NetApp Releases Platforms

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Network Appliance, Inc. (NASDAQ:NTAP) today extended its data center portfolio with the addition of its newest midrange platforms, the NetApp FAS3040 and NetApp V3040 series. Aimed at making enterprise data center management easier, these systems, combined with Data ONTAP® 7G software, offer flexible and feature-rich unified storage solutions and exceptional price/performance for data-driven business applications such as Oracle®, SAP, and Microsoft® Exchange. The FAS3040 and V3040 systems are also powerful additions to the company’s technical applications infrastructure, providing robust storage for design, automation, and other data-intensive needs. Future Data ONTAP GX support can also be leveraged on these systems for customers who require scale-out solutions.

NetApp is the fastest growing company in the SAN market and continues to hold the leading share in both NAS and IP SAN/iSCSI markets.¹ For NetApp, the FAS3040 and V3040 represent additional market opportunities as the company extends its enterprise lineup and adds more functionality and capability for FC SAN environments. The new systems provide customers with greater storage choices and give them the flexibility to tailor their infrastructures and capital outlays to meet specific data needs.

“The FAS3040 and V3040 distinguish themselves as modular midrange systems that pack a lot of punch without punching a hole in our customers’ budgets, the way competitive midrange solutions do. Customers told us they wanted more midrange options from us that deliver rock-solid SAN and NAS performance, increased data and application availability, ease of management, and extreme reliability—all at a compelling price. These latest systems are designed specifically with data-intensive business and technical applications in mind,” said Patrick Rogers, vice president, Solutions Marketing at Network Appliance.
