3 minute readUpgrading Your NetApp Filer: What You Need to Know
In a time of dramatic data growth, needs for more capacity and performance remain the norm. This means IT decision makers must meet increasing data storage requirements with a shrinking budget.
You might feel overwhelmed at the task of keeping your data center equipment up to demand, but you have options. The easiest and most cost-effective way to increase data capacity is to upgrade your existing NetApp filer. Follow these tips to add NetApp upgrades to your filer efficiently while saving time and money.
What NetApp Upgrades Do you Need?
Before making any changes within your IT infrastructure you should understand what it could mean for your entire data center and IT department. Adding NetApp drives and disk shelves to your storage filer is no different.
When enhancing performance and capacity in your environment, it is important to consider what type of NetApp upgrades will best meet your data center needs.
Consider Pre-Owned NetApp Gear
It’s no secret data storage hardware from the OEM can be expensive and impractical for current IT budgets. Instead of paying top dollar for new equipment, explore some alternatives. The secondary market is ripe with NetApp drives, disk shelves, spares, and other upgrade components for a fraction of the price.
How Will You Maintain Your NetApp Hardware?
So you’ve found the NetApp disk shelves, drives, and parts you need for your IT infrastructure. All done, right? Wrong. Purchasing the NetApp upgrades is only half the battle. You should also consider how you will protect and maintain your NetApp hardware.
Some trusted resellers, like Reliant, offer hardware warranties to ensure your equipment will be replaced should something go wrong. We also offer extended warranties and other third party support services to keep your mission critical hardware up and running.
