NetApp and VMware to work together

VMware has won the heats and is spidering its web into the hearts of the corporate vendors. and surely there are others who remain still at bay, chiefly competitors, and I can understand the reluctance, but it's time to join the game and make technology alliances with VMware. This would mean several vendors like Oracle and Microsoft.

Imagine if Oracle and Microsoft do make such a massive, and very cool move, like this, why on earth would you want to do business via via?

Anyways , for now, lets look at NetApps's 10 reasons to deploy VMware:

1. Increase overall productivity. The
combination of VMware and NetApp
offers significant advantages for companies
that are consolidating servers and
storage by reducing costs, maximizing
storage utilization, and increasing
operational efficiency.
2. Flexibility. NetApp solutions give you
the ultimate in flexibility by enabling you to
choose iSCSI, FCP, or NFS connectivity
within a single storage platform. NetApp
systems can also mix drive types within
a single system so that you can tier your
virtual machines (VMs) within a single
architecture, giving users flexibility and
investment protection.
3. Streamline storage allocation to
virtual machines. With NetApp, VMware
administrators can supply storage to virtual
machines in seconds while achieving
the highest level of storage utilization.
