NetApp and VMware, leaders in storage and data management and virtualization solutions, respectively, share a common vision to accelerate the path to the cloud through advanced virtualization and automation. With tight integration of core technologies necessary for cloud computing, the joint solution enables you to:
- Securely isolate multiple tenants (applications, organizations, clients, users, and business units) on a shared IT infrastructure.
- Perform instant, space-efficient, point-in-time backups and restores within minutes.
- Automate provisioning and storage management through a single interface.
The VMware cloud infrastructure and management on NetApp solution combines innovative technologies and cloud best practices to enable enterprises and service providers to rapidly deploy VMware vCloud Director on a foundation designed to reduce cost and complexity. The solution is tightly integrated with the VMware vCenter™ and VMware vCloud Director products, enabling automatic provisioning of virtual data centers (vDCs) and underlying VMware vSphere™ resources from a single console. You can also dynamically expand NetApp storage resources for vDCs and vApps from within VMware vCenter. Intelligent policy-based provisioning means that vCloud administrators can provision the right type of resources to meet stringent service-level agreements (SLAs) .
The solution helps you keep your services always available with built-in data protection . Our VMware vCloud Director object-aware interface provides space-efficient and instant snapshot backups and completes restores in minutes.
