KCI has extensive hands on experience with NetApp legacy equipment including the rebadged IBM NSeries. We continue to maintain and repair them after the manufacturer has designated them EOL.
NetApp, Inc. is an American multinational storage and data management company. Founded in 1992. NetApp manufactures storage systems that are known for industry-leading performance, scalability, and simplicity. In 2016 NetApp ranked 468 in the Fortune 500.
Like all storage manufacturers today NetApp is transitioning from Hard Disk Drive (HDD) storage to the “all flash” data center. As a result, many NetApp platforms that are still in wide scale use are now designated End-of-Life (EOL) by NetApp. IBM which sold NetApp storage over the years under its own logo as “N Series” has discontinued the sale of NetApp manufactured storage systems as well, further pointing to the shift in storage system technology that is ongoing. Take a look at out our NetApp EOL table to check out all the legacy NetApp and IBM N Series platforms.
While NetApp and other storage manufacturers are developing new storage platforms not all customers are ready for “all flash”.
