The NetApp guys in the office have put together a chart that they keep handy.
It’s a comparison of some of the more popular NetApp filers including the 2200, 2500, 6200 and 8000 series.
Since they think it’s valuable, we thought you might too, so it’s posted below.

Some of these are listed on our main site here: http://www.maximummidrange.com/Shop-NetApp/Filers.html.

For further info, a phone call to 855-932-6627 works best, or send an email to netapp@maximummidrange.com.

Also check out the comparisons (and compatible drive info) of the FAS2020, FAS2040, FAS2240-2, FAS2240-4 and FAS2050 at this blog article http://www.maximummidrange.com/blog/fas2020-2040-2240-2-2240-4-2050-comparison/2582.
