FAS8000 Series

Midrange and Highend comes together

NetApp FAS8000 series storage systems combine a unified, scale-out architecture with leading data-management capabilities. They are designed to adapt faster to changing business needs while delivering on core IT requirements for uptime, scalability, and cost-efficiency.
The series spans three models to enable you to tailor-fit a solution that’s right for almost any environment: FAS8020, FAS8040 and FAS8060. All FAS8000 storage is designed to scale as performance and capacity requirements change. You can scale up—by adding capacity, adding flash acceleration, and upgrading controllers—and scale out. A single cluster can grow up to 24 nodes and 57PB of capacity with ease.
