NetApp [FAS] is being used for my BFS client; the FAS series is used as NAS devices [that] provide files as a services to many users as well as for FC and iSCSI protocol. [The] FAS 8000 and 9000 Series have been used in [the] current environment.

I've used several NetApp FAS series devices in different organizations to handle large storage requirements for various systems or entire data centers. It has been used as top-tier storage with innovative enterprise features like flash cache and deduplication. I've also used many of its backup features that are touted as a big part of the NetApp software.

[NetApp FAS series] is being used throughout the virtual environment, delivered on LUNs and also for direct delivery of NFS to virtual machines.

Our NetApp's served file shares, VMware, and Microsoft LUN data. This was used across our organization. We went through 2 hardware refreshes. Originally we needed to start with entry-level SAN and move away from file server-based storage, but it expanded over time.

NetApp FAS controllers are being used to store critical system data for operational sites. They provide the primary storage platform for VMware-based storage at a number of locations. Applications running on NetApp FAS controllers range from infrastructure-based services (VMware, Monitoring, Anti-Virus) and application servers. Deployments range from standalone FAS to MetroCluster deployments.

NetApp has been defined as a Global standard for NAS (CIFS, NFS) workloads in our company, so it is being actively used in several of our sites across the globe. The largest sites using it are the USA, Brazil and Norway.
One of the main reasons for it to be selected as the standard for NAS workloads is the resiliency and high availability it provides. In Brazil, we have ~5000 users accessing more than 700TB of user data (CIFS shares) on a daily basis. We didn't have a single availability incident in the last 7 years!

NetApp FAS is being used in our environment as our SAN and CIFS file system. This system replaced an old (and undersized) storage array. This system is now used for a number of things including a complete disaster recovery plan and backup system. One important part of this was to speed up backup recovery times. NetApp software makes this possible.

Two NetApp FAS series are being used as CIFS servers. They serve all the department's folders for the whole organization. So, we replaced our typical Windows servers with a NetApp solution. Why? Basically, for two main reasons. First, for security purposes. We make volumes snapshots every hour. In the case of a ransomware infection, we resolve the incident by managing snapshots. The second reason we switched was so fileservers don't have a typical NetBIOS name. We use NetApp for our CIFS servers in conjunction with Active Directory DFS so folders and files have no dependencies of a fileserver name. This is great.

We have one NetApp FAS2200 device that houses the entire backend of our virtual server network behind two Dell PowerEdge R front end servers. This device houses all of the virtual server files for all of the organization's virtual server infrastructure. This one device -- containing an array of hard drives -- pumps out enough speed and bandwidth to run about 12+ servers at the same time.

We use a NetApp FAS3210 in our main office and a FAS2240 offsite in our colo. The FAS3210 is our primary storage for all of our VMWare environment, which includes 9 VMWare hosts and over 220 virtual servers. The FAS2240 in the colo is used for a handful of production VMWare machines, as well as the storage of some offsite backup from our executive office.

It is being used for the IT department or across the whole organization. It solves our IT Infrastructure growth issue.

We have approximately 2 NetApp FAS in use today ranging from DR configurations all the way to small corporate data center installations. We are a long term customer with over 5 years of experience with NetApp in production and development at our company.
