ATG will not be missed

This group didn't do much... not much R&D came from there. Also notice that NetApp is a one-product company; anything outside of the core product line is met with stiff resistance from the rest of the company, including acquisitions.

NetApp's engineers aspired to become TD (technical directors), who were the most useless people at the company, with no deliverables and no accountability. ATG attracted folks like them. The TDs were full of arrogance, because they had "made it to the top," they will not be missed.

Surprised to see Beepy posting here. He didn't do any work in the last 20 years! Just rested and vested at NetApp. It took Pure less than 20 years to figure out he was worthless, and gave him the boot.
