NetApp Support Renewals
What do you do after the first SupportEdge contract expires?
When you purchase NetApp storage, you typically receive a very affordable SupportEdge package for the first three to five years. In this way, you are well protected against failures and malfunctions during this time. However, after the first support package expires, you will find that extending maintenance is significantly more expensive. The service remains the same.
If you want to keep paying the original price for the same service, then you are perfectly right here.
We are specialized in NetApp storage systems. With more than 300 certified technicians in more than 40 service locations in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, provide nationwide comprehensive maintenance services, such as NetApp SupportEdge and alternative support packages for older systems.

NetApp Storage – Lifetime and Maintenance
According to a survey by the Service Industry Association (SIA), the most common reason for replacing storage hardware is the excessive maintenance price for the old storage system. Insufficient capacities and performance are only in third and fourth place.
It goes without saying that a data management and data storage system, like every product, has a certain service life. Regular and high-quality maintenance can increase the reliability of such systems and counteract defects. And that far beyond the end of life period.
In most cases, for example, a NetApp FAS system can run for much longer than seven years. This saves costs and you avoid lengthy migration projects.
With our Post Warranty and End of Life Support Packages for NetApp systems, you can protect yourself against any outages or disruptions. Our Professional Services team takes care of all aspects of your data storage and fixes any malfunction within the service level.
Extend NetApp Hardware Lifetime
With our End of Life maintenance, you can extend the life of your NetApp products and increase the return on investment.

We support the following NetApp storage systems
NetApp FAS – A Popular Product Is Going End-Of-Life
One of NetApp’s most widely used products is the NetApp FAS storage system. ONTAP is used as the operating system for the data storage. It was developed by NetApp specifically for midsize companies and fully met market expectations. Performance, extensibility, stability, and a wide range of useful and simple features such as deduplication, compression, and snapshot made the NetApp FAS series a bestseller.
From the NetApp FAS 2xxx models with a few terabytes of capacity to the FAS 8xxx with several petabytes, there was something for every dimension. With the NetApp DS Disk Shelfs, the expandability of the storage capacity was also easy.
But unfortunately, almost all models are now “End of Life” and will go “End of Service Life” in the next one to two years.
NetApp FAS – Continue operating with End-Of-Life maintenance
If products are set end-of-life, this means that firstly they are no longer sold, and secondly they are no longer developed further. Support is offered until the End of Service Life, but very limited because the software and firmware is no longer developed. The EOSL usually follows three to five years after the EOL. From this point on, NetApp officially no longer provides any support at all.
For all those who want to keep their EOL storage running, there is our EOL SupportEdge package. With our NetApp Professional Services team and our own spare parts warehouses, we can maintain your NetApp storage for at least seven to ten years.
This allows you to keep your NetApp system as a productive system or continue to operate as an archive or backup system. With the extension of the hardware lifecycle you not only save money, but also do something good for the environment.

If you should discover a defect in your storage systems, you can contact our certified specialists at any time. Our technicians will help you with every problem competently and at an excellent price. Ask for a maintenance offer and compare for yourself.
NetApp Software Solutions – Data Security Product Lines
Especially in times of the General Data Protection Regulation and the high demands on data security, technologies are in demand that meet these requirements.
NetApp is also a pioneer here and has designed its own product lines for these purposes.
For full disk encryption with FDE (Full Disk Encryption), an implementation of NSE (NetApp Storage Encryption) can be performed. FDE is a third-party vendor. This type of data encryption is particularly interesting for public institutions. Functions such as deduplication and data compression can also be easily integrated with NSE.
Together with SafeNet, NetApp has also launched its own solution, SafeNet KeySecure Key Manager.
