NetApp E Series® Maintenance
Mission critical applications require high performance, enterprise-class hardware – which is why you chose NetApp E Series SAN storage systems. And to keep you at the cutting edge, NetApp use a hardware refresh cycle that forces you into upgrades on a regular basis.
But what happens when your existing E Series SAN continues to deliver according to your needs? Do you have to replace perfectly good hardware with an E Series upgrade?

- All support is provided by NetApp-trained Level 3 engineers, from your initial call to our helpdesk, right through to final resolution.

- By extending the usable life span of your E Series systems, your business realizes an increased return on investment. CDS support contracts offer typical costs savings of 30%-50% on your existing agreement with NetApp too.
