Storage for Windows Environments - Consolidation

Reduce costs by consolidating both your Windows® applications and file storage onto a NetApp® agile data infrastructure.

If you have Windows servers with dedicated disks or small SANs-each acting as a Windows file server or running Windows applications-NetApp can help you significantly reduce your costs while dramatically simplifying your Windows environment. Sprawling servers and storage take up more space and consume more resources. Most Windows servers run at just 15% to 20% of capacity, wasting money and administration time.

Move all your Windows storage to a NetApp agile data infrastructure. Putting Windows application storage on NetApp is more efficient, and it makes your data more easily manageable. The same NetApp storage can simultaneously replace all your Windows file servers, directly serving files to your client desktops. You gain the advantages of the proven storage efficiency and intelligent management capabilities of NetApp storage for both your Windows application and file data:

  • Seamlessly scale with Windows storage growth and reclaim space currently occupied by redundant copies of libraries, lists, data files, or versions
  • Achieve intelligent management to automate tasks and reduce administrative overhead
  • Simplify the complexity of your Windows server and storage environment
