TCS-NetApp Solutions

Data Center Transformation: The service allows you to manage rapid business growth with limited resources by transforming your data center assets. A unified architecture supports multiple protocols in the same system, provides enhanced scalability without forklift upgrades, reduces backup time, and enables thin provisioning to optimize storage capacity and reduce costs.

Storage Services: The alliance provides a single point of contact and end-to-end support services across the storage management lifecycle, and reduces the operational expenses involved in managing storage infrastructure.

Application-centric Architectures: TCS integration expertise and NetApp’s innovative product propositions are packaged to address business requirements for design and deployment of enterprise applications. The solutions are pre-validated in our labs and certified for enterprise applications like SAP, Desktop Virtualization, and MS Exchange. This is supported by detailed PoC reports, reference architectures, and performance benchmarks.

Cloud Solutions: We provide seamless automation for storage provisioning and data protection requirements. We offer utility models for storage systems, suited for private, public, and hybrid cloud deployments, that help customers scale with their growing storage footprint and utilize existing investments efficiently.
