NetApp announces new solutions for VMware platforms
Combined solutions accelerate VMware workloads and make it easy to run applications in any environment
NetApp, the data authority for hybrid cloud, has announced new combined solutions for VMware platforms that offer simplified, scalable, high-performance infrastructure for any cloud. Showcased at VMworld 2019 in San Francisco, the company debuted a new virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solution, NetApp HCI for VDI with VMware Horizon 7. The company also announced the availability of NetApp Kubernetes Service (NKS) and NetApp HCI Implementation Services for VMware Private Cloud, all designed to accelerate VMware workloads and make it easy for customers to run their applications where they want.
VMware administrators who create, deploy, maintain, and optimise a network and server infrastructure are increasingly challenged to meet the high expectations of the business for scalability, agility, affordability, and performance. Achieving the ideal infrastructure often comes at a high cost when IT is forced to make tradeoffs between simplicity, scalability, and performance. With these new solutions from NetApp, VMware admins can efficiently manage and monitor their environments, scale up or down as required, and secure and protect their data wherever it resides.
“In today’s data-driven world, faster, simpler access to applications and data is critical to business success,” said Fadi Kanafani, Middle East Managing Director & General Manager at NetApp, “As a result of our ongoing partnership with VMware, we offer breakthrough management solutions for virtual infrastructure, private cloud, public cloud, and desktop virtualisation—in any cloud, in one experience—that offer superb simplicity for high-performance, complex environments.”
NetApp’s new solutions for VMware include NetApp Kubernetes Service (NKS) on VMware, NetApp HCI for VDI, NetApp HCI for VDI with VMware Horizon 7, H615C compute node and NetApp HCI Implementation Service for VMware Private Cloud.
