Listing Detail Tabs

It's not often a functional Netapp Filer comes available, this is a good opportunity for those wanting reliable storage and/or Netapp equipment to practice on.

We'd ask those interested to read this listing fully, there's a few caveats with Netapps and forewarned is forearmed.

Up for auction here is a dual controller FAS3240 filer with 2x DS4243 disk enclosures containing 12x 450GB 15k SAS disks and 16x 1TB SATA disks. I/o Interfaces are 4gb fibre channel and 1gb ethernet. Controllers also have 256GB FlashCache cards fitted.

The beauty of this system is it supports both block and file; the CIFs licence enables file sharing over ethernet for use as a NAS and the FCP licence enables 4GB fibre channel for use as a SAN. It also has SnapManager enabled for backups.

The filer has the original licences for Ontap versions 8.1X or earlier, 7-mode. It also has some licence upgrades for Ontap 8.2x and above but those are node locked and buyer is likely best advised to stick with version 8.1x. (It has 8.2x installed as the primary image and 8.1x as backup image, some work may be required to configure the preferred boot image)

Bidders should be aware there's no support on this, Netapp don't permit downloads without a service contract and buyer will need to employ their own resources to set up and manage it. Parts at least are readily available from various sources and user manuals aren't too hard to find. There's a bit of a learning curve but it's not too bad.

This system comes complete with all the cabling and rack mounting brackets, we've set it up with some basic volumes although buyer will likely want to start afresh and reconfigure to suit. The extra 12x trays in each DS4243 enclosures are empty disk trays, can add more storage to it fairly inexpensively.
