Maximizing Storage Efficiency With the NetApp V-Series at National Semiconductor

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Like most storage teams, the company at National Semiconductor over the last few years has worked to consolidate storage to maximize efficiency. This is a necessity when deployed storage is growing at 50% or more per year. However, because they have separate NAS and SAN systems, a level of inefficiency remains as a result of the two separate storage pools. Ultimately, the company discovered that they could overcome this limitation using NetApp V-Series storage virtualization systems to provide multiprotocol access to storage residing on the EMC SAN. They just recently reduced the costs by 50% by replacing two older NetApp FAS960 systems that they had on lease with V-Series systems backed by existing SAN storage.
