The New Test Drive program from NetApp and VMware lets SMBs experience firsthand how virtualization can benefit their storage networks.

NetApp and VMware are very aware of what SMBs are struggling with when it comes to backup and have developed a joint hardware/software solution that should alleviate their concerns. SMBs that purchase an affordable storage solution from NetApp and upgrade to VMware with vSphere with Operations Management Enterprise (VSOM Ent) will be able to quickly and easily add backup and disaster recover capabilities to their existing vSphere environment. This gives SMBs the ability to implement these more advanced storage capabilities using the VMware vCenter console they have grown used to working with.

You can also take a look back at the other posts, “What’s the True Cost of Virtual Network Storage to the SMB?” and “Virtualization and Mid-Size Businesses: What’s the Hold Up?

If you’re interested in seeing just how easy it is to protect your valuable applications and add backup and disaster recovery to your virtualized network, you can download a free 90-day trial of NetApp virtual appliance and VMware software here.
