Are you faced with an increasingly complex and expensive Microsoft applications environment? You are not alone. The dramatic increase in the number and importance of Microsoft Windows applications, as well as the sheer amount of Windows data, has created significant challenges through a sprawling, difficult-tomanage infrastructure. Ensuring application availability in such an environment is next to impossible, and making changes to meet evolving business needs is a slow, laborious, and expensive process. NetApp and VMware have teamed together to create a joint solution to help you consolidate and virtualize your existing Microsoft applications environment, thereby helping reduce your infrastructure costs by up to 50% and protecting all your applications with best-in-class availability. Because NetApp® and VMware® technologies are already jointly used in thousands of customer sites, the solution is simple and risk free.
