FAS3200 Series

Great value and advanced efficiency in a mid-range storage system

Get advanced capabilities in a mid-range storage system and easily respond to future expansion. The FAS3200 series can handle today’s diverse, virtualized workloads and easily respond to future expansion. The NetApp FAS3200 series helps you efficiently meet the storage needs of business applications in both virtual and traditional environments.
Consolidate a wide range of data sets and be ready to respond to change more easily and non-disruptively thanks to the extra PCIe slots, high performance and enterprise-class availability of the FAS3200 series. Mid-size environments can gain high-end benefits even if you do not have the budget or space required to support frame-array-class systems. Regional data centers, replicated sites and departmental systems that need full-featured, yet efficient storage with advanced availability and performance capabilities can also benefit. The FAS3200 series spans two models which enable you to create a solution that is exactly right for your environment: FAS3220 and FAS3250.

FAS3200 Series

Key featuresBenefits
Leading efficiency
  • Truly unified storage architecture that uses a single platform with common software and processes across all the storage tiers
  • NetApp deduplication and data compression provide a striking answer to ever-increasing storage capacity demands
  • Integrated data protection reduces the cost and complexity of safeguarding your business
  • One operating system across the entire family and heterogeneous disk array support with the V-Series
Flexible capacity scaling
  • Scales to nearly 3 PB of versatile storage that adapts readily to your growing storage demands
  • Multi-protocol support for any requirement
  • Supports 50% more PCIe slots for higher I/O performance and more bandwidth
  • Data ONTAP in both standard and cluster modes, providing you with the flexibility of up to 24 nodes
 
Enterprise-class availability
  • High-end features, such as Alternate Control Path (ACP) and service processor
  • Boost data availability with zero planned and unplanned downtime by combining with the MetroCluster™ solutions
  • Implement distance array-based clustering to protect against outages within your data center, across campus or in the city due to hardware failures, power, network and environmental faults
Leading performance
  • Use the DS4243 with solid state drives (SSDs) when every I/O read must be fast.
  • Boost system performance by adding up to 2 TB of Flash Cache. These intelligent caching modules automatically increase read rates and reduce average latency for frequently accessed data without having to add more disk drives
  • Flash Cache combined with hard disk drives is an effective and typically more affordable alternative to SSDs.
