Avanade helps customers realize results in a digital world through business technology solutions and managed services that combine insight, innovation and expertise focused on Microsoft technologies. Their challenges are to improve agility and provide redundancy for business-critical customer hosting environments running in a Microsoft-based private cloud. They chose NetApp to overcome these challenges. They have deployed new environments faster and eliminate downtime for storage maintenance, migrate customer test and development as well as production hosting environments to NetApp storage systems that run the NetApp clustered data ONTAP operating. The results of implementing NetApp were scale customer workloads for performance or capacity without downtime, improve time to market for consulting projects and offer higher SLAs (Service-Level Agreements) for availability and performance.
