The NetApp FAS2520, NetApp’s entry-level storage system, is ideal for medium-sized companies, owing to the excellent cost performance resulting from its superior durability and minimal operational and management costs over the long term. In addition, though an entry model, it has the same configuration as models for large companies, and can reduce the data management costs of an entire IT environment by utilizing the superior functionality of NetApp’s Clustered Data ONTAP®, NetApp’s original storage OS.
