Improve IT Efficiency with NetApp


Optimizing IT efficiency can save your business time, money, and valuable resources. Yet many companies either don't know how to effectively measure and monitor IT efficiency, or they don't know how to drive necessary change within their environment to improve efficiency.


Since storage is often the number one line item in most IT budgets, start there. We can help you identify steps to maximize efficiency and improve your business's bottom line. Our customers:

  • Often realize payback in as little as six to nine months
  • use half the storage of traditional approaches
  • Cut infrastructure costs so they can invest savings in revenue-generating opportunities


Integrate NetApp into Your SNW Spring Experience


Visit NetApp experts at Booth 508 for a deeper dive into the products and solutions that will make your data center more efficient. Ask us how you can win an Apple(r) iPad(tm). And visit us in the following locations as well.


Fibre Channel Industry Association, Booth 509

Get the latest on 8Gb Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) solutions from NetApp and other industry leaders.


Cloud Pavilion, Booth CP3

The SNIA Cloud Storage Initiative (CSI) was created to foster the growth and success of the market for cloud storage. As a member of CSI, NetApp will participate in the SNIA Cloud Pavilion. We will discuss our cloud strategy, our products and solutions for the cloud, and the role of cloud standards in the market. Cloud standards such as the Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI) enables the portability of data between two separate clouds: private-to-private and private-to-public.


Unified Storage -- Infrastructure Hands On Lab

Participants will configure a unified Ethernet SAN environment including NetApp storage controllers with the Unified Target Adapter running Data ONTAP(r) 8.0.1. Host Systems will connect to the NetApp storage using Fibre Channel over Ethernet, iSCSI, and NFS all over the same wire, showing the benefits of a unified instructure.


Learn from our Customers and Experts


NetApp will be featured in a number of sessions that will delve into topics ranging from FCoE to data optimization and more. Check out the NetApp sessions and learn how to better manage your storage solutions. Add the following NetApp sessions to your onsite agenda:
