NetApp Updates its FAS Midrange Storage Systems

NetApp has updated its FAS midrange storage systems with the introduction of the FAS3220 and FAS3250.

The updated systems are designed for stringent SAN and NAS environments, and deliver several benefits in world-class fashion. Users will also be able to create an infrastructure foundation that boosts business growth and contribute to the company’s bottom line.

Designed for SAN and NAS environments, the new FAS storage systems from NetApp are targeted toward enterprises and midsized businesses that are searching for solutions to consolidate their operations onto a shared storage platform.

Once installed, these new releases will increase storage capacity by as much as 100 percent over existing midrange products. Moreover, both the FAS3220 and FAS3250 are designed to deliver support for high-speed operations.

Equipped with all these features, the updated systems aid enterprises in creating a smart and scalable data infrastructure.

“Our new unified midrange products are optimized for both mission-critical SAN and NAS environments, leverage technologies such as Flash and clustered Data ONTAP to address today's performance and capacity needs and nonstop operations, and are architected to scale for future needs,” said Brendon Howe, vice president of Product and Solutions Marketing, NetApp.

NetApp also claims both the FAS3220 and FAS3250 enable users to reduce disk purchases by almost half, thanks to a set storage efficiency features applicable to primary and secondary storage. NetApp's proven Flash technologies ensure that these systems make a significant improvement in application responsiveness and performance.

NetApp was in the news last month for partnering with Cisco (News - Alert) to introduce a number of data center infrastructure solutions.
