Recently, we’ve gotten a lot of calls and emails about our analysis of NetApps FAS3020 as compared with some of the systems it superseded.
One of our customers sent us this quote by a NetApp VP in reference to the new FAS3020 systems “The emphasis is on redefining the price performance,” said Suresh Vasudevan, senior vice president of products at Network Appliance. “The main attributes of the new platform supports four times the capacity and has two times the price performance.”
How did they come up with these numbers? We can’t find any validation in the www.Spec.org tests. Our review of the Spec.org tests seems to show only a meager improvement in performance over their older systems. So, how does NetApp come up with their price performance figures?
