NetApp to Phase out StoreVault S

Arthur Cole

NetApp has decided that duplication is as bad for storage systems as it is for the data they contain, reports eChannelLine.

The company has decided to phase out the low-end StoreVault S line, targeted at SMBs, and replace it with entry-level FAS systems going forward.

The most likely candidate to replace the S550 and other systems is the FAS2020, which is more scalable and offers greater protocol support to provide a more flexible storage environment. It also provides a clearer upgrade path to higher-end systems.

The company says it will offer a FAS2020 bundle with a six 500GB drive configuration for about $10,000, $2,000 higher than the S550.

Support for the StoreVault line will remain until 2012, although there will be no more system enhancements.
