In its second quarter of fiscal year 2013, NetApp’s culture of innovation was on display across every aspect of its business. NetApp continued to strengthen and extend its best-of-breed partner ecosystem by announcing new joint solutions and key integrations with industry leaders such as Cisco, Microsoft, VMware, Oracle, and Citrix that will help customers of all sizes accelerate their businesses. A foundational component to several of the new joint offerings is NetApp’s Data ONTAP, the world’s #1 storage operating system.



Highlights include:

NetApp Announces Definitive Agreement to Acquire CacheIQ, Inc.

The acquisition will provide NetApp with intellectual property that extends its capabilities to support nondisruptive operations for enterprise data center environments. NetApp will integrate this intellectual property into its product offerings over time. Financial terms of the acquisition are not being disclosed at this time.



Best-in-Class Partner Integration Fuels Innovation for Customers

The FlexPod data center platform now features support and validation for VMware vSphere on NetApp clustered Data ONTAP to help organizations drive growth by adding nodes to their storage cluster creating large storage pools that span storage devices and can scale almost infinitely. The two companies also introduced ExpressPod, a prepackaged and tested solution for growing small and medium-sized organizations that require increased IT efficiency and simplicity.

The integration will also enable customers to securely manage and deploy infinite storage poolsand to deliver nondisruptive migration of data among hundreds of virtual machines at a time. Customers will be able to achieve continuous data access and uninterrupted business operations as their infrastructures grow and scale in capacity and performance.

· NetApp and Oracle integration helps customers reduce cost and complexity of managing business-critical applications. NetApp achieved Oracle Validated Integration of the NetApp Storage System Plug-In version 1.0 with Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c, extending the application-to-disk coverage of Oracle Enterprise Manager environments that include NetApp managed storage.

NetApp introduced NetApp Flash Accel to speed customer application performance by turning server-side Flash into a cache for storing “hot,” frequently accessed data. From servers to their back-end storage, cost- and performance-conscious system architects can now balance how Flash is used within their organizations to maximize application performance, minimize rising IT costs, preserve high availability, protect data, and simplify management. NetApp also expanded its Alliance Partner Program to embrace hardware and software server-caching partners looking to develop solutions with NetApp. This will provide the widest coverage for joint customers’ infrastructures as they deploy server-side caching to deliver increased ROI.

· NetApp signs technology reseller agreement with Fusion-io. As part of its commitment to providing customers with end-to-end Flash technologies, NetApp entered into a resale agreement with Fusion-io, a leader in Flash memory solutions.
