We provide numerous remote diagnostic technologies for the safe operation of your system, which can prevent errors, and foster effective, maximum device utilization.



AutoSupport: automated error- and status report

All NetApp storage systems have the ability of automated error- and status reports, called ‘AutoSupport’. The surveillance module of the storage can be turned on and off, and in online mode it is able to send alerts to our technicians, to your system administrators and to the support center of the manufacturer via internet in a safe way. This way sometimes the user have not experienced the error, when our technicians have already arrived and started proactive troubleshooting.
This way increasing the operational reliability of the system.
Storages send regular status reports, which help us to improve our support in terms of accuracy and promptness.

The abilities of AutoSupport are the base of advanced services like My AutoSupport.


A part of the base warranty service is a web based interface (My AutoSupport), which provides the following services for our clients:

  • Visualization of NetApp storage environment at device- or at institutional level
  • Historical visualisation of AutoSupport (call-home) actions and alerts history
  • Analysis of capacity and storage (and/or savings) usage
  • Performance analyses, graphs
  • Threat, risk analysis
  • Practical and theoretical configurations comparison and list of differences
  • Firmware (Data ONTAP) upgrade simulation, creation of upgrade plan

My AutoSupport can be reached on the NetApp support website, so you do not have to install any softwares. You only have to enable the AutoSupport service.

Remote Support Diagnostic Tool

A helpful function can be reached in FAS/V3x00 and 6x00 series, which helps to upload the log and diagnostic files onto the manufacturer’s support system, and the NetApp technicians can effectively intervene remotely without onsite assistance.
It can control the AutoSupport function properly, so you can manage to eliminate manual e-mail sending between our customers and the support team.
