I'm an FC SAN kind of guy and although we use NetApp 30xx filers for lots of non-essential storage I'm really no expert.
I have a new requirement for a very resilient (i.e. 3 or 4 '9s') basic static HTTP/S web server that will be shipping out large'ish (2-8GB) files from a directory/pool of around 16-20TB.
There will never be more than about 100 clients and there won't be more than 2-3Gbps of bandwidth between this filer/web-server and these clients so outright performance is not really any issue. My question is therefore, how trustworthy/resilient is a NetApp filer when used purely as a HTTP/S server?
Obviously if I ask NetApp they'll say they can give me the moon on a stick but I'm more interested in real sysadmin usage.
Thanks in advance, feel free to 'comment' me any questions.
