On the eve of completing

their 10 years in India, href="">NetApp,

which offers innovative storage and

data management solutions, has unveiled new platform features,

products, and technologies that will help customers make the

transition to a flexible and efficient, shared IT infrastructure. The

company has registered a 32 percent growth in 2010 as compared to

2008, and has acquired Bycast in May, this year. Started with NAS,

the company has more than 30,000 SAN deployments.

Rajesh Janey, President,

NetApp India and SAARC said that more than one billion consumers

receive cloud services from NetApp. "In India, we have our

presence in 60 cities and have over 700 customers, and close to 2,500

system installations. We are targeting government, BFSI and telecom,

and work with VARs and regional SIs," he said. According to

Janey, shared IT infrastructure solutions are spearheading the

transition from the traditional approach to an on-demand model. The

comprehensive portfolio of new platforms and solutions will help

businesses in their transformation to a flexible and efficient,

shared IT infrastructure. This would enable them to capitalize on new

opportunities, go to market faster and innovate ahead of their

competition. Speaking to The DQ Week, Surajit Sen,

Director-Channels, Marketing and Alliances, NetApp said, that the

company will continue to focus on its 87 partners, and offer

educational programs for them.

"We give shared IT

infrastructure to our customers based on future-ready efficiency.

NetApp provides significant savings, that include

performance-per-dollar and capacity-per-dollar," said Syed

Masroor, Manager-Pre-Sales, NetApp. "There is a significant

change underway, as CIOs look to better align IT to the speed of

business and get IT budgets under control,” said Tom Georgens,

President and CEO, NetApp. According to Georgens, the decisions IT

leaders make, will not only impact how they compete today, but also

the long-term success of their businesses. "Winners in this

market are thinking and choosing differently, and more customers are

turning to NetApp as their storage platform, to achieve greater

flexibility and efficiency. We are paving the way for customers to

transition to a shared IT infrastructure, that will help them to be

ready for the future and use IT as a tool, to capitalize on new

growth opportunities,” Georgens added.
