  • 19 March, 2009 12:01

<p>SYDNEY, Australia — 19 March 2009—NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) today announced that Gartner, Inc., positioned the company in the Leaders quadrant for Midrange and High-End NAS Solutions. In a recently released research note, "Magic Quadrant for Midrange and High-End NAS Solutions,"1 Gartner asserts, "Vendors in the Leaders quadrant have the highest scores for their ability to execute and completeness of vision. A midrange and high-end NAS vendor in the Leaders quadrant has the market share, credibility, and marketing and sales capabilities needed to drive the acceptance of new technologies. It demonstrates understanding of market needs, is an innovator and thought leader, and has well-articulated plans that customers and prospects can use when designing their storage infrastructures and strategies."</p>
<p>"We consider our positioning in the Leaders quadrant by Gartner confirmation of the outstanding customer experience delivered by our NAS solutions," said Manish Goel, senior vice president, Product Operations at NetApp. "We feel this positioning also validates the company’s commitment to the NAS market and our focus on helping customers simplify their data infrastructure and improve storage efficiency.”</p>
<p>With NetApp® NAS solutions, customer companies of all sizes can benefit by gaining powerful, flexible features and capabilities that optimise the storage efficiency of data centres. NetApp NAS systems simultaneously offer native support for file serving and sharing over NFS and CIFS, which enables customers to seamlessly consolidate multiple file servers for UNIX® and Windows® environments and different workloads on a single NAS platform. These systems can also simultaneously support SAN capabilities, allowing customers to go beyond consolidating their storage onto a single platform, and provide them with the scalability, flexibility, and performance they need to go further, faster.</p>
