NetApp teams up with Oracle's Virtualization

Here's a snippet from their Press Release:

Network Appliance, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTAP), a leading provider of storage and data management solutions, today announced its support for Oracle® VM, a powerful and easy-to-use solution that delivers the benefits of server virtualization and enables enterprises to effectively utilize resources to further lower computing costs with industry leading, enterprise-class support for their virtual environments.

Oracle VM is a fast, scalable, low-cost server virtualization software that fully supports both Oracle and non-Oracle applications. NetApp complements and strengthens Oracle VM with storage solutions that are best suited for customers’ virtualized environments.

Traditionally, companies deployed IT systems that were specific to each application, resulting in silos of IT infrastructures that became more challenging to manage as they grew. The Oracle and NetApp strategy is to provide customers an enterprise class infrastructure that combines the benefits of grid computing and virtualization technologies. Together, NetApp and Oracle enable customers to pool shared resources to rapidly respond to changing business environments and to create a resilient, highest availability infrastructure for all business and mission-critical applications and databases.
