What is NetApp FAS Storage System?
NetApp FAS, also called NetApp Fabric-Attached Storage and often known as NetApp "filer", is a flagship NetApp storage appliance.
The NetApp FAS2xxx appliance has physical storage with large disk arrays. It uses either Fibre Channel, SATA, SAS or SSD disk drives, clustered into RAID groups (Redundant Array of Independent Disks).
The product line All-Flash FAS also known as AFF A-series is based on the same hardware as the FAS storage appliance, but only works with SSD drives (no HDD).
