NetApp test aborted.

Disappointing but true: due to the nearly complete lack of documentation and time we aborted the test of the NetApp FAS270 and DS14MK2 today.


The management software is… well – not self explaining at all. Since we do not have a documentation that goes further than setting up the basics we where unable to create a volume big enough to test with – we even where unable to create a iSCSI LUN/volume at all.


Of course we tried and looked – it’s not as if we’re totally unexperienced with such devices. But all hope that we possibly would see a concept that would self explain what to do to get to the goal was not fulfilled.


Very disappointing – unfortunatly the time we had for testing is over – so good bye NetApp – hello IBM. The next thing to test is the IBM storage solution – hopefully better documented and manageable.


The last words of this article by the NetApp:
