NetApp Partners: Company Is Primed For Flash Storage, Cloud And The Next-Gen Data Center
#NetApp, a company whose sales and earnings have been hit over the past couple years, is navigating through a number of industry transitions and expects to come through a stronger company ready for the cloud and all-flash data centers. That’s the message from NetApp executives to customers attending a series of executive briefings, including one held Wednesday in San Diego that was attended by CRN. The event featured NetApp co-founder and Executive Vice President Dave Hitz and Henri Richard, the company’s new executive vice president for worldwide field and customer operations. It is a message that resonates with the channel, said Scott Miller, director of data center business at World Wide Technology, a St. Louis-based solution provider and longtime NetApp channel partner.
