NetApp Partners with VMware

NetApp announced a new partnership with VMware to deliver enterprise-class EVO: Rail Integrated Infrastructure.

The NetApp Integrated EVO: RAIL Solution is designed for enterprises and midmarket organizations, including remote and branch office environments with limited IT personnel. The NetApp Integrated EVO: RAIL Solution includes flash-accelerated, scale-out NetApp enterprise storage.

“Customers asked us to take a fresh look at how we could extend the benefits of converged systems to meet the needs of smaller department and branch offices,” said George Kurian, executive vice president of Product Operations at NetApp. “By combining NetApp storage with VMware EVO: RAIL, we now offer an integrated solution that offers simple, cost-effective scaling, enterprise performance and the protection required for business critical applications, a single point of support, and best of all, complete flexibility to integrate with the cloud using the NetApp data fabric.”
