Re: Upgrade path for FAS2554

Depending on your capcity requirements, be sure to also check out the AFF C190, but make sure you understand the limits around expansion. 

Re: Upgrade path for FAS2554

So we can design limits but honestly it requires sizing from the account team. The 2554 is limited by CPU, and when you have a DR site you have things like deswizzling or other wafl scanners. https://kb.netapp.com/app/answers/answer_view/a_id/1004238 outlines more of that (requires login).

 

AFF is better since the bottleneck moves from disk to CPU at that point.

Re: Upgrade path for FAS2554

Thank you, CHRISMAKI, I'll check out the AFF C190.

Re: Upgrade path for FAS2554

Thank you, Paul. I did notice that once I disable all efficiencies on all volumes on this 2554 the CPU and disk utilization go down.
