NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) a leading provider of network storage solutions and LiveIT Consulting Group, a leading IT infrastructure VAR, are working together in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex to enable delivery of tiered storage solutions that leverage storage assets across an organizations global infrastructure.
“Storage efficiency and data protection are top of mind for our customers. It’s all about mitigating risk and lowering costs,” states LiveIT Co-founder Garrett Downs. “Offering NetApp’s unified storage allows us to proudly provide our clients with enterprise storage technologies, business continuity and simpler, more manageable solutions that require fewer IT resources.”
“This is exactly why we offer our customers NetApp,” said LiveIT CFO Richard Ramsey. “Our customers are visionaries who know they need to scale as they grow and they need a storage foundation that can seamlessly grow with them. What’s priceless is that while they may spend more money upfront for NetApp, later we don’t have to inform them in order to upgrade we’ll have to take their system off-line and then migrate the data."
With the recent announcement of new integrations with NetApp clustered Data ONTAP software and VMware solutions to enable non-disruptive migration of data for hundreds of virtual machines at a time, organizations can now rapidly and cost-effectively deliver new services with maximum application uptime and uninterrupted business operations.
Brendon Howe, NetApp VP of Product & Solutions Marketing, states, "The cloud is enabling this new era of IT service delivery to help businesses be more flexible, responsive, and competitive. One movement--software defined storage--is part of this transformation in IT that helps break down technology barriers, driving increased agility, simplicity, and efficiency. NetApp and VMware will continue to align our development efforts to help organizations and CIOs realize the agility of the cloud and the power of clustered Data ONTAP and its integration to VMware vCloud Suite to focus on IT server delivery versus hardware limits."
