NetApp is at it again – where do they come up with these claims? They are not validated by their Spec.org tests, as can be seen in this comparison.
The FAS3000 series delivers up to twice the price/performance and
supports more users per system than previous generation FAS storage
systems for greater storage architecture capability. As part of the
unified NetApp architecture, these midrange systems support file
services, FC SAN, IP SAN, and multiple network configurations, while
offering scalability to higher performance systems with seamless,
painless upgrades without requiring the “forklift” data migration
needed by most other offerings currently on the market. With storage
capacity of up to 84TB and 336 disks, the FAS3000 series brings
high-end capabilities with a midrange price tag.
