  • Netapp extends virtualisation guarantee to include EMC, IBM, HP and HDS storage systems

    (EMAILWIRE.COM, February 27, 2009 ) HONG KONG - - In an effort to help customers maximise the value of their existing storage investments, NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) has announced the industry's first-ever Guarantee* Program for installed third-party storage. As an addition to NetApp's existing Virtualisation Guarantee Program, which was introduced in September 2008, NetApp is offering a guarantee that customers will decrease their non-NetApp primary storage capacity for virtual server environments by 35 per cent using NetApp V-Series and deduplication technology.

    Now customers have more ways to save save with NetApp's Virtualisation Guarantee Program. Customers can take advantage of NetApp's guarantee that they will use 50 per cent less storage in their VMware, Citrix and Microsoft virtual environments with NetApp storage compared to traditional storage arrays. Alternatively, for customers that already own EMC, IBM, HP or HDS storage systems, NetApp will reduce redundant copies of their primary data by at least 35 per cent with NetApp V-Series.

    "Customers are stretching their budgets and looking to lower their overall infrastructure costs while minimising the risk of their IT investments," said Jay Kidd, chief marketing officer of NetApp. "While server virtualisation is a way for customers to achieve greater efficiency in the data center, NetApp further fulfills this promise with our storage efficiency capabilities that help not only save space and cost but also minimise risk of their storage investments. Now we're assuring customers that they can realise efficiencies with our competitors' storage using NetApp V-Series. No other storage vendor is willing or able to match this guarantee."

    Now NetApp customers can achieve greater storage capacity utilisation on inefficient systems that they already purchased and deployed and tap into the unrealised potential of their existing storage infrastructures. NetApp provides the most complete storage efficiency technologies for virtual server environments so that customers can improve protection of their data assets, buy less storage and reduce their overall power, space and cooling costs in their data centers.

    NetApp V-Series is an open storage controller that unifies NetApp and non-NetApp storage under a common storage architecture. V-Series enables customers to take full advantage of the benefits of the powerful features of Data ONTAP such as deduplication, thin provisioning and Snapshot technology, to improve storage efficiency and dramatically simplify data management. NetApp deduplication has become one of the fastest growing technologies in the company's history, with more than 28,000 systems deployed across all tiers of data, including primary, backup and archival.

    Availability and Requirements
    Customers anywhere in the world who purchase a new V-Series system for their virtual desktop and server environment, including Citrix XenServer, VMware ESX and Microsoft Windows Server Hyper-V™, can take advantage of this program. If customers don't improve their storage capacity on competitive storage systems by at least 35 per cent with NetApp V-Series and deduplication (and after following established best practices implemented by NetApp Professional Services), NetApp will provide the additional storage capacity needed to meet customers' shortfall, valued up to 35 per cent of the original controller purchased, at no additional charge*. Qualifying service delivery is available from NetApp Global Services or participating Authorised Professional Service Partners in networked storage for virtualised platforms.
