  • Protect your critical data more efficiently with integrated data protection such as RAID-DP®, Snapshot™, and Open Systems SnapVault®.

    System Setup is an intuitive GUI-based utility that dramatically simplifies the setup and provisioning of your FAS2500 systems. System Setup automatically discovers your new system and uses a wizard process that provides recommended defaults for optimal system utilization and performance. Now it takes just minutes to set up your FAS2500 systems. OnCommand System Manager is a simple but powerful browser-based management tool to simplify ongoing management and administration of the FAS2500 systems.
    In addition to the standard set of powerful software that comes with every FAS2500 system, the optional Extended-Value Software products offer advanced capabilities such as instant data recovery, instant cloning, data replication, disk-to-disk backup, and application-aware backup and recovery.

  •   Built to meet your changing needs
    As your business grows and priorities change, it is important to have a storage solution that responds to your changing IT needs dynamically and cost-effectively.
    The NetApp FAS2500 series provides different ways to support your growing needs:
  • Start small and grow big by adding more nodes as needed nondisruptively without tying up large capital expenses upfront.
  • Simplify scale-out with a two-node switchless cluster that requires no additional infrastructure investments.
  • Upgrade to higher end NetApp systems while using the same operating system and software tools, reducing administrative overhead by up to 60% by eliminating retraining.

    Cloud has increasingly become an important part of IT strategy as organizations look to be more responsive to their users’ needs for quick access to storage and off-site data protection. If your IT strategy includes cloud, now or in the future, a FAS2500 that runs Data ONTAP is a great choice. Your FAS2500 will arrive ready to connect to multiple cloud services and solutions—all built on NetApp Data ONTAP and available through hundreds of NetApp partners worldwide. You’ll choose between industry-leading public cloud service providers, such as OBS, Verizon Terremark, AT&T, Rackspace, ACS, and T-Systems, and innovative partners such as Blue River IT that offer cutting edge solutions based on NetApp Private Storage for Amazon Web Services. Built on a universal data platform, equipped with data portability technologies, NetApp-based cloud solutions enable seamless movement of data in and out of the cloud. So you can manage and control your data with confidence and prevent vendor lock-in.
