Microsoft® server virtualization can bring tremendous efficiencies to your IT infrastructure and turn your data center into a flexible and scalable competitive asset. NetApp® was named Microsoft’s 2013 Server Platform Partner of the Year and 2012 Private Cloud Partner of the Year because of the deep integration and support we offer for Windows Server® Hyper-V®, a foundation for private cloud.
