FAS and V-Series Storage Systems Discussions

Does the system cabinet that comes with the FAS3270 have to be used?


This is the first time I am working on a system design for the FAS3270 and I know it comes with a cabinet.  Is it necessary to use that cabinet or even receive the cabinet with the purchase?  My customer has their own DC with rows of racks already and does not need the cabinet.  Thanks.



You can mount FAS in any standard 19" rack. Be sure to order correct mounting kit, there is one for NetApp racks which is not suitable for non-NetApp (we had customer who did this mistake ...).


Thanks aborzenkov, I see on the NetApp Hardware Universe that there is a 3rd party cabinet rail kit for the 3U controllers.
