Virtual infrastructure management: Streamline, protect, deliver

Wouldn’t it be nice to manage your NetApp storage operations directly from VMware vCenter? Now you can. NetApp solutions help streamline your virtual infrastructure and protect your virtual workloads.

Why NetApp for virtual infrastructure management?

Comprehensive storage management directly from VMware vCenter

NetApp solutions for virtual infrastructure management integrate with VMware vCenter to provide end-to-end lifecycle management for virtual machines (VMs) in VMware environments that use NetApp storage systems. Visibility into the NetApp storage environment from within the vCenter console lets administrators easily perform tasks that improve both server and storage efficiency.

The NetApp® SolidFire® VMware vCenter plug-in helps you harness the capabilities of the SolidFire storage platform from within the vCenter environment. It delivers deep integration, end-to-end Quality of Service, automatic storage performance allocation, and simplified management.
