Unified Windows Storage Consolidation: NetApp Windows Consolidation in Virtual Server Environments
 
 This report documents the results of ESG Lab hands-on testing of a NetApp Unified Storage Architecture deployed in a VMware virtual server environment with a goal of simplifying, protecting, and consolidating physical servers hosting Microsoft applications.  The value of NetApp features and software (e.g., file serving, Virtual Storage Console (VSC) version 2.0, FlexClone, Deduplication, and SnapManager Suite) is validated in a VMware vSphere environment running a consolidated mix of applications including Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server, and Domain Controller.
