What's different with AFF & EF series

Re: What's different with AFF & EF series

Aff is more storage function, ef is performance.

Re: What's different with AFF & EF series

I think Aff is Storage Array data Management

ef is application data management

Re: What's different with AFF & EF series

AFF ==> Unify storage & more function
EF ==> Best Performance

Re: What's different with AFF & EF series

If need some function like snapmirror must use AFF, EF series is good for low lantency,high iops.

Re: What's different with AFF & EF series

the ef series is based on the e-series hardware and software. It is Block storage only.

AFF is FAS based. File and Block storage with all the efficiency and data protection normallyou associated with NetApp.

AFF is FAS system with All SSD Disk in it .

EF is E-Series system with All SSD Disk in it.

Hi Jerry

 

both use a different OS too

 

All Flash FAS uses Clustered Data ONTAP OS

E-Series uses Santricity OS.

 

Also AFF is unified storage, all protocols NAS and SAN wheras E-Series is for SAN protocols only.
