"Editors choice winner entry-level flash storage from NetApp"

What do you like best?

NetApp AFF A200 is an entry-level array for small organizations that are either looking to begin with or migrate to all-flash storage, or as a nice option for remote/branch offices. The A200 is a dual-controller platform powered by six-core Intel Broadwell-DE processors and upward of 64GB of memory. From a capacity perspective, the A200 has 24 2.5” bays for SAS flash drives. The array supports up to 15TB drives, bringing a total raw capacity up to 367TB, although effective capacity is much higher with data reduction. Moreover, NetApp offers a guaranteed storage efficiency reduction of 4:1. The A200 also can add capacity through a DS224C expansion shelf. The array runs on NetApp’s ONTAP operating system.

What do you dislike?

The virtualization performance is a little slow

Missing a 1.92TB SSD option to hit the price gap between the 960GB and 3.8TB configurations

Recommendations to others considering the product

Up to 367TB in a 2U footprint (before 4:1 data efficiency)

Data reduction technologies had minimal impact on application workload benchmarks

Tremendous performance at sub-millisecond latencies in VDBench

Mature set of data services and integrations

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The NetApp AFF A200 is an ideal unified storage solution for the mid-market that requires an uncompromising mix of application responsiveness, backed by an extensive list of thoroughbred data services.
