We are in phase of deciding for Netapp Filler Storage, price of FAS2240A-4 is impressive.
Now our requirement are as follows:
1.>Mainly files are GIS images from 2 Gb to 150 GB size each.
2.>Mainly we need NAS CIFS share, with windows desktop
3.>Reading/writing speed should be excellent
4.>100 TB usable capacity SATA (DS4243-0748-24A-SK-R5, 7.2K,SATA,IOM3,SK,R5)
5> Controller should be active/active (Redundant controller)
6.>2 TB SATA disk each
7.>Network bandwidth should be excellent
Now our questions are:
1.>Through-put , what would be the read & write speed ???
2.>I can see in my present system FAS 3140 in CIFS share, when I copy from local desktop hdd to CIFS share, transfer rate is
10 MBps sometime , do you think it is normal ?? then how much read/write speed we can expect from FAS2240A-4 ?????
3.>is FAS2240A-4 is good for archive CIFS share data ???? (GIS Images)
Will it be good to have FAS2240A-4 for your setup ????
