I am a NetApp Shop running Data On-Tap Mode-7. My SAN is about 85% full and I am starting to look at adding some All Flash Array
to it. We are a small law firm of about 150 employees, running 90% plus virtual on-premise. Users have been complaining for some time about slowness. The NetApp serves up all the storage for my environment so I feel that there must be some contention between the VM's and the calls for all the shared files.
I running 2240 with a mix of Fast 15K disk for my VM's and high density disks for my file shares.
I want to augment my VM's from the fast disk aggregate to All Flash
I have spoke to three different companies:
EMC is way to costly and the cost to add additional storage is even more costly. This one is out of the game. Solidfire looks great and allows for smaller chucks which is ideal, but not sure if I want to move to this. Then there is Netapp. I spoke to storage solution architect and they suggested that I stay with Netapp add their All Flash array and migrate over from Mode-7 to cDot.
I would like to know what some of the EE members take on this project is.
