Business Segments Description



We operate in one reportable industry segment: the design, manufacturing, marketing and technical support of high-performance networked storage solutions. 

NetApp products and solutions are based on the premise that not all data is created equal. Enterprise customers face a significant challenge in designing networked storage infrastructures that balance the availability requirements of their applications and associated data with the cost of the storage solution. Storing all data on an expensive, monolithic, mainframe-class array is no longer acceptable and customers want to carefully evaluate the value of their information. As a result, data is being classified by availability and performance requirements in relation to cost.

• Business-critical data. Business-critical applications, including trading-floor applications and ERP systems, require the highest levels of availability and reliability, have more dedicated management resources, and exhibit the least amount of cost sensitivity. If this data is unavailable, the business is typically not generating revenue and may incur other financial penalties.

• Business operations data. This category includes data used by externally visible business operations applications, including e-mail, customer support applications, and external Web sites. If this data is unavailable, it may be apparent to customers and prospects, impacting revenue and reflecting poorly on the organization. As such, this data has higher reliability and availability requirements, and typically requires more significant storage infrastructure and data management software investments.

• Back office data. This class of data is accessed by internal employees, and while the availability of the data is not important to customers outside the business, it can have a big impact on the users of the data inside the business. Examples of business internal data include corporate intranets, HR systems, and data warehouses used for analytical purposes.

• Departmental and remote office data. Departmental and remote-office deployments also require a low-cost solution, but typically need higher levels of availability with low management overhead. Data in this class is typically not used outside the department or remote office.

• Compliance data. These assets represent much of the corporate or personal data related to conducting business, performing research, buying and selling securities, or other mission-critical, fiduciary, or private activities. This information, like any hard asset, needs to be protected, monitored, maintained, exchanged, and secured.

• Reference data. Types of reference data include e-mail archives; bank, brokerage, and billing statements; medical images and records; mechanical computer aided design (“MCAD”) drawings; integrated chip designs; and seismic and satellite data. Customers require fast data access at costs comparable to much slower high-end tape or optical libraries, with minimal ongoing management costs.

• Archive data. Enterprises require a low-cost storage solution for archive data and backups, which have historically been stored on magnetic tape. Many customers are now augmenting magnetic tape and storing these classes of data on more flexible disk-based systems which reduces backup windows and enables rapid recovery in the event of a disaster.

Network Appliance solutions meet the needs of archive, reference, departmental/remote office, business internal, business operations, and business critical data with a common product architecture and data management methodology, enabling customers to easily deploy and manage all their networked storage infrastructure in the same way.

System Products

NetApp products consist of fabric-attached storage (“FAS”) appliances, also known as filers, NearStore® systems, NetCache® content delivery appliances, the Data ONTAPTM operating system, our WAFL file management system, data management and content delivery software, and NetApp Global Services. Our configured appliances range in price from $4,000 to more than $1,000,000.

The NetApp solution runs on a common architecture across all NetApp systems, allowing for optimal scalability and increased flexibility. Customers can protect their existing investments and consolidate both compliance and non-compliance-related data on a single platform, helping to simplify compliance management and reduce storage costs. Through open standards, NetApp helps ensure rapid application deployment and smooth integration into its customers’ existing infrastructure. Our data management features help provide you simple management, improved data protection, and reduced operational costs.

All NetApp systems come packaged in rack-mountable enclosures that can be installed in a customer’s existing server racks or can be factory-installed and configured in cabinets. Our appliances are based primarily on commodity hardware, including Intel® Pentium® processors, an advanced implementation of the industry-standard PCI bus architecture, standard Ethernet adapters, and either Fibre Channel-Arbitrated Loop (“FC-AL”), Advanced Technology Attachment (“ATA”), or Small Computer System Interface (“SCSI”) disk interconnects.

Filers

NetApp filers are scalable, highly available, unified networked storage systems for data storage and simplifying data management. They are specifically designed for highly scalable, network-centric IT system architectures, and support both network-attached storage (“NAS”) and storage-attached networks (“SAN”) on a single, unified platform. Our filers are designed for and deliver lower total cost of ownership than alternative competitive systems. Heterogeneous data sharing allows our systems to deliver simultaneous data access to Linux, UNIX, Windows, and Web-based servers and clients, dramatically lowering the total cost of ownership and management complexity versus homogeneous storage systems. Filers are available in either single-node configurations or fully redundant, active/active cluster configurations that provide high data availability for business-critical environments.

Current filer products include:

• NetApp FAS 980c/ FAS980 enterprise servers. Introduced during fiscal year 2004 and built for the most demanding customers, the FAS980c is our highest-performance filer. The FAS980c continues the NetApp tradition of providing industry-leading performance in a simple, reliable, flexible, and manageable system. The FAS980c is designed to accommodate thousands of independent users and large, high-bandwidth applications. With the capability of managing up to 64 TB of data in one system and 8TB in one file system, the FAS980c can meet the storage demands of virtually any enterprise — including iSCSI or FC SAN and NAS configurations. The NetApp clustered filer architecture integrates multiple processors in an active/active clustered failover configuration to provide high availability and scalable performance to multiple networks.

• NetApp FAS960c/ FAS960 enterprise server. Similar to the FAS 980c/980, the FAS960c and 960c are systems that are deployed for demanding SAN or NAS applications but require less capacity. Available with up to 48 TB of storage, these systems are deployed in a broad range of enterprise applications, including Customer Relationship Management (“CRM”), Enterprise Resource Planning (“ERP”), Decision Support Solutions (“DSS”), massive home directory consolidation, and Web serving.

• NetApp FAS940c/ FAS940 enterprise server.

NearStore Systems

NetApp NearStore products are designed for improving data backup and recovery architectures, storing reference and regulated data, and archiving infrequently accessed files. NearStore systems back up and restore data with speed, consistency, ease of use, and scalability, particularly compared to tape-based backup/restore solutions. The product complements and improves upon existing tape backup processes by inserting economical and simple-to-use disk-based storage between application storage and tape libraries, resulting in an efficient two-stage backup configuration. Almost any type of primary storage can be backed up to NearStore systems, including UNIX, Linux, and Windows servers with direct-attached or SAN-attached storage from all other storage vendors, desktop and notebook computers, and NetApp filers. NearStore can also be used as a replication target within a data center, or for replicating data from remotely distributed offices or branches to a central location in a fully heterogeneous, platform-independent architecture.

NearStore systems are also ideal for consolidating nearline data resources, including reference and archive data into a single storage platform. This platform can be located and managed centrally, thus reducing costs associated with data center operations.

With the advent of Rule 17a-4 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) and HIPAA as well as several governmental defense requirements, NearStore, in conjunction with NetApp SnapLockTM software, has become part of an open access data-retention solution targeted at regulated data industries, such as financial services, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and government.

Our current NearStore product, the R200, is available in system capacities scaling from 8TB to 96TB, and provides full fabric-attached storage connectivity via FCP, iSCSI, and NAS protocols.
