<p>Analyst firm figures show Network Appliance leads worldwide WAN Optimization Controller Equipment Market</p>
<p>Sunnyvale, Calif. – August 19, 2005 – According to Gartner’s first report for the Worldwide WAN Optimization Controller (WOC) Equipment segment of the Application Acceleration Equipment market, Network Appliance (NASDAQ: NTAP) leads the market, capturing 24.0 per cent of the 2004 revenue market share.1 The WOC Equipment segment is a $359 million piece of the overall $915 million Application Acceleration Equipment market.1</p>
<p>In the report, Gartner explains that as more organizations centralize their servers and deploy Web-enabled intranet applications, WAN Optimization Controllers solve performance problems caused by bandwidth constraints and latency or protocol limitations.</p>
<p>WOCs are specifically designed for network deployment, used mainly in data centers and remote locations to improve application performance across WANs. The NetApp® NetCache® systems portfolio was most recently enhanced in June with the introduction of the C2300 and C3300 models. In a distributed environment, NetCache appliances improve access to applications and content within corporate WANs by storing content closer to end users, thus eliminating network and server bottlenecks.</p>
<p>“The diverse mix of NetCache customers, including large enterprises and service providers, led to the success of NetApp within this market segment,” explained Edward Sharp, general manager of the Content Delivery business unit at Network Appliance. “The value of the NetCache product line is displayed by its delivery of information for enterprises—providing security, accelerated information access, cost savings, and reliability. In the past year, we have further strengthened NetApp solutions by providing a broader range of features, increased storage capacity, and value-added services of NetCache appliances. As we look to extend our position as the market leader through 2005, we will continue to address customer challenges with reliable, affordable solutions for simplifying Internet security and content delivery.”</p>
