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.

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.
