  • 28 April, 2004 14:39

<p>Customer adoption has exceeded 1,000 terabytes of NetApp(R) compliance storage</p>
<p>FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sydney - April 28th 2004</p>
<p>Network Appliance, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTAP), a leading provider of enterprise network storage solutions, has announced that its enterprise customers are using more than 1,000 terabytes (1 petabyte) of NetApp compliance storage, a critical milestone for the regulatory compliance storage market. As evident by widespread customer adoption in regulated data industries such as financial services, healthcare, life sciences and government, NetApp
SnapLock(TM) compliance solutions continue to empower customers with greater flexibility and choice as the industry's online data archival and preservation solution. SnapLock software and NetApp storage systems enable customers to comply with the vast number of rules and regulations worldwide that govern how businesses need to store, protect, manage and retrieve
critical business, employee and customer data.</p>
<p>"Addressing regulatory compliance and ensuring proper management of electronic records will continue to be two of the highest priorities for enterprises as the market for compliance-related storage hardware and software solutions and professional services grows to nearly a US$6.0 billion market by 2006," said Peter Gerr, Senior Analyst at Enterprise Storage Group. "NetApp has clearly emerged as an industry leader for companies seeking to mitigate risk, simplify data management and reduce the cost and complexity for their regulated data storage needs."</p>
<p>Leading application partners for compliance data continue to ship solutions that support NetApp SnapLock. The companies that already support the software today include AXS-One, CYA Technologies, CommVault Systems, Documentum, Enigma Data Systems, FileNet, FileTek, iLumin, KVS, Legato, OpenText-IXOS, Optika, Princeton Softech, VERITAS Software, Vignette and
ZANTAZ.</p>
<p>"VERITAS is working closely with NetApp to deliver advanced, integrated solutions to make data management, migration, retention, and retrieval simple and cost-efficient," said Brenda Zawatski, Vice President of Product Marketing for VERITAS Software. "Together, we are focused on driving the future of disk-based data protection and true enterprise-wide data lifecycle management."</p>
<p>SnapLock software utilises open industry standard protocols, enabling third-party application vendors to experience simple and seamless technology integration. These factors distinguish SnapLock from other magnetic disk-based WORM (write once, read many) solutions, which require applications to write to proprietary, closed APIs that make access and
integration more challenging.</p>
<p>"Protecting regulated data is a critical concern for many of our customers," said Patrick Rogers, Vice President of Marketing at Network Appliance. "Widespread customer adoption and the rapid support of SnapLock by numerous industry-leading partners prove that NetApp regulatory compliance solutions are meeting the needs of our customers for maximum simplicity, flexibility and low cost."</p>
