Newbie question on netapps, file server, active directory
Posted on 2008-11-13
I know nothing about Netapps other than what I could find on their site and wikipedia.
Are they only hardware boxes with software built into them, or if I already have like an EMC san, does Netapps sell software to integrate with that or what?
I have 2 needs:
#1 File server for 500 users, 2.5TB of storage, that integrates with acive directory.
#2 My VMWare VM's are on a SAN, about 4TB worth.
So my questions:
How can netapps help in each of thee cases and how does it work? Thank you, google hasn't been much help in this arena as I need the idea explained. =/
