Hi Justice,

The details of the tested config are available in the FDR

http://spcresults.org/sites/default/files/files/full_disclosure_report/A32007_FDR.pdf

You can see there that each pair of nodes used the new AFF A800 w/24 NVMe drives and 16Gb FC. DataONTAP 9.4 was the array OS, which any customer can download. While you aren't wrong that many vendors will try to game the test, NetApp has an extensive history of testing only configurations our customers would use, or in this case, are already using.

Be mindful to prevent skepticism from becoming cynicism. :)

Mahalo,

Dan Isaacs
