Microsoft Server Virtualization

Optimise your Microsoft virtual infrastructure and improve data centre efficiency using NetApp storage solutions.


Microsoft® server virtualisation can bring tremendous efficiencies to your IT infrastructure and turn your data centre into a flexible and scalable competitive asset. With NetApp® OnCommand® Shift (evolved from MAT4Shift), you can slash virtualisation costs by converting ESX VMs of any size to Hyper-V in minutes.

NetApp complements Hyper-V, enabling you to virtualise storage, consolidate hardware and reduce your data centre footprint. You can use 50% less storage in your virtualised environment, guaranteed*.

We offer simplified file services, effective VDI PDF, back-up in minutes, low-overhead storage, and VM cloning to slash provisioning times and save storage. Benefit from streamlined and automated backup/recovery and Azure-orchestrated Hyper-V disaster recovery with Azure Site Recovery SAN Replication.

With clustered Data ONTAP® software and Windows Server 2012 R2, NetApp supports SMB 3.0 for simple-to-manage NAS storage and ODX PDF for ultra-fast, cross-protocol file transfers. The combination of NetApp and Microsoft software lets you achieve non-disruptive operations, proven efficiency and seamless scalability.
