Why you Should Consider NetApp Filers and Arrays
NetApp filers, arrays, and disks have recently become very popular due to their revolutionary designs and capabilities.
The NetApp filer is a type of disk storage device. Also known as NetApp Fabric-Attached Storage, it helps to control file systems and to present these files and directories over networks. NetApp storage shelves help to increase and allow flexibility of storage space to meet growing needs.
They can be easily managed and are scalable, therefore allowing your system to grow as you do. They are supported by an operating system known as Data ONTAP and are a prime choice for many organizations as far as storage is concerned.
NetApp arrays also offer options for backups and quick writing on data, without having to depend on disks. If you want a quick, painless way of storing large amounts of data, in a highly secure environment, then NetApp is for you.
The cost of NetApp storage systems vary depending on your needs and storage space requirements. By providing smaller storage space requirements for the same amount of data, it efficiently cuts costs.
