NetApp Virtualization Guarantee* Program

Show us how much data you need to store in your virtual environment. We guarantee that you will use 50% less storage with NetApp® compared to a baseline of traditional storage. You'll enjoy better protection and more flexibility, and you'll use less storage.

NEW! Program Option

Unleash the full potential of your EMC, HP, or HDS systems with the NetApp Virtualization Guarantee* Program. By using NetApp V-Series open storage controllers, you can use deduplication to reduce your existing data by at least 35%!

Now you have more ways to save with the NetApp Virtualization Guarantee Program:

  • NetApp storage—Use at least 50% less storage with NetApp compared to traditional storage.
  • Non-NetApp storage—Reduce your data by at least 35% using NetApp V-Series with deduplication.

Our unique storage efficiency technologies for Citrix, Microsoft and VMware environments provide greater utilization without compromise. To be eligible for the Program, you must follow the best practices as implemented by NetApp Professional Services and described by the Technical Guide and Best Practices for Citrix, Microsoft and VMware environments.

You must also use the following NetApp features:

  • Deduplication
  • RAID-DP®**
  • Thin provisioning
  • NetApp Snapshot™

When you meet these simple requirements, your virtualization storage requirements will be reduced—guaranteed. Otherwise, a NetApp expert will validate your claim and initiate remediation. If, after our expert analysis, you don’t use 50% less storage with NetApp or reduce your data by 35% on non-NetApp storage with NetApp V-Series, then we will provide the additional capacity to meet the shortfall at no additional charge. It’s that simple.
