By | December 27, 2015

This is a post that I wanted to write long time ago. I was looking for a post/article where I could find information about array (of course the most known storage vendors) operating systems (OS) such NetApp Data ONTAP, EMC Isilon OneFS etc.

The post is prepared as a table where you can find information about Storage Array model, Operating System (OS) and type (SAN/NAS). Any missed Storage Array and OS? Please leave a comment and I will add it.
