NetApp unveils new IT solutions

10 Nov 2010

NetApp has unveiled new platform features, products, and technologies it says will help customers make the transition to an efficient shared IT infrastructure and allow IT to be an accelerator of the business.

“There’s a significant change underway as CIOs look to better align IT to the speed of business and get IT budgets under control,” said Tom Georgens, President of NetApp. “This is a pivotal time, because the decisions IT leaders make will not only impact how they compete today but also the long-term success of their businesses. Winners in this market are thinking and choosing differently, and more customers are turning to NetApp as their storage platform to achieve greater flexibility and efficiency.”

The new portfolio includes the Unified Architecture and Systems portfolio, solid state drives, SAS Disk Shelf, OnCommand Management Software Suite and the FlexPod Modular Data Centre solution, which is part of the firm’s ongoing collaboration with Cisco and VMware. 

“We are paving the way for customers to transition to a shared IT infrastructure that will help them be ready for the future and use IT as a tool to capitalise on new growth opportunities,” added Georgens.

Customer pricing for the new solutions is available from NetApp sales or reseller partners.
