NetApp can help in-house and commercial developers improve application quality and time to market while cutting cost.

Performing adequate testing to ensure product quality, while meeting time-to-market requirements and controlling cost , is a significant challenge. NetApp® solutions reduce the storage needed for test environments while cutting the time needed to set up new tests. More efficient testing results in higher quality and faster time to market.

Conventional test configuration requires time-consuming physical copies of software and test data and is not suitable for the virtual server environments now common in test environments.

NetApp FlexClone® technology, by comparison, is almost instantaneous, simple to configure, and ideal for virtual servers. Provisioning typical test lab storage using FlexClone technology takes about 3 seconds versus 27 minutes using the traditional approach.

If you use virtual servers in your test environment, replicating VMs with FlexClone is easy and efficient , minimizing the storage needed to support your virtual environment and accelerating VM pro visioning.  NetApp deduplication might yield further reductio ns in data storage acquisition costs.

NetApp provides a complete suite of hardware and software solutions that address the biggest storage challenges developers face throughout the software development lifecycle. Find out how you can optimize your entire software development storage environment with NetApp.
