SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Network Appliance, Inc. (NASDAQ:NTAP - News) today announced that InCore Transaction Bank of Switzerland has selected NetApp unified storage solutions for its transaction-intensive data service and data protection needs. InCore Bank offers services such as brokerage, payment transactions, and reporting for small and midsize private and retail banks in Switzerland and Liechtenstein. NetApp fabric-attached storage (FAS) systems provide InCore Bank with optimal storage resource utilization, streamlined administration management, and consolidated and simplified data protection operations.
