Texas-based LiveIT Consulting Group will offer its clients a NetApp enterprise-level unified storage platform under a reseller partnership deal.
NetApp’s clustered Data ONTAP software is designed to integrate with VMware vCloud technology and help users migrate data between virtual machines without interrupting operations, LiveIT said Tuesday.
“The cloud is enabling this new era of IT service delivery to help businesses be more flexible, responsive, and competitive,” said Brendon Howe, NetApp vice president of product and solutions marketing.
“One movement–software defined storage–is part of this transformation in IT that helps break down technology barriers, driving increased agility, simplicity, and efficiency,” Howe added.
Garrett Downs, co-founder of LiveIT, said the company intends for the NetApp offering to address server performance and business continuity issues.
