I was on a bike ride with an old friend whom I hadn’t seen in about 25 years. The obvious question was “what’s new?” Do you mean in addition to a generation of experiences? Marriage, kids, careers – same old stuff. Yourself?
Turns out that there’s a lot that’s “new.” There’s a Facebook page dedicated to everything that’s new. That’s quite an undertaking, when you consider that some 2 ½ million terabytes of data are generated every day. Thank goodness, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have a “what’s new” site for all things COVID-19 related. And have you ever wondered what’s new with Taco Bell’s menu? Nah, me neither.
One thing I’ve found interesting in researching this post is all the highly ranked hits for Microsoft products—Windows 10, .NET, 365 Office, and such. One product that’s missing from this list is SQL Server. I guess that there hasn’t been much new since it was released late in 2019. And that’s where NetApp comes in. NetApp has supported Microsoft SQL Server for years. Which isn’t new. NetApp has been helping SQL Server customers, like Children’s Mercy in Kansas City, deliver better care to their customers (and patients) for years.
What is new is that NetApp has a whole slew of new assets to help you understand how supporting your SQL Server environment on NetApp can help drive improvements in your business. Shortening the dev/test cycle can help you to respond to changing customer demand more quickly; check out how NetApp can help you accomplish this and more. If you’re one of the many SQL Server 2008 customers who are trying to decide which version of SQL Server you should upgrade to, relax. NetApp has you covered, whether you’re thinking to remain on premises, looking to the cloud, or both.
Check out what’s new on the Microsoft Solutions webpage and learn about all the ways NetApp can help you derive more value from your Microsoft investment.
