« ITaaS with NewScale & NetApp | Main | NetApp Ranked 5th Best Place to Work for 2011 »

Interesting overview & analysis. Netapp has indeed been a true innovator. What I'm missing something about Data Protection beyond RAID. Many agree that RAID will not be able to provide sufficient availability & reliability levels. Erasure coding and dispersed/distributed storage are growing in popularity. What's your view on the future of RAID - how much longer will it be around?


One of the best parts about being a NetApp customer is seeing the light that NetApp is shining, and it also comes as almost a grassroots effort to want to grab everyone else by the wrists and drag them along for the ride as well.

I've done that several times with a few other (non-NetApp customers) users, and it was amazing to see their eyes light up and the smiles come across their faces when the light bulb went on and they "got it."
