<p>NETAPP CONTINUES VIRTUAL DESKTOP MOMENTUM WITH ENHANCED TOOLS AND SUPPORT FOR VMWARE VIEW</p>
<p>Sydney, AUSTRALIA – 2 December 2009 – NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) today introduced new tools to help customers deploy and manage virtual desktops through VMware® View™ 4. VMware View and NetApp® storage together enable customers to rapidly provision virtual desktops and storage to keep up with their business needs and help drive down costs.</p>
<p>With the release of NetApp Rapid Cloning Utility version 3.0, which provides support for VMware View 4 and VMware vSphere™, customers can simplify the way they provision VMware virtual machines and streamline their business. Rapid Cloning Utility is a VMware vCenter™ Server plug-in that allows customers to replicate a single image hundreds of times in minutes while using almost no additional storage capacity. Rapid Cloning Utility complements VMware View Composer linked clones by providing advanced cloning capabilities for individual desktops and manual desktop pools. Now VMware View customers can automate and reduce administrative requirements for virtual desktops and complete projects faster, all while keeping storage costs at a minimum.</p>
<p>“Many of our customers are deploying a virtual desktop model to increase the flexibility and control of their enterprise desktops,” said David Hekimian, practice manager for Virtualization at Trace3, a regional systems integrator. “These customers require a proven, enterprise-ready solution that delivers an end-user experience equivalent to existing PCs and decreases overall costs. The efficiencies, data manageability, and business continuity capabilities inherent in NetApp storage, combined with the recent enhancements in VMware View 4, such as PC-over-IP protocol, allow Trace3 to deliver the most compelling and cost-effective desktop solution to end users.”</p>
<p>“VMware View, combined with NetApp storage, reduces the cost of the solution significantly and brings enhanced efficiency and flexibility to help customers deploy desktops as a managed service,” said Patrick Harr, vice president, Enterprise Desktop Marketing, VMware. “VMware View 4 is the best way for our customers to provision their virtual desktops, and NetApp completes the picture by adding the agility to provision storage just as quickly and easily.”</p>
<p>“NetApp’s strong history of collaboration with VMware continues with the launch of VMware View 4,” said Patrick Rogers, vice president of Solutions and Alliances at NetApp. “The advanced efficiency and reliability of NetApp storage, combined with the control and flexibility of VMware View, allows us to jointly deliver an optimum solution that positively affects virtual desktop ROI for our customers.”</p>
<p>Pricing and Availability</p>
<p>NetApp Rapid Cloning Utility version 3.0 will be available in January 2010. Pricing for Rapid Cloning Utility is available from NetApp sales or reseller partners.</p>
