NetApp's mid-market advance in SANs

NetApp's mid-market advance in SANs

Network Appliance (NetApp) has extended its range of storage area network systems with the FAS3070 and V3070 series platforms aimed squarely at the mid to lower-enterprise market.

The company has also refreshed its Manageability software suite and introduced new professional services aimed at improved data centre management for customers.

Marketing and alliances director Mark Heers says the offerings are particularly important in Australia and New Zealand, where mid-market size companies are dominant.

“It’s exciting for these markets where the middle tier is the absolute sweet spot of the organisations in these countries.”

Heers also highlighted the unveiling of NetApp CommandCentral Storage by Symantec, the result of an extended partnership between the two organisations. The software integrates storage resource management, performance, policy management and provisioning for high-end heterogeneous SAN environments.

Also among NetApp’s announcements were updated products for file management with a new version of its Virtual File Manager Enterprise Edition and a new Virtual File Manager Migration Edition to support file migration and file share consolidation.

Heers says the new migration offerings allow resellers more opportunity to offer services, especially in the migration to new Windows' operating systems.

“We think the ones in this market who only sell security, and don’t add value, are the ones who are really struggling.”

The new products are available from NetApp’s main New Zealand partner, Infinity Solutions, and its other resellers.
