Our mission has always been to help our customers achieve what matters most to them.
In 1993, we shipped our first data storage system to Patrick Mulrooney, who at that time was a system administrator at Tandem Computers. The network appliance was designed to clean up his infrastructure sprawl. He loved its simplicity.
“Patrick’s favorite attribute was that our system rebooted in 30 seconds instead of hours like our competitors,” says NetApp co-founder, Dave Hitz. “While solving his downtime problem, we also gave Patrick a competitive edge.”
More than 20 years later, our story is still about delivering innovation that gives our customers an edge over their competitors. From the edge of the universe with CERN’s Large Hadron Collider, to the edge of human endurance in Formula One auto racing, we help you do things you couldn’t before—at speeds you never thought possible.
Throughout the world, leading organizations count on NetApp for software, systems, and services to manage and store their data. We help enterprises and service providers envision, deploy, and evolve their IT environments. Customers also benefit from our open collaboration with other technology leaders to create the specific solutions they need.
Our team is passionate about customer success. Our company culture and work environment support that dedication. Together with our global network of partners,
we are united in one goal: to help our customers achieve the outcomes that matter most to them.
“The Project Delivery Summit has brought to light education and training opportunities highlighting project management disciplines to better enable the successful delivery of State IT Projects. It has filled a need in terms of delivering free training on the pillars surrounding managing projects to the State of CA workforce. With the public and private sector working together to create content, the workforce has benefited in terms of exposure to education and training that otherwise they may not have gotten. This summit is in its second year, and 70% of the attendees were new to the summit. Not only are IT personnel invited to this summit, but the department’s program areas are invited as well in order to better educate them. Through this exposure, the Department of Technology has been successful in launching our Project Academy Series which takes a deeper dive into the content that is discussed in these forums. The better educated and trained workforce, the more successful we will be in delivering projects for the State of CA.”
