NetApp has developed providers for the Microsoft Virtual Disk Service (VDS) and Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS), which are part of Windows Server 2003 and 2008. These providers will be applied as part of IBM Solutions to improve the efficiency of backup management processes for Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft SQL Server environments. An excellent overview of VSS can be found on Microsoft's website.
The VDS/VSS providers are fully compatible with the IBM DS3000, IBM DS4000 and IBM DS5000 product families using Storage Manager version 8.40 and higher.
