Microsoft® server virtualization can bring tremendous efficiencies to your IT infrastructure and turn your data center into a flexible and scalable competitive asset. With NetApp® OnCommand® Shift (evolved from MAT4Shift), you can slash virtualization costs by converting ESX VMs of any size to Hyper-V in minutes.

NetApp complements Hyper-V, enabling you to virtualize storage, consolidate hardware, and reduce your data center footprint. You can use 50% less storage in your virtualized environment, guaranteed*.

We offer simplified file services, effective VDI PDF, back-up in minutes, low-overhead storage, and VM cloning to slash provisioning times and save storage. Benefit from streamlined and automated backup/recovery and Azure-orchestrated Hyper-V disaster recovery with Azure Site Recovery SAN Replication.

With clustered Data ONTAP® software and Windows Server 2012 R2, NetApp supports SMB 3.0 for simple-to-manage NAS storage and ODX PDF for ultra-fast, cross-protocol file transfers. The combination of NetApp and Microsoft software lets you achieve nondisruptive operations, proven efficiency, and seamless scalability.
