Microsoft® server virtualization can bring tremendous efficiencies to your IT infrastructure and turn your data center into a flexible and scalable competitive asset. NetApp® solutions for virtualization offer efficiencies for data storage similar to what Windows Server® Hyper-V™ offers for servers, and provides a foundation for private cloud.
NetApp complements the Hyper-V platform by virtualizing storage, consolidating hardware, and reducing data center storage, power, cooling, and floor space by 50% or more. We also feature simplified file services, near-instant, low-overhead storage, and VM cloning, to slash provisioning times. You benefit from streamlined and automated backup/recovery and disaster recovery. In Windows Server 2012, NetApp support for SMB 3.0 and ODX enables deployment of VMs in simple-to-maintain NAS storage. Using the clustered Data ONTAP® storage operating system and Windows Server 2012, you can achieve greater flexibility, cross-platform scalability, and nondisruptive operations.
You can use 50% less storage in your virtualized environment, guaranteed. See the NetApp 50% Virtualization Guarantee Program for details.
