The "flavor of *nix" is FreeBSD, which is found just about everywhere
and in just about anything.
Quote from blogs.netapp.com
"Interestingly, our advanced ONTAP GX architecture is built on top of a
full UNIX release. We took Data ONTAP, including WAFL and RAID, combined
it with the new code from our Spinnaker acquisition, and hosted the
combined result on FreeBSD in a combination of user processes and kernel
modules. For security and simplicity we have disabled and hidden many
parts of FreeBSD."
