NetApp EF-Series All Flash Arrays used for data analytics and other high performance application and data base. Its great storage which provide the high IOP's for read intensive application and database and its well managed the all business problems where application and database need high bandwidth of IOP's.
  • This storage for High Bandwidth for Data analysis
  • NetApp EF provide the high IOP's with low latency.
  • Its work well for backup and restore for different application data.
  • NetApp EF-Series All Flash Array need to perform the additional configuration for multipathing
  • Experienced are required to manage this storage
NetApp EF-Series All Flash Array is well designed for application and database for that required high bandwidth, IOP's like data analysis, online transection processing application, fast data backup and restore.

NetApp EF-Series All Flash Arrays for data analytics and for other high performance applications , its great storage provides high IOP's for read-intensive applications ,basically its used in business problems , where application needs high bandwidth of IOP's with simple, fast, reliable enterprise level SAN storage. The scope of this storage in our case to to provide high IOP's to analytics and video surveillance application servers
  • Netapp EF series storage basically used for high bandwidth like data analytics
  • Netapp EF series Flash arrays provide high IOPS with low latency for mixed workload application
  • NetApp EF-Series All Flash Arrays is also used for fast backup and restore of different applications
  • NetApp EF-Series All Flash Arrays basically provides high bandwidth that's basically used for high end application , but still there are lot of application needs to be run on low/medium bandwidth , for that , there some low/medium IOP's disk need be integrated in storage.
  • NetApp EF-Series All Flash Arrays are accessed NetApp SANtricity Web Services Proxy. which is separate tool or agent , its better we can access the GUI vi browser without any tool or agent.
  • NetApp EF-Series All Flash Arrays, need to perform additional configurations for multipathing that's not required in other storage
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.

My customer use this NAS storage devices for bronze application servers (mainly VMs on ESX clusters with important databases). EF- series deliver microsecond response to client's most demanding DBs and maximum uptime. EF-series purchase from NetApp was decided directly by customer architects, and as the devices are powered by NetApp® SANtricity software to give extensive configuration flexibility and custom performance tuning, this was definitely good choice. NetApp here offers ONTAP9 SW and on client environment we use FlexArray Virtualisation as well, becasue ONTAP can integrate with almost any third-party hardware. So, generally, solution for my customer touches virtualization of the environment in 4 regions with most demanded DBs. Globally, likewise for these devices, NetApp come from a larger non-hyperconverged storage family.
  • Storage pooling with thin provisioning
  • Solution of MetroCluster in Cluster-Mode known as MCC
  • very good solution for more than 500 users per cluster
  • impressive IOPS, microsecond response times
  • Faster database application
  • maximum of 2TB for FAS250 models
  • Schedule a downtime maintenance window for SAS expansion cards
  • Its price is competitive to other NetApp devices, but generally very high with additional licensing
NetApp EF-Series All Flash Arrays should be used for critical system backups, databases, for critical applications due to different write allocation algorithms. These systems have faster underlying SSD drives comparing to older types, so in result, Inline data de-duplication in these systems are not noticeable. The idea for these types is valuable for MetroCluster configuration within switchover, in terms of disaster recovery. Performance and response time of EF-series are really exceptional, but comparing to the costs this the rpice for it.
