What All Flash FAS is

All Flash FAS (AFF) systems optimize I/O and maximize application throughput while running flash-optimizing functions to accelerate a broad range of SAN and NAS workloads. In general, All Flash FAS systems use the same ONTAP commands and features as the FAS platforms, although there are a few differences.

All Flash FAS systems can be ordered with a factory-configured FC SAN optimized configuration. The FC SAN Optimized AFF Setup Guide has more information about FC SAN optimized AFF system setup.
