Speed backup, restore, and disaster recovery operations in a Microsoft virtualized environment.


One of the many benefits of virtualization comes from consolidating multiple underutilized servers and running them as virtual machines on a single system. You’re saving space, lowering power and cooling costs, and using fewer machines to do more work. You might also find that highly utilized servers no longer have the additional cycles to run a backup agent. With NetApp®, you can eliminate these bottlenecks by off-loading backups from the host server to the storage system.

Our support for Microsoft Windows Server 2012 is another example of how NetApp remains in the forefront of providing an agile data infrastructure for Microsoft applications.
