18.4TB Cluster w/ 4x DS14MK4 Disk Shelves & 56x 300GB 15K FC Hard Drives


This is a NEW NetApp 16.8TB FAS6040A Filer System with 4x DS14MK4 Shelves each with 14x X279A-R5 300GB 15,000 RPM Fibre Channel Hard Drives. This offer includes a 3 Year Next Business Day Warranty.

The FAS6040 is a highly scalable system designed to meet the needs of enterprise data centers, including storage for large applications and consolidations. The FAS6040 is expandable to 840 disk drives and a maximum capacity of 840TB. It is available in a single-controller configuration or an active/active, dual-controller configuration. The high-bandwidth controller design provides I/O expandability of up to 56 4Gb per second Fibre Channel ports or 52 1Gb per second Ethernet ports. This FAS6040 Filer System has a 16.8TB capacity with 4x DS14MK4 Shelves each with 14x X279A-R5 300GB 15,000 RPM Fibre Channel Hard Drives (for a total of 56x HDs). This is a dual controler 12U clustered system with twice the performance and fail safe redundancy than a single controller system.

The unified architecture of NetApp FAS6040 provides concurrent support for block (SAN) and file (NAS) protocols via Ethernet and Fibre Channel interfaces. Tiered primary and secondary storage is supported using high-performance FC hard disk drives and high-capacity SATA drives.

Capacity & Performance
The FAS6040 scales to 840 disk drives and 840TB of capacity. Performance, which depends on the workload, is typically 30% higher than the FAS980 system.

Application Level Availability
The FAS6040 with Data ONTAP delivers application recovery in minutes, not hours, upon failure or user error due to high availability system features as well as Snapshot and SnapManager software

Provisioning and reconfiguration take only seconds with the FAS6040. It is easily expanded and supports multiple I/O interfaces as well as several storage protocols to maximize business agility.

Cost of Ownership
The FAS6040 system has lower acquisition and administrative costs than traditional, large-scale enterprise storage systems due to FlexVol, FlexClone, SATA drives, and the management simplicity of Data ONTAP.
