Getting Off The NetApp Train


If the constant NetApp mantra of “UPgradeUPgradeUPgrade” is starting to wear on you like a relentless, never-ending chug of a train, maybe it’s time to get off at the Zerowait station!

Say you really like your FAS3270 and want another just like it for remote backup. NetApp says, “Nope”. “But we like our FAS3270!” NetApp just smiles. Well, although NetApp doesn’t like to admit it, Zerowait has off-lease transferable licensed systems like FAS3270s, FAS8060’s and more, typically for less than 50% of the cost of new NetApp. If you like your current systems and want a homogeneous storage infrastructure, NetApp systems with transferable licenses are the obvious answer.

Or, let’s say your FAS3270 is working great, but you have offloaded some of your storage requirements to Outlook 365, Salesforce or another provider. You don’t need bigger, faster, better storage; you just want to maintain the existing one for a couple more years. NetApp says, “Nope”. Planned obsolescence, big Smile. Luckily, Zerowait provides outstanding third-party service and support for legacy filers. Maintaining high availability storage doesn’t have to be expensive.

It could be that compliance with regulations and retention policies mean you do need to add large amounts of on-premise storage. You don’t need all of the bloatware that NetApp includes for premium prices. Zerowait will help your team migrate your data to our Custom Tailored SimplStor Platform and provide a generous trade in value for your end-of-life filers.

Zerowait has been helping clients purchase and maintain their NetApp equipment for 20 years and migrating them to our SimplStor Platform for almost a decade. Zerowait provides alternative solutions for NetApp customers!
