As we announced yesterday we are proud to have NetApp and Cisco participating in the Hyper-V Cloud Fast Track program and delivering pre-validated private cloud solutions for customers.
The new NetApp Hyper-V Cloud Fast Track with Cisco builds upon the reference architecture and layers on the additional capabilities inherent in the NetApp and Cisco infrastructure. This joint solution exemplifies a key tenet of Fast Track which is the extensible nature of the architecture. Check out what NetApp is saying about this solution as well as Cisco.
If you happen to be at Tech Ed, Alex Jauch from NetApp, will be demonstrating some of the capabilities of their offering in Bryon Surace’s VIR327 session on Hyper-V Cloud Fast Track on Tuesday morning at 10:15 to 11:30 in Room B211 – hope to see you there.

Today NetApp announced the NetApp Hyper-V Cloud Fast Track with Cisco data center architecture design. This pre-validated configuration is built on research and solution development by the Microsoft Technical Marketing team at NetApp. During early planning for the project, we laid out a few high level NetApp engineering goals to deliver a robust, innovative solution for private clouds:
With these goals, Cisco was a natural partner for the solution:
Great System Center integration PowerShell support for UCS Large memory advantages in the UCS architecture enable VM density and large applications Cisco technical teams have worked well with NetApp on many innovative solutions
There’s a tremendous amount of work behind the solution. It rides on the foundation NetApp made in December 2009 in when our strategic alliance with Microsoft focusing virtualization, cloud computing, and storage & data management was announced. PowerShell support has been incredibly important along with our other System Center integrations. We are particularly proud to use these in the solution and introduce Opalis support.
The team will be in the NetApp booth #1001 at TechEd. Drop by and see us and the demos we’re running every 30 minutes in the theater.
