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.
“Keep up the good work these events are needed.”
