"Organizations looking to transform data into valuable business results are often bogged down by inefficient infrastructures that are not designed for performance intensive workloads," said Ritu Jyoti,
Research Director, Infrastructure for Big Data and Analytics, IDC. "Lacking the speed required to analyze 3rd platform data and yield critical business insights in real time, they know that throwing expensive updates at their infrastructure isn't a solution. Companies need a solution that offers the best price/performance to solve this business challenge."
"We know that technology changes fast and that's why we are always on top of breakthroughs in application and infrastructure architecture,"
"Data is the engine that powers modern business," said Eric Stoltman, vice president and general manager of the Hyperscale Storage Group at NetApp. "NetApp's new solutions deliver enhanced performance, efficiency and flexibility for companies looking to harness data that is distributed, dynamic and diverse."
