Connecting cheap storage

rsmits1074

Hello,

We were wondering if someone has ever connected a cheap storage device to a Netapp filer ?

We are interested to connect an Axus Yotta to a free fibre port on our V3170.

Is this possible, and has anyone ever done this ?

Greetings .. Richard

The list of third-party storage arrays supported with V-Series can be found on NOW: http://now.netapp.com/NOW/knowledge/docs/V-Series/supportmatrix/.

As Paul responded, the intent and policy is to support widely-used mid-range and high-end storage arrays.  NetApp does not support entry or 'cheap' storage arrays for various technical, logistical and business reasons.

I'm afraid that will not work. Its not supported, and there are no plans to offer support for low end arrays at all at this time.

We support the two top tiers of storage vendors arrays. These would both be classified as enterprise class storage devices. Eg Tier 1 arrays - DMX, USP-V, VSP, XP etc and Tier 2 being AMS, EVA, DS etc. All our supported arrays are listed in the V-Series support matrix. It would depend on commercials as too which would be the cheapest but I wouldn't suggest any would fit into the category of 'cheap' storage.
