Active IQ Unified Manager Discussions
I am reading NetApp Price list but I can't understand how NetApp storage systems map to T categories (T1, T2, T2C, etc.).
In particular I'd need to know which category FAS 3160 belongs to.
Any help appreciated.
It can be either t1 or t2.
It goes like this
FAS2200 Series t2 or r3
FAS3000 Series t1 or t2
FAS6000 Series t1
You can add a ssd and sas to the 2200 to make them for t1 data if you want. It just depends on how you configure it.
3160 is a good box, but I would go for the 3240 or 3270
Where have you got it from?
Tier table for older models is in https://fieldportal.netapp.com/DirectLink.aspx?documentID=49422&contentID=63926
For newer models as far as I know there is no tiers any more, rather order numbers are model specific.
I am unable to access that link, could you please post tier table here?
What particular price are you after - is it for Operations Manager (Add Node) or something similar?
For other features (like protocols) tiers are irrelevant from what I know - you just have model-specific price.
And one more thought: you should always treat list pricing with a pinch of salt, as the actual sell price should be (more or less) generously discounted
Where can I find a model-specific pricing list?
