In today’s highly automated, technology-driven economy, business success has become inextricably linked to IT capabilities. Applications such as Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint serve a wide range of critical business functions, including communication, knowledge management, collaboration and day-to-day operational activities. However, the inefficient server and storage infrastructure that has grown up over time in most Windows environments is not compatible with today’s flat or declining IT budgets.

This whitepaper explores the reasons for consolidating Windows environments to help combat today's IT challenges, and explores and the benefits of doing so with a joint NetApp-VMware solution. Read on to learn how such a solution can help your organization overcome the following challenges:

  • Unsustainable IT costs
  • Complex management
  • Poor availability
  • Inability to grow with and adapt to business demands
