NetApp Showcases Strategies and Solutions to Simplify the Transition to Next-Generation Data Centers at VMworld 2016

NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP), a VMworld Global Diamond sponsor, will share strategies to help customers optimize their transition to the modern data center at VMworld 2016. NetApp will also showcase its industry-leading flash portfolio and its newest joint innovations with VMware.

This conference is a unique opportunity for customers to learn from NetApp experts about innovative ways to simplify, accelerate, and cloud-enable their VMware environments. VMworld opens on August 28 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Convention Center in Las Vegas and runs through September 1.

Attendees can connect with NetApp in booth #1535, which will feature demonstrations, mini theater presentations, and opportunities to meet with subject-matter experts. Featured solutions include NetApp® All Flash FAS and SolidFire® flash systems, FlexPod® converged infrastructure, hybrid cloud offerings, ONTAP® 9 software, and the new NetApp SolidFire vCenter Plug-In (VCP) 2.7. The new VCP further simplifies SolidFire management for VMware administrators. Administrators can now manage SolidFire storage in their VMware environment through the vCenter console—without having to open the SolidFire UI to enact common storage management tasks.

“NetApp and VMware have one of the most successful technology collaborations in the industry, with more than 14 years of joint innovation benefiting 50,000+ customers and hundreds of channel partners,” said Maria Olson, vice president of Global Alliances at NetApp. “At VMworld this year, we’re highlighting our expertise in the software-defined data center, where we have strong leadership in data management software with ONTAP and SolidFire, and in converged infrastructure, where we recently announced the availability of VMware’s EUC Horizon 7 SW for All Flash FAS FlexPod.”

Among the “don’t miss” speaking sessions that feature NetApp experts are:
