-disruptive"

QNAP NAS

  • I've had difficulties upgrading firmwares
  • Reboot it's even very slow , like 15/20 minutes but that's not so critical

It does have a really nice and easy to use web interface to do pretty much anything you need with it. It was very simple to configure our volumes and luns and connect them to our VMWare environment using the interface. It has options to rename, shrink, grow, and other things with our luns and volumes. It was nice and easy to read graphs to see where you stand on your storage usage at a glance.

NetApp support in Brazil is managed by its partners. We know in other countries, such as the US and NO, they have support directly from Netapp. We have a very good NetApp partner working with us since the beginning, on both the implementation and daily support. Very few cases needed to be escalated to NetApp support, most of the cases are handled and satisfyingly closed by the partner.

QNAP NAS is a really good product, but I think the best part is the support for the products. Whenever I have a question or imagine something that won't happen, I can ask the support side. When the support engineer understands what I want to do, he does his best.

Alternatives Considered

NetApp FAS series

Removing PureStorage, which I consider to be ahead of the rest, NetApp FAS series does its job very well and it is not necessary to pay a lifetime support.

QNAP NAS

Cost-effective over EMC Celerra, QNAP was chosen due to its costs and easy maintenance. QNAP can be constantly upgraded and easily maintained over many years.

Return on Investment

NetApp FAS series

  • This device took the place of 6 full servers initially, then 6 or more virtual ones were added later. Enough said.
  • Support -- I can't say enough about this. Having that hard drive arrive, without me asking for it, was awesome. Having the tech arrive without me asking for him was priceless.
  • For the initial outlay, we spent a lot, but I'd say we got most of the ROI back within the first year on this device.
  • Really nothing negative to say from an ROI perspective.
