NetApp and Fujitsu NFLEX: More details emerge about European HCI tryst


Re: Boring...

Fujitsu is huge outside the US. There is more to the world than commodity pizza boxes and Cisco UCS. Its actually a very smart move to partner with a large vendor in Asia and EMEA. NetApp is making some seriously smart moves. This forum is used to bashing them for their period of stagnation. They are coming out the other side.

Nimbus Data CEO shoots from the hip at NetApp's SolidFire buy


Insiders view.....

NTAP Employee here - what you are witnessing is a well planned comeback by fresh new leadership team. What's really important is not public knowledge....yet. This purchase helped NetApp begin to compete after being late to the game. Solid Fire is a top notch company with an incredible product. I had the pleasure of meeting the leadership as well as a few key developers and they are some of the smartest people in the business. What they are working on now will be second to none. The turn around of NetApp has begun. Nimbus only dreams of their product existing in NetApp / Solid Fires customers data centers. I had to look up who Nimbus was as they are not even on the radar. With NetApps existing customer base and Solid Fires penetration into markets that NetApp currently does not operate in can only lead to positive outcomes. Solid Fire will directly benefit from the NetApp channel and sales force. Lastly - NTAP has new fresh leadership in many key roles. This will and has begun making the difference. NetApp will be a new company when it comes out the other side. I wouldn't bet against it.
