FAS2020, 2040, 2240-2, 2240-4, 2050 Comparison

The NetApp FAS2020, FAS2040, FAS2240-2, FAS2240-4 and FAS2050* filers are relatively new to our permanent inventory but increasing quickly in popularity due to their dependability, readily available spares and affordability (according to our clients).

Although the Active-Active configs are considerably more popular than their single controller siblings (see this blog article for an explanation of Active-Active and Clustered), we wanted to put together some comparisons of this hardware in both configs to help answer some questions.
